This book contains the proceedings of the first International Water Birth Conference held in London, April 1995. The conference was set up to allow practitioners and researchers from all over the world to come together and share experiences and expertise in order to understand and explore the effects of what is virtually an entirely new environment for birth. This book further extends the objectives of the conference in trying to answer some of the questions surrounding water birth. Water Birth Unplugged covers all aspects of water birth, written by some of the most prestigious and informed names around the world, with case records and data that illustrate the positive and satisfying experience that water birth can provide.
