Water Birth

Salam ramadhan ke 8 semua..

Semua tahu ke pasal isteri dr sheikh muzaffar lahirkan baby dia dengan cara water bath? 2hari lepas masa duk boring sangat tatau nak tengok cerita apa.Saya pergi bukak youtube pasal waterbath.Macam2 teknikla pasal water bath ni. But, Dr SMS wife is the first ever in Malaysia which using this technic for her child delivery. Correct me if I am wrong with this statement. It is so exciting to see those mama deliver her child with this way ok. Once of the videos, give me such a remembrance until now. Sebabnya, perot mama tu bosar yang amat , igtkan kembar tp sorg je.hehe. Even in private practice drama series, they've the episode on this delivering technic.

Ok lets see what wikipedia said:

Water birth is a method of giving birth, which involves immersion in warm water. Proponents believe that this method is safe and provides many benefits for both mother and infant, including pain relief and a less traumatic birth experience for the baby. However, critics argue that the procedure introduces unnecessary risks to the infant such as infection and water inhalation.

- masa tengok baby keluar tu, ada mcm2 jenis... ada yang misi tarik teruk letak atas badan ibu. ada yang satu tu dia biar lama anak dia dalam air.seriau ok..huhu.takut je baby tu lemas.Tapi kalau kita fikir lojik, baby tu masa dalam perut ibukan dah berenang dalam amnion fluids. Jadi, dia dah biasa berenang la dalam tu..


During the 1960s, Soviet researcher Igor Charkovsky undertook considerable research into the safety and possible benefits of water birth in the Soviet Union. In the late 1960s, French obstetrician Frederick Leboyerinfants in warm water to help ease the transition from the womb to the outside world, and to mitigate the effects of any possible birth trauma. developed the practice of immersing newly born
Another French obstetrician, Michel Odent, took Leboyer's work further, using the warm-water birth pool for pain relief for the mother, and as a way to normalize the birth process. When some women refused to get out of the water to finish giving birth, Odent started researching the possible benefits for the baby of being born under water, as well as the potential problems in such births. By the late 1990s, thousands of women had given birth at Odent's birthing center at Pithiviers, and the notion of water birth had spread to many other Western countries.
Water birth first came to the United States through couples giving birth at home, but soon was introduced into the medical environment of hospitals and free-standing birth centers by midwives and obstetricians. In 1991, Monadnock Community Hospital[1] in Peterborough, New Hampshire started to create a protocol for giving birth in water. More than three-quarters of all National Health Service hospitals in the UK provide this option for laboring women.

- dah lama la sejarah beranak dalam air ni..kita je yang xbiasa di Malaysia.



In an appraisal of 17 randomized trials, two controlled studies, 12 cohort studies, and two case reports, it was concluded that there was a definite "benefit from hydrotherapy in pain, function, self-efficacy and affect, joint mobility, strength, and balance, particularly among older adults, subjects with rheumatic conditions and chronic low back pain

-tapi masa tengok video tu macam2 pesyen.ada duk mencangkung, ada duk macam posisi bersalin normal..macam2.tapi tengoklah kesan dia katanya lebih kurang kesakitan daripada bersalin normal.


Childbirth is believed to be a strenuous experience for the baby. Properly heated water[2] is claimed by proponents to help ease the transition from the birth canal to the outside world because the warm liquid is thought to resemble the intrauterine environment.

Slowed labor

Because of the documented relaxing effects of water[citation needed], laboring in water is sometimes associated with a decrease in the intensity of contractions, and is thus thought to slow labor. While home birth experts (e.g. Harper, RN) argue that this must be evaluated on a case-by-case basis, some hospitals have adopted a "5 centimeter" rule, allowing women to enter the tub only once the cervix has already expanded to 5 centimeters (Harper 2000).

Maternal blood loss

For care providers who are inexperienced in delivery in water, it may be difficult to assess the amount of maternal blood loss. While well-developed methods of determining maternal blood loss in water do exist,[8]placenta "on land" for this reason (e.g. the University of Michigan hospital). many providers prefer to deliver the
On the other hand, some doctors and midwives see that waterbirths have actually been known to reduce the amount of blood loss. The water surrounding the mother actually lowers the mother's blood pressure and heart rate. Mothers still lose significant amounts of blood through the passing of the placenta.[15]

 -kurang darah keluar sebab tekanan dalam air


Water birth is accepted and practiced in many parts of the United States, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand, as well as many European countries, including the United Kingdom and Germany, where many[specify] maternity clinics have birthing tubs.

-negara asia tak meluas lagi..
