Waterbirth in Leeds

We have had many water babies born to BirthPrep parents over the last couple of years and some have enjoyed the new pool at Leeds General Infirmary. Until now the LGI has been the only place to go for a waterbirth in Leeds but now St. James’s Hospital is installing a pool. Work has started and it is expected that it will be finished and available to use by the end of April this year.

It’s always a good idea to find out as much information in advance. Even if you don’t want to give birth in the pool the water is great for pain relief.

In Leeds there is a Waterbirth Class held at St James’s Hospital in the Bexley Wing on the first Wednesday of the month from 7.30 pm. to 9.30 pm. There is no need to book. I know that several of our parents have been and found it really useful.
