Water births have played a new role in Spain’s private medicine health sector and are considered to be just as safe as non-births births, with some studies suggesting that they even speed up labour.
They supposedly offer less stress for a newborn, as they are born from water into water.
Antonio, a nursing and midwifery coordinator at the hospital, said: “Being immersed in a water bath helps the mother and baby to feel more relaxed as they conserve their energy better.”
“We’re very popular among the international community,’ Antonio continued. “We’ve actually had more non-Spanish clients here than Spanish.”
