How Does The Birth Pool Rental Work?

The birth pool rental kit includes everything you need:
- Disposable liner
- Inflating pump
- Lead-free filling hose -25 feet
- Faucet connector 3/4" MGH x 1" FIP

- Full instructions for use
** Any additional modification is the cost of the client responsibility (e.g. hose length, faucet adaptor)**
What Size Birth Pool Do I Need?
Birth Pool in a Box offers two sizes - Regular and Mini.
The Regular size is recommended if you are over 5'6 tall, or would like to have your partner join you in the pool.
If space in the room is limited, the Mini size is perfect!
Are Birthing Pools Hygienic?
Absolutely. Each pool comes with a single-use, disposable liner. After each rental, the pools are thoroughly cleaned and wiped down with disinfectant. We provide with each rental a brand new filling hose, pool liner, and faucet connector.
