water birth experience was AMAZING ... SO relaxing - MUM

Dublin mum Linnea Dunne said the experience of giving birth to her son in water was "amazing".

Linnea was interested in trying a water birth after spending an hour during labour with her first son Eddie (2) who was born in London.

"I found out about the pool being available in the Coombe. I felt water was something that I just felt quite comfortable with."

Linnea (32) who lives with her husband Gary in Clontarf described how the experts were guiding her throughout. Little Kalle was born on October 16 weighing 8lb 14oz.

"I felt safe in their hands. You can get out if you want, but I didn't want to. The lights were dim and music in the background. It was very calm and relaxing".
