Are you planning a waterbirth? Is the bathtub in your house too small or uncomfortable to labor in? Thinking about buying or renting an inflatable birth pool?
Here are 3 reasons you'll love a Passages Birth Pool
1. Passages Birth Pools are affordable. They cost $99.00 to purchase and there is no additional liner to buy. After the birth, your support team can easily clean your pool for storage. It's yours to keep! Your kids will love using it as a splash pool in the summer or a ball pit in the winter.
(Please note that children should be supervised when using the pool for play at all times - the sides are too high for small toddlers to be able to get in and out on their own.)
2. Passages Birth Pools have clear bottom rings. Labouring undisturbed is one of the best ways to support a physiologic birth. The clear bottom rings of your pool allow your care provider to observe your progress without having to interrupt your labour. They also allow for some amazing photographs.
3. Passages Birth Pools are a cozy size. Whether your birth space or your water tank is on the small side, your pool will be just the right fit! You will feel anchored and grounded in this comfortable tub. Just the right size to fit into a small space, your pool will still be perfectly big enough for you to move into the position that is most comfortable for you to birth your baby.
