You may have already decided that your ideal birth will be at home and in water. Your first thought may be that your bathtub will serve as a suitable space to labor in and deliver your little bundle, but I assure you that there are far more comfortable options out there than that hard, difficult to get out of porcelain tub. Wouldn't you much rather relax in a flexible and comfortable, yet sturdy, pool with lots of handles for support and a built in seat? Doesn't that sound great? If you agree, you'll be excited to know that you can have this amazing pool for your own waterbirth! What is the name of this amazing device? It's the one and only Birth Pool In A Box, of course! Here's why you'll want to rent your very own:
1. It's inflatable
Space is often a major consideration for many expectant couples planning a home waterbirth. The Birth Pool In A Box is an inflatable birth tub, which means it won't take up unnecessary space while it is not in use. Compared to other non-inflatable birth tubs, the Birth Pool In A Box is light-weight and easy to set up in your room of choice. On top of that, it takes little time to inflate, line, and fill.
2. It's Affordable
Preparing for a new baby isn't cheap! I'm sure you've already discovered this for yourself. Every little thing adds up eventually and can get a little overwhelming at times. You'll be happy to know that you can rent the Birth Pool In A Box at a reasonable price with everything you'll need to set up and use the tub and still have some spare change left over to buy that really cute bunny sleeper you spotted the other day.
3. Did I mention how comfortable it is?
The Birth Pool In A Box features six handles, a comfy built-in seat, and a safe, soft floor. It even has a built-in cup holder to encourage you to stay well hydrated throughout labor. Unlike your typical bathtub, the Birth Pool In A Box has an adjustable upper wall chamber that can be adjusted for ease in getting in and out of the tub. Don't be fooled by the fact that the Birth Pool In A Box is an inflatable tub. Just because it may be more space effective than other non-inflatable pools, it is surprisingly spacious. Feel free to invite your partner into the pool with you as it has been specifically designed to accommodate both you and your other half. You can't do that in a hospital bed.
4. It has a great shape and so do you!
If you compare the Birth Pool In A Box to other inflatables, you'll notice that our pool is uniquely egg-shaped. Not only does this shape tend to fit better in birthing spaces, it also provides the choice to labor on either end. Some women prefer labouring at the narrower end, while others opt for the wider one.
Every woman is shaped differently and the Birth Pool In A Box is wonderful for moms of all shapes and sizes. The upper wall chamber is adjustable, so shorter women - like myself - can easily custom reduce the height of the pool to make it easier for us to get in and out. For taller women, the length of the pool allows for greater extension of the legs so you won't feel like a sardine in a tin. Other pools are round in shape and do not allow for optimal flexibility. The Birth Pool In A Box, even with its more elongated shape, is able to allow for a considerable depth to make sure moms are well immersed.
5. It's safe
Ultimately, it is up to you and your midwife to decide if a home waterbirth is suitable and safe for you and your pre-born baby. But, if you have the green light to go ahead with planning your dream waterbirth, the Birth Pool In A Box is sure to meet your approval. This pool is made from strong eco-vinyl, which is phthalate free and safe for people and the environment. All pools feature a white, fully visible anti-slip floor. You can be sure that our hospital grade pools have been made with high quality materials and are safe for you and your baby. The Birth Pool In A Box continues to rank as the #1 inflatable birth tub on the market and is the only birthing tub wholeheartedly recommended by Barbara Harper, RN and president of Waterbirth International.
