Why is Water Birth Lesspainful?!

Labor pain is caused by the uterine's hypoxic-ischemic during contraction. 

The two reasons of why water birth is less painful are :

  • 1. The buoyancy of water relaxes the muscles, reduces tension, and better for vasodilation. 

2. The water at 40 °C will make blood vessel dilate, accelerate blood circulation, and increase uterine blood and oxygen supply during contractions! Therefore, the degree of hypoxia is low during contraction, it shortens the time and reduces the labor pain!
