Hiring a birthing pool gives you the freedom to enjoy your pregnancy at home. We offer industry-leading birthing pools on the Isle of Wight.
Our birthing pools come in two sizes. They are quick and easy to inflate (about 15 minutes). Each size includes an integral inflatable floor, cup holder, hand holds and in-built seat. Great for position changes or resting.
When hiring a birthing pool from us, you get:
- an inflation/deflation electric pump
- a new disposable liner
- a disposable water thermometer
- a disposable sieve
- a disposable clean water filling pipes
- a dirty water emptying pump and separate hose
- tap connectors
When preparing the birthing pool, filling times will vary depending on your hot water system. However, in most case, the pool will fill within 40 - 60 minutes.
Your pool is delivered 2-3 weeks before your baby is due and you keep it until your baby is born. After your babies birth, you can email or text to arrange collection at a time to suit.
For clients booking the complete midwifery package, the pool use is included.
How much does the birthing pool hire cost?
The hire of the pool costs £100 which includes a deposit of £30. If for some reason you cannot use the pool, the deposit will be refunded on return, provided the liner package is intact and hose hasn’t been used. The fee includes up-to one and half hours of our time if you require further information on delivery.
