Includes 1 liner
The new material in the Eco pool does not have additives that have been linked to harming animals and people
Now includes disposable liner Midwives advised that a new liner for the birth was a necessity from a hygiene perspective, while mothers wanted to be able to relax in late pregnancy or do trial-runs before the real thing. One disposable liner is included and additional liners are available for just $73. Using a liner also means two “containers” for the water, giving added protection against water leaks and makes cleaning up a snap – removing a distraction after the arrival of your new baby.
Deep enough to give bouyancy without compromising midwife support The minimum recommended depth of water to provide buoyancy for a mother in labour is 45cm (Source: The Waterbirth Book by Janet Balaskas). New birth pool in a box has an internal depth of 66cm and since the sides are stiff when inflated.
New top handles added for control Mothers asked for a means to control their movements while floating and some wanted additional gripping points.
Three independent chambers for improved safety The sides of birth pool in a box are made of 3 independent tubular chambers stacked on top of each other. If one of them should puncture by accident, only 1/3 of the wall height will be lost.
Comfortable and welcoming This doesn’t look like a medical device! It is welcoming and the inflated sides are comfortable to rest upon. This is conducive to your relaxation which will enhance the production of the hormone oxytocin, speeding up your labour. Double-reinforced handles Mothers requested strong handles on the outside of the pool for use when leaning on the side facing out. They are angled at 30 degrees for comfort and secure the disposable liner in place.
Sturdy enough for birth partner and midwives to support from any position Once the pool is filled, the sides are sturdy enough for a 15 stone (95.5kg) person to sit on the side without collapsing it. If your partner plans to join you in the pool, we recommend the regular size.
Every single pool is inflated and left for 8 hours before testing and packing. Then 5-10% are randomly tested by independent inspectors. That means structural integrity you can depend on.
Fast to inflate and fill Any air hand pump or electric pump with standard fittings can be used to fill the pool in around 10 minutes, although some cheaper ones may not be powerful enough to fill the pool to the required pressure. Water filling time depends on your hot-water system. This Regular pool holds the equivalent of approximately 4 bathtubs of water.
