Are you thinking of having your baby at home? 

Or considering a water birth?

 

What is a Water Birth ?

A water birth is a birth in which the mother spends the final stages of labour in a birthing pool, with delivery taking place either in or out of the water.

It can be very calming for both mother and baby, allowing the baby to enter the world into a similar environment to the womb.

"The only inflatable birthing pool I wholeheartedly recommend."
