Midwife Consent for Waterbirth Mobile App

Though warm water immersion in labor and birth has existed for a long time and in many cultures and has been studied and found to be safe, it is still considered an “alternative” practice by the field of obstetrics. For this reason patients are required to sign the Midwife Consent for Waterbirth mobile app listing the potential benefits and risks of water birth.. The app lists the criteria for waterbirth deliveries.
