Hi, just wondering has anyone had a water birth in canberra? If so, what was your experience like? and would you reccommend it?

Haven't had the water birth experience unfortunately, would have loved that for my daughters birth.
Calvary Hospital isn't too keen on the idea, I checked with antenatal midwife before birth. They do have a bath in each private delivery room to labour in but then strongly encouraged to get out before baby arrives.
Have heard quite a few people recommend the Canberra Hospital Birthing Centre, as those that I spoke to said they had fantastic water birth experience there.
Only problem is that you have to book in as soon as you know your pregnant. There are only limited spots on the books and its hugely popular.
Hope this helps, and maybe someone here has had water birth that could let us know more.
