Waterbirth International

"Waterbirth International was founded in 1988
with one purpose in mind:n>
"To make waterbirth an available option for all women.""

To accomplish that vision changes have to be made to the way we treat women in labor and the way we welcome babies into this world. To that end, Waterbirth International has been working non-stop for over two decades providing education, training, programs, consultations and referrals for parents and practitioners alike.

And there have been major accomplishments on all fronts. We are very proud of the fact that we have assisted in the installation of birth pools in over 200 hospitals in the US and several dozen in other countries around the globe, including Mexico, Costa Rica, Switzerland, Taiwan, China, Turkey, Germany, Argentina, Ecuador, Australia, Philippines and India to name just a few.

We also assisted over 7000 couples with portable pool rentals for water labor and waterbirth. Countless more couples have watched our videos and DVDs and shared them with family, friends and providers. All of this has helped change the consciousness of birth and parenting.
