Abstract

Under-water birth has been considered as a safe method of delivery for healthy women with uncomplicated pregnancies after appropriate selection of women and respect of hygiene rules. However, perinatal morbidity after under-water births is not as rare as it has been considered initially. We present the cases of two neonates, who were transferred to our neonatal unit during the last 12-month period with water aspiration after their uneventful under-water birth.
