When you are pregnant with twins, you will have gotten a medical indication to deliver your twins at the hospital. This may limit your ability to have a full water birth experience in a birth pool.
Discuss the option of a partial waterbirth with your local hospital and the possibility of spending the first stage of labour, during the active phase, in the birth pool. This way, you can still enjoy the advantages of water birth—the relaxation, pain management, and freedom of movement during labour—while also adhering to the hospital guidelines. The second stage of labour will have to take place in the hospital bed.
