TZ Doctrine tenet #3: Waterbirth vs Orthodox Childbirth

Waterbirth is superior to orthodox childbirth. It is easier for mothers and better for infants. I was born of orthodox childbirth myself. I discovered waterbirth last year. Waterbirth is currently not available for all women in all birth settings, but it should be. Waterbirth is better done nude than clothed, and doing waterbirth with the mother being nude may encourage privacy. It eases the transition from the womb to the outside world.

Waterbirth is accepted and practiced several countries like the United States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, and European countries (including Great Britain and Germany, where many maternity clinics have birthing tubs).
