I don't think the baby cares particularly if it emerges underwater or whatever

Hm, I have read things saying that it's more comforting for the baby because it doesn't go straight from "warm dark enclosed watery space" to "scary big cold dry brightness", it gets an intermediate stage where it's still in the water but has a bit more room & more brightness, & so can adjust gradually, that kind of thing. ... On the other hand, I suspect that most of the people I know now were not actually born underwater, & most of them don't seem noticeably scarred by the experience of being born.

But I fear that if it's all about how I feel then the baby is doomed to misery anyway. :-(
