Most Mothers who have experienced this type of birth will tell you that the water helped to soothe the "pains" of labor and that their babies seemed to "flow right out of them".
As a "Mermaid", many mothers are choosing to birth while in the water. As an advocate for Mothers and a waterbirther myself, I support Underwater Birth as a safe and gentle way to birth.Get Started
Midwives are trained professionals with expertise and skills in supporting women to maintain healthy pregnancies and have optimal births and recoveries. Midwives provide women with individualized care uniquely suited to their physical, mental, emotional, spiritual and cultural needs. Midwifery is a woman-centered empowering model of maternity care.
There are so many benefits of water birth! Birthing in water facilitates mobility and enables the mother to assume comfortable positions for labor and birth. It speeds up labor, provides significant pain relief, promotes relaxation, it gives mother a private protected space, reduces perineal trauma and eliminates episiotomies, is a gentle way to welcome baby!Learn more
The place in which you choose to birth is so important. Being able to birth in the quiet familiar environment of your home or the beautiful, serene environment of the birth center is an experience that Mothers and families love! Once a mother has had a waterbirth, she definitely wants to birth like that for ALL of her babies!Learn more

Mermaid Birth was exactly what I needed for my second home birth. The midwives were supportive and helpful and really made the recovery processes so much better. Can't thank them enough!
I have always said that the 25th would be Caitilyn’s birth day because I have had my last 2 babies 2 days after their due dates and my brother also planned his wedding for this day. So no surprise when I start having slightly more regular and intense contractions on Saturday the morning of the 25th. I let my Midwife know. She is happy to hear it and tells me that it sounds like I am probably in early labor and that it may be all day before things really pick up. My Mom and husband, Kevin are anxious to get this labor really started. So they encourage me to squat during contractions and walk between them. Things aren’t really moving along very quickly.
