I rent mine from the midwife. I would suggest lying down a tarp if you are worried about the floor. Also lots of extra towels. Old towels are great for the floor.

 Definitely ask her. Chances are she knows someone who has a birthing tub that will be willing to borrow it out - all you would need is a liner!

I'd put down a tarp and ask the midwife if she rents them out or knows a good place to get one.

My midwife provides mine but my friend ordered a fishy pool on amazon for $30

That's a great idea! How much did it cost? A lot of the birthing pools out there are really expensive.

There's a lot of fairly inexpensive tubs available.

Birth Pool in a Box is popular http://inhishands.com/shop/Pools.63 and this ocean reef pool is also http://www.preciousarrows.com/category_s/34.htm

My midwife includes it in the cost. Depending on your area anywhere from 70-200 dollars.
