Choosing a Birth Pool
With water births becoming everyday more and more popular, the offer of different pools and suppliers also upsurges. You have 2 main groups coming up: inflatable birth pools and those with rigid walls where you have to build it. For more information on Birth Pool, you can Contact Us via online sources.
The last option is usually available through renting, but you can buy them if you prefer. You also have tubs, and those designed for births are generally found in hospitals (rare) and birth centers. Ensure your hospital is open to this option and recall that you never know if a pool will be available.
You might check with them if you can take your own birth pool with you. If you choose to give birth at home, the best option is to buy or rent one, since home tubs are not ideal for labor. And, of course, check with your midwife if this option is feasible for you.
There are a few things you want to look up when deciding which birth pool you prefer:
O Size of the pool: you might want to reflect the support of your birth partner in the pool during labour and/or delivery.
O Material: during labor one of the most common positions is leaning against the rims of the pool, and remember you will be kneeling most of the time so if it is not an inflatable pool make sure you have a pillow to lean over and also put some extra padding on the floor when setting up.
