Waterbirth Guidance Template

A Model Practice Template for Hydrotherapy in Labor and Birth 

This guidance template uses “the most current information and best practices available to outline various roles and responsibilities when caring for [those who] labor and/or give birth in water.” The resource was jointly assembled by the American College of Nurse-Midwives (ACNM), the American Association of Birth Centers (AABC), Midwives Alliance of North America (MANA) and National Association of Certified Professional Midwives (NACPM).
