Three recent papers, a large observational study, a systematic review, and a patient preference randomized controlled trial, addressed the perinatal outcome of water birth. Although their conclusions differ as much as their study design, all three reached conclusions that are substantially flawed because they are not supported by the data and/or display a profound disregard for what a particular research methodology can and cannot do.
