In this presentation we will summarize the findings from our recent meta-analysis on neonatal safety with water birth.  In addition to discussing the main results, we will present the breadth and depth of evidence. This includes the types of research that provide evidence about water birth and the biases inherent in the research currently available. Finally, we will present unanswered research questions and directions for future work.  Participants will identify strategies for data collection and collaboration that allow using their own water birth practice to expand evidence.
