We planned one, but things happened too fast so I didn't make it to the birth pool.

Quote:
which tub did you use?
Midwife has Aquadoulas.

Quote:
How did the water stay warm?
It comes with a heating system. It keeps it at the temperature of the water you put in.

Quote:
When did you get out?
N/A.

Quote:
What if the water gets too hot?
If the water isn't hot enough you can add boiling water and if it's too hot you can just add cold water.

Quote:
Did it actually decrease your labor "pains"? Did you tear?
N/A.

Quote:
How did you fill it and drain it?
Hers came with a fill and drain pump. Fill the bathtub with water and stick the pump in it. It transfers the water from the tub to the birth pool.

Quote:
what did you do with the labor "stuff" that was probubly floating (sac/mucus ect)?
The blood will just drain with the water and you take the sac/placenta out.

Quote:
was it nasty sitting in the bloody water? weren't you freezing when you got out the tub and into your bed?
N/A. But if the heater is turned up there may not be a big temperature difference.
