Question: What are the Islamic rulings for a woman if she wants to give birth in water? Is it allowed?
Answer:

As long giving birth in water has been deemed as safe and does not entail any adverse effects on the health of the mother or the child involved, there is nothing un-Islamic about it; but it should be done under the guidance/supervision of an obstetrician.
