Birth and Labor Tub Rental
People never sing…except in the bathroom. Birthing women also make their natural sounds next to running bath water. There is something about the power of water. People are drawn to water, spas, and sacred streams. Women in labor are drawn to water, too.

Water for the comfort of the laboring woman has been compared to narcotic relief. This means that many women find the immersion of their laboring bellies into deep warm water will ease discomfort much like a drug. Some women call water in labor, “Aqua-dural” word playing on “epidural” narcotic pain relief.
Whether you plan to labor and birth at home, or at a birth center or hospital, you will reap the benefits of a labor pool.
For those who plan to birth at home, the tubs have been tried and true for safe midwife assisted homebirth. Large enough to provide space for both the laboring mother and her partner and small enough that your midwife is able to reach over and in to assist in the birth of your baby.
For those women who plan to birth in a center or hospital, a birth tub is the perfect compliment laboring at home before it’s time to leave. Mother has plenty of room to freely float and totally relax. Deep relaxation has been shown to shorten the amount of time in labor.
Your tub comes with hoses, pump and a brand new tub liner which fits directly into and all the way over your tub so each mother has in essence, a brand new tub.
The tubs are equipped with handles on the inside and a soft cushy comforting bottom.
Tub rentals are paid in advance and can be picked up when mother is 37 weeks along. She keeps the tub until after the birth of her baby.
Tub rental fee $120 and non-refundable. We recommend that you contact and register by week 30 in order to secure a space on the schedule.
