Lauren said, ‘I’m always taking a bath. I feel like that will really relax my back, my muscles, my n ** n. The only reason I would like to do it in bed is that it would be fun for photos. I let myself be blow-dried, spray tan and have my make-up done.

‘I want to have good memories to keep. I’m just kidding – I’ll keep the baby in tears, dripping with sweat, and probably with my hair all over. ‘

Water births: less pain for the mother and less stress for the baby

Water births are a popular alternative to air delivery, as many mothers feel like being immersed in hot water means they experience less pain during contractions and the delivery itself.

Water births work because the breathing reflex is triggered by the change in temperature as the baby is born and the feeling of air on the skin.

This means that, provided the baby remains completely submerged in warm water, they will continue to receive oxygen through the umbilical cord until they emerge, which means they will not drown.

While there is no clear statistical evidence that babies born in water receive health benefits, it means that the opposite is also true – there are no apparent negative effects either.

However, births with water are usually not recommended for mothers who have had complications during their pregnancy, as the baby may need to be monitored with sensitive electronic equipment that cannot be in the pool.

Water births are also not recommended for overweight mothers who have trouble getting out of the pool if their birth schedule needs to change quickly.

If you are having a home birth, efforts must be made to keep the water below 37C. A higher temperature can overheat the baby and cause unnecessary stress.

While colder temperatures are not recommended, this is largely because it negates many of the benefits to the mother – such as greater comfort – than because it could harm the child.
