I'm looking for a birth pool, La Bassine would be preferable....but I'm trying to find one for 'cheap' and don't seem to be having any luck...

I've checked out ebay and there really is nothing on there (I was looking on ebay.co.uk a while back and there were quite a few, now I'm in the US, there never seem to be any listed on .com!!) and craigslist....

Does anyone have any other suggestions? Or does anyone have one for sale (I'll try posting in the wanted section, but haven't had any luck with finding anything else so far...)!?

Have you looked around to see if there is a meetup.com group in your area? I see ladies in my local one selling tubs & other supplies a lot cheaper then retail! Typically you just need to buy a new liner & thats it!

Also check with your midwife, she might know of a previous client who'd be willing to rent theirs out (and all you'd have to purchase is a new liner). Thats what I'm doing. Good luck!

I'm having the same issue. Renting the tub and all the equipment from a local doula group is looking like it would be more expensive than buying a kiddie pool or stock tank. At least I'd be able to reuse the last two.

Thanks guys! I'll have a look... I have spoken to my MW about where to find one and all she's said is that they see the kiddie pools used frequently and the aquadoula for rent ($200 for 4 weeks and I think I'd prefer an inflatable!)...Didn't think of asking if any previous clients might lend theirs - they have a Facebook group, so might be worth asking on there!!

I just bought a brand new, in the box La Bassine from a mama on another message board! WOOOOOOOO!

I'm pretty happy about having this item off the list for sure!
