Hire Birth Pool in a Box
Are you thinking of hiring a birth pool?
If you have decided on a home water birth, the next step is deciding on where to get your birth pool. We are often asked about hiring our pools out. We sell our pools (please see our online store to buy your own pool and accessories) but hiring is a good option too and there are a lot of ways of doing that. As we don’t hire them out ourselves, we have put together some options, that will hopefully make your choice easier:
If you prefer to hire a Birth Pool in a Box, there are independent online companies who own our professional grade mini and regular size pools to hire out (for a 5 week period). If you google “birth pools to hire” several will appear including Mermaid at Heart, Barefoot Birth pools in the UK.
Alternatively, you may decide to borrow a pool from a family member or friend. If you opt to use a Doula they may offer a pool as part of their service. If you have a local Home birth group, they often own professional pools to hire out. In the UK, many NHS community teams also have Birth Pool in a box Professional pools, so you may wish to ask your Midwife. Whichever way you decide to arrange your pool, please remember to use a new unopened liner and a brand new unused hose even if it only had clean water through it.
Wishing you well in your decision making–please contact us for more information.
