TCS / The Cover Story

01 January, 1998

At waterbirthing centers, mothers can take their children for underwater swims in the year after birth. Birth under water can mean the baby suffers less trauma than in a conventional birth. Soft music and the warm water relax the mother and heighten her feeling of contact with the child.
