Water Birth

We are proud to offer the option of labor and/or birth in water for our families. Our birthing center and our affiliated hospital (DeKalb Health) are distinctive in our region; no other facilities in the Greater Fort Wayne/Northeast Indiana area offer water birth as an option.

 

Water can help contractions feel less intense.

 

 

 

Our tubs are spacious enough for partners to join the laboring woman.

 

 

 

The laboring woman and her partner are welcome to participate in the baby’s birth as they choose.

Babies usually do not need to be separated from their parents. Bonding as a family is encouraged.
