Transcription: 
The main advantage of having a water birth when you choose a drug-free birth is that there's a lot of pain relief associated with it. When I was pregnant, somebody told me that it was like Demerol and I wouldn't go that far. But if you've been pregnant and late in pregnancy you've been able to be in the water and you feel the buoyancy and the lightness and your freedom of movement in the water, you get that when you do a water birth. It just helps relax you, it helps the movement during labor, and it can just make the overall process a lot better when you're trying to have a drug-free labor.
