Hello, anybody around this evening?

If the baby takes a breath of air and then goes under the water they can inhale water into their lungs.

susiedaisy Wed 13-Feb-13 21:26:02

Because if the baby took a breath when its head was out and then she dropped back into the water babe may drown so you need to either be in it or out of it

Prince the risk is that if the baby takes a breath and then goes in the water, he could draw water in. If they make sure the bum is in the water so baby comes out under water and doesn't take a breath until he is out and up - if that makes sense!

Thank you everyone - that makes perfect sense smile

I didn't know that, you learn loads off this programme.

It actually happened to a friend of mine - she had a home birth, difficult pushing stage and MW asked her to move. She stood up and baby came out all at once and fell into the water. They then had to be blue-lighted in and were in hossie for a week sad Baby is fine now smile

Nicole's sister seems really uncomfortable sat in the delivery room

BarnYardCow Wed 13-Feb-13 21:34:02

She looks like she might need the cardboard hat!

ChristineDaae Wed 13-Feb-13 21:34:07

Nicoles sister looks like she'd really rather not be there. I like them all this week

Lozario Wed 13-Feb-13 21:35:52

WRF with that holiday embarrassing bodies advert!!! <vom>

Lozario Wed 13-Feb-13 21:37:24

WTF I mean - don't know what is wrong with my typing tonight.

That blonde midwife - do you think she's like that in real life or is it for the cameras? She looked like she was staring at camera when she was doing that examination before the adverts!

susiedaisy Wed 13-Feb-13 21:38:22

Not sure with Nicole's sister if she's sqimish or a bit jealous

Lozario Wed 13-Feb-13 21:38:52

I like Naomi MW. I'd want her to deliver my baby out of all of them I think.

susiedaisy Wed 13-Feb-13 21:39:33

Think blonde midwife was looking up at wall

She done so well

susiedaisy Wed 13-Feb-13 21:46:29

If I didn't know he was with her I would think Jonathan was gay he seems very in touch with his feminine side

GettingObsessive Wed 13-Feb-13 21:46:55

You know you were saying about the not breathing in water, what happens when just the heads out? They don't seem to cry then, do they wait until their all out?

<clueless and 6+1 weeks here>

Lozario Wed 13-Feb-13 21:47:18

These two have grown on me now. Loved the Audrey nickname!

IsabelleRinging Wed 13-Feb-13 21:48:12

He is soooooooo good looking!

susiedaisy Wed 13-Feb-13 21:48:34

Getting, apparently they keep the water at the same temp as amino fluid so baby still thinks it in the womb and therefore doesn't draw it's first breath until it hits fresh air

BarnYardCow Wed 13-Feb-13 21:48:47

I think they are too squashed to cry until they are all out.
