Water birth

Q: Is water-birth permissible if a woman has covered the necessary areas?

A: This is not a respectable Muslim way to deliver a child. It must be done with the remembrance of Allah Ta`ala, with gratitude to Him and submission to His obedience.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
