Aw I'm sorry your hospital doesn't allow it! I would say it would be worth the drive if you can afford it.. My hospital allows them but I am looking into a birthing center or a midwife. I don't want any kind of interventions, I don't want to be continuously monitored or anything like that.
I want a water birth too! My hospital allows laboring in the tub but not birthing in them :-/
I'm not even pregnant yet and I am reading/researching and talking to everyone I can about all of my options and everything that can happen. I am determined to have the labor/birth that I want while keeping me and my baby safe. Good luck with everything!! Just do your research and educate your self and trust your body and do what you feel is best for you and your family!
