Comments please – canvassing ideas for birth baths

At a recent conference attended by Ruth, a German midwife recounted how she used a much deeper container as a waterbirth pool .  With this in mind, what do you, midwives and birth practitioners, think.  It is not the bath that Ruth is stood in, rather its something to indicate depth.  We have a design but there’s no point going into production if there is no call.  Alternatively, we might start making it for the export market.  Do let us know you thoughts.

The Heart-Shaped Birth Bath at Leeds – Design Your Own Birth Pool.

Here isHeart-shaped Leeds birth bath by Aquabirths the Heart-shaped birthing pool in the finished room at the Leeds General Infirmary. A beautiful birthing bath, designed by midwives and hand made in Yorkshire. Made and delivered for under £7000!  The midwives wanted a very large birth pool so that women, short or tall, would have plenty of room to move around and adopt whatever position they wanted during labour. This is probably the biggest birthing pool on the market and really is a ‘statement’ birth pool.
