omen who have given birth in water love to share their story and experience with others. Their courage, determination and love inspires all. Waterbirth International has been collecting birth stories and the name, birth date and place of birth since 2004. Our oldest water baby was born in 1974. Last year we passed the 10,000 water baby mark. In the beginning almost all births happened at home, but we have seen an exponential increase in the number of waterbirths which take place in hospitals and birth centers all over the world. Lend your voice to the growing database of babies that experienced a gentle beginning.
