Anyone any knowledge?

a friend of mine said 102kg was weight limit for George Elliott to have a water birth.

I'm at the leicester Royal infirmary, just wondered if this was standard or varied?

I've just been to a water birth class in Leeds. The main information I was given (NHS guidelines) is that you have less than 100kg between 37-42 weeks and not of been induced.

I put on a lot of weight when pregnant with my first and was definitely over this when I was in labour blush they let me have a water birth though but I am 5'8 and was never weighed so maybe I didn't look that heavy in my head at least

I'm about a stone over that, also 5'8 so it does spread a bit lol
