Water births?!?!

Lauren • ~Lauren~

So this is my first pregnancy and I haven't really explored ways of birthing yet. But I have seen this water birth thing. It looks like it could be easier or less stressful on myself and the baby but my mom is not so keen on wanting me to do that. I know ultimately it's my decision but my mother is my best friend and my support system other then my fiancé and dad and I don't want more stress then what I need. What's everyone's opinion on water births and some information on them that could help?!
