I have three options for my waterbirth tub......

My midwives rent out these two:

Birth Pool In a Box: NEW! Birth Pool In A Box

La Bassine: Water Birth Pools & Tubs for homebirth or hospital waterbirths. La Bassine Birthing Pools for your homebirth or hospital water birth. Water Birth Pools and tubs Accessories from Your Water Birth

They also have available to borrow (at no cost) a rubbermaid trough.

My midwives actually suggest the rubbermaid, they say that its sturdier to hold onto.

Anyone have any experience with any of these? I'd love to hear your feedback!

I don't have any experience, but my midwife has the birth pool in a box and la bassine. I'm going with the birth pool in a box because it looks more comfortable to me. But I don't think that helps you out at all.

I had the birth pool in a box, I really liked it and we'll be getting it again.

I've heard good things about the La Bassine but I don't have any personal experience with either of them. I've also heard of people using the rubbermaid troughs because they are sturdier and worked for them just fine.

I'd go with the Rubbermaid but mostly because space is an issue for me.

i had the bath in a box one. The handles were in great positions (and it HAD handles), the step (which I thought was weird before) turned out to be one of my fav things! Plenty of space, very sturdy and so easy to inflate/deflate.
