This large Heated Birth Pool is the most luxurious, spacious Birth Pool we hire and the only one available in Australia. As we’re located in the Byron Shire, these pools are only available for local delivery or pick up and return by yourself.
The hire cost is $430 for up to 3 weeks, plus a $200 booking fee/deposit payable when booking, which is refundable at the end of your hire period providing the Kit is returned clean, complete and undamaged.
It is 1.5 metres square and 600mm deep, so there’s plenty of room to have your partner or even other kids in the pool with you. The depth will allow you to freely move around with room to spare, but not too high that you can’t easily step in and out of it. It can hold up to 1600 litres but around 1000 litres at 2/3rds full, is usually ample.
The heating unit completely controls the temperature, so the effort of regulating it won’t distract your birthing partner from your side and saves water as you only need to fill it once. You can fill it with hot water and use them to maintain the temperature or use them to heat the water from cold to 38 degrees.
The wooden frame is strong yet soft as it is all padded out on the bottom, sides and rims for your comfort and has a seat in the corner for you to rest on and then sit and marvel at your precious new little arrival once you’ve met them.
The water powered siphon system makes the emptying process a breeze. It siphons 600 litres in 10 minutes. It’s completely silent and does not require electricity. You’ll need to set your pool up within 5 metres of your draining point, which ideally can be a garden, floor drain or toilet. The hoses from your water source to your pool can be extended if necessary, upon request.
It is a 3 week rental period and we leave it up to you when you’d like your Pool Kit. I advise to allow enough time prior to your due date to set up your pool and not wait until labour begins. 10 days to 2 weeks is usually a comfortable time period.
Once it is set up, cover it with a double bed fitted sheet to keep off any dust. Don’t fill it with water until you are sure that labour has begun.
Should you need to extend your rental period, just let us know by the return date shown on the top of the tub. The daily rate of $20 will apply after that date and be deducted off the deposit you pay when booking your pool.
Our aim is to make this process as easy as possible for you to achieve the birth you desire.
