I went to the hospital today to register as I have just moved to the area. I have really set my heart on a water birth for many reasons and chose this particular hospital because they said they provide that facility and it seemed like a really good maternity unit. When I asked about it today I was made to feel like I was a right pain in the arse for wanting something slightly out of the ordinary, even though they had previously boasted about this facility, and told that they only have 1 birth pool and if that room is being used when I go into give birth then I wont be able to have a water birth. I feel a bit let down and anxious now because I wanted to prepare myself for the event and feel like its all a bit unknown now I wont know until I get there whether I will get the water birth I want or not. Is anyone else having this problem?
