Frequently Asked Questions about Renting a Birth Pool

We have two types of pools: the Birth Pool in a Box Eco Mini Pool and the La Bassine Regular Pool. See the chart below to see the difference between the two pools.

Rentals are available for $210 + HST.

Our birth pools are rented for four weeks to ensure you have peace of mind leading up to your due date. You can pick up your pool 2 weeks before your estimated due date and can return it anytime before 2 weeks after your due date. 

The pool has everything you need, including an electric air pump to blow up the pool, a disposable liner, a 25’ drinking water hose to fill the tub, faucet adaptor, floating thermometer, submersible water pump/hose to empty the pool.

Learn more about choosing the right birth pool for you and how to prepare for water birth here.

The current evidence shows that waterbirths are not linked to an increase in newborn death or other outcomes, including NICU admissions, low Apgar scores, breathing difficulty, or infections.
