You’ve checked out your options and have decided that, as someone searching for a more natural birth experience, you’d like to find care providers or hospitals that offer the option of waterbirth in the Capital District. Not all facilities are currently equipped with tubs large enough to adequately deliver a baby while still being able to provide safe monitoring, so knowing your choices up front can be quite helpful! Below is a preliminary list of labor and delivery wards as well as practices who support birthing in tubs for lower risk patients in the Albany area’s local hospitals. Please note that all area home birth practices offer the waterbirth option for those who rent a tub.
