Title: Are there any risks to a water birth?
Author: Kvach, Elizabeth; Martonffy, A. Ildiko
Date: 2012-04
Publisher: Family Physicians Inquiries Network
Citation: Evidence Based Practice 15(4): 13.
Abstract: Despite reports in the literature of anecdotal adverse outcomes, water birth has not been shown in RCTs or observational studies to increase maternal or neonatal morbidity or mortality. However, research looking specifically at the second stage of labor in water is limited and would need to be undertaken to more thoroughly evaluate the risks.
