The Birth Center of NJ’s birthing suites are designed to provide you with a birthing experience that is natural, comfortable and safe. In addition to beds and birthing stools, we offer mothers the option of a water birth. A water birth often helps to reduce the pain and stress of labor, leading to an easier natural birth. Water birth during the first stages of labor has been shown to reduce the risk of episiotomy, as well as the need for epidurals. Other positives associated with water birth include a reduced risk of c-section, as well as better bladder control after delivery.
