The midwife today told me the details for the birth kit and birthpool liner we need to get etc. so I finally got to find out which birth pool we'll be using.
It's made for two people, so hubby will be there to "catch" the baby.
He said "I'm not doing it if I have to be naked too" and I have yet to figure out why he thinks I expected him to be naked lol. I told him he could wear a three piece suit if that makes him feel better.
I'm really excited about it - here's the link to the pool:
Thats a nice one. You should def have a rubber ducky in there with you like in the picture! He thought he would have to be naked too? Is it because its a bath? Some women don't even get totally naked in birthing tubs. I know most women who do the water delivery in hospitals wear a bikini top or sports bra in the tub. Whatever they are comfortable with.
I told him he could wear a three piece suit if that makes him feel better.
LMAO Oh god that made me laugh!!!!!
I actually joked with dh that if I have to get naked at any point of the birth then so does he... why do all my bits have to be out there for all to see but his keep hidden (Im only stirring him up for fun. Im going to make sure I have some of his board shorts in my bag just in case we end up in the shower etc )
for some reason I can't get the link to work... but its fantastic that you now know what you need to get how exciting getting everything organised!
oh it worked that time... my computer must have been having a fit. Looks great. Is that a little seat built in on the regular size one?

looks cool, but I don't see like pricing on it. Is home birthing expensive?
There are two ways you can do it - if you are doing it on your own, there are some you can order anywhere from about $40 - $150 that are meant for 1-time use. Then there are those which midwives and birthcenters get, around $300 - $400 that are "professional" grade meant to be reused by birth centers, midwives etc.
My midwife has several and she's letting us borrow one. There are industrial-strength individual liners that you order for each birth, so you just have to buy the liner, not the whole pool again.
The liner is just going to cost us $35.00, so not bad at all!
