    I was induced and was able to get into the water for a bit but had to get out before the birth cos of the induction.

    mine told me i wouldn't be able to but it could vary at different hospitals, so give them or your midwife a call. it's a valid question so don't feel embarrassed to ask :)

    ps- water births rule :)

    depends what level of induction you have. I ended up with the drip and wasn't allowed in the pool from the moment it went in.

    I really wanted a water birth.

    at mine you couldnt becus when you are induced becus of the drugs they use they like to monitor your babies heartbeat for 1/2 hour every hours so this would make a waterbirth impossible. ask your mw tho hun it may be different.
