A pregnant woman and her husband travelled to Hawaii where they plan on having a “dolphin assisted birth.”   Twenty-seven-year-old Heather Barrington and her husband Adam of South Carolina are preparing for the July arrival of their first child through a series of prenatal and postnatal swims with a pod of dolphins at the Sirius Institute in Hawaii.

The institute describes itself as a “research consortium with the purpose of dolphinizing the planet.”  They recently set up the Dolphin Attended, Water, Natural and Gentle Birth Center.

During the Dolphin Assisted Birth, patients swim and play with dolphins living in captivity while completing tasks meant to improve skills like hand-eye coordination.   Heather said “Having that connection with the pod of dolphin brings peace, comfort and strength to the mother and baby during labor.”
