Pool rental
The most common birth tubs used for labor are:

  • La Bassine or Birth Pool in a Box, they are inflatable pool that have a cushiony bottom for comfort. I rent these pools exclusively to my clients.
  • AquaDoula, it’s a more stiff pool that has a heating pad to keep the water warm. You can contact Lena DeGloma if you are interested in renting this pool.
