Birth Pool in a Box Design
A. Fitted disposable liner - A new liner for the birth is a necessity from a hygiene perspective. The liner also acts as a redundant container for the water in the pool and makes cleaning up simpler.
B. Adjustable height - Some mothers need lower sides for ease of entry and exit. Just release some air from the middle chamber and top up the other two for a stable pool with lower sides.
C. Double-reinforced top handles - Mothers report handles here give them control over their movement in the water. They are also useful for gripping during contractions and to hold onto while getting in the pool.
D. Soft 2" high floor chamber - Mothers wanted extra comfort on the pool floor. Any higher reduces water depth.
E. No drain plug - Midwives and mothers agreed that a drain plug was an unnecessary weak link in a birthing pool.
F. Choice of two sizes - Beautiful Beginnings stock the full size pool
G. Three separate chambers - This is safer than a single chamber in the event of an accidental puncture in the pool walls.
H. Opaque external wall - Mothers unanimously agreed that the opaque external wall increased their sense of privacy.
I. Egg-shape - Some mothers wanted to be cosseted while others wanted space, so the pool was made narrower at one end and wider at the other.
J. Double-reinforced handles - Mothers requested these strong handles on the outside of the pool (2 sets, uniquely positioned) for use when leaning over the side. They are angled at 30 degrees for maximum comfort.
K. Tested for quality, durability and stability - Each pool is factory tested to ensure that it has no defects and then 5-10% are randomly sampled and tested again by independent inspectors. The sides are strong enough to allow a 15-stone person to sit or lean on them.
L. Plain blue rim - Mothers said they wanted a clear space to rest their heads with no distracting text or images.
M. No internal handles - Midwives and mothers agreed that internal handles might obstruct full movement and prevent effective use of a liner.
N. No rough edges - Mothers requested that seams be smooth where they rest their heads.
O. Clear inside wall - Mothers liked the perception of larger space created by having a clear inner wall.
P. Space for partner - The Regular pool has space for your partner should they want to catch your newborn as he or she emerges.
Q. White floor - Midwives requested a white floor to enhance visibility.
R. Internal seat - Mothers requested a comfortable place to sit while they bonded with their newborn.
