Birth / Labor pool ... any experiences will be of interest :-)
- If you used a pool specifically designed for birth, please share your thoughts on its design / shortcomings.
- If you labored in a standard home tub / pool .... what depth did you find adequate?
- If you delivered in a pool or tub, just curious if you ended up in a reclined position or squatting, etc?
I notice the inflatable pools vary in design - some with built in seats, strap supports , not really clear how "solid" the sides are once inflated.
(I am not due until November, and ideally will have a HB, but going through sticker shock at the cost of pools I am shopping online; renting in my area doesn´t appear to be an option and I am almost thinking a bathroom upgrade or hot tub would be a better investment, not that we would use the "hot tub" level of heating obviously) .
