I cant find what Im looking for. Basically what I want is a fold up wall. We are moving our bed downstairs into the living room, as Im giving birth in the tub in the dining room - and dont want to travel up the stairs up to bed for a few days (just to shower) So while Im in labor I want a kinda closed off area for me to labor in, while Im on the bed - and I though a partitioned wall would be perfect - but where do I find one? Im looking for like a 3 panneled fold up wall? any suggestions? Would it be easier to just hang up a sheet to get the same effect?

Hanging a sheet may be your best/easiest/cheapest option... Just use some thumb tacks.

here's some ones that might help

I had to do the same thing, labored downstairs and moved a mattress into the living room so I didn't have to do stairs. I thought about privacy as well and I did separate myself in early labor... However once active hard labor started I had DH, my 2 midwives and my best friend there... They were all really quiet though and it didn't seem to be a problem.

thats why Im thinking of just using the sheet, cuz I dont know if Ill need the privacy or not...usually when Im in pain I dont give a hoot, so well see - Im sure my midwifes are used to being in the background (which I feel bad about lol!!) So the sheet can come down or be put up as needed
