 New Water Birth Mirror can Ensure Safer Deliveries

With water births increasingly becoming popular among women who want to avoid the pain associated with labor, researchers at Loughborough University in Britain have developed a new adjustable mirror that can be used by midwives under water at the time of delivery during water births.

One of the major problems associated with a water birth is the need of the midwife to place a mirror under the mother to see whether the baby has started to crown and also shine a torch from the top in order to see clearly.

Now this might be a thing of the past thanks to Loughborough University with their mirror helping midwives to perform the process in a more comfortable condition while the mothers can also give birth in a more dignified manner.
