"What a wonderful experience! I'd do it a thousand times over if I could! Rayna was born in such a calm and loving environment. We also had the ability of not leaving our 2 1/2 year old son at any time which made things much less stressful. It's sad that more women don't know of the joys that a homebirth can bring. Birthing in water felt so natural!"

"Fort Wainwright, Alaska (Bassett Army Community Hospital) is the only United States Army installation in the world currently doing water-births!!! Many military wives who've had the pleasure of delivery by water-birth at Fort Wainwright are eager to spread the word and get other Army hospitals on board!"

This series of articles has been published in primarily pediatric journals. The American Academy of Pediatrics requested the committee on Fetus and Newborn to make a statement about waterbirth in 2005.The statement that was published was a selective review of current literature, including the following opinion pieces about waterbirth. None of these are based in scientific evidence or evaluation of thousands of cases.
