Assalamo’Alaikum my dearest Shuyuk,
My wife is due to give birth to our first child very soon. We are considering a water birth, and my wife is curious on what positions she should adopt for the birth. I have heard Moulana has mentioned the squat position is best for women. Please can you advise on the water birth and positions please. I also humbly ask for Moulana’s baraka for the birth, baby and mother.
Thank you & Ma’assalama
Wa alaikumusalam Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh,
Mawlana Shaykh Hisham is praying for you in sha Allah.
Giving birth natural with any position is the best for a mother It will be baraka when Holy Quran and Salawat are recited during the pregnancy. InshAllah may your wife have an easy birth and healthy baby and you will have blessed family. Here is link to water-birth.
