How to Use your Birth Pool

The soft floor, seat, and edges of the birth pool ensure that you can find the most comfortable positions in which to labour and birth. The water will make your body feel weightless and allow you to move with ease. The handles on the sides of the birth pool can be used for support when entering and exiting the pool or during contractions. The soft floor of the pool allows you to sit comfortably on your knees for extended periods of time.

Emptying & Cleaning the Birth Pool

After the mother has given birth, you can empty the pool by using the electric water pump provided. Before using the water pump, please use the strainer provided to remove any debris. These should be discarded. Detach the water hose from the tap and ensure that the water hose is hanging in the toilet, underneath the toilet seat. This will ensure that the hose will remain in place when emptying out the birth pool.
