Labour & Birth Checklist: Water

labour and birth checklist

It’s really important to drink plenty of water in labour – as it begins, with your powerful contractions and throughout birth, as well as when your baby is here.

It can be useful to have a water bottle with you so you can keep taking sips. Using a straw can also be useful in labour, so you can easily drink while resting in-between contractions.

It is easy to forget to drink water but you need the fuel it gives you – it can give you energy, it eases any headaches and it helps your body do what it needs to do to bring you your baby.

Book a session with me if you have questions, need some additional support or preparation for birth & baby.

An experienced specialist in pregnancy, birth & early parenting, I have worked with parents since 2002. I am based in the North East so I regularly work with parents from Newcastle, Northumberland, Gateshead and across North Tyneside. Face-to-face sessions will continue with North East parents but digital courses and online sessions means I can work with parents everywhere.
