Last time my midwife provided one at no extra cost. I plan on using it again.

I believe the birth center has one they can bring here, but I'll have to ask before we talk about renting or buying one.

I have a garden tub that was freaking fantastic last time! My best friend used our midwife's BPIAB, and OMG, I spent her ENTIRE birth with 4 pots filled with water on the stove, boiling, because it didn't maintain its own temperature. It was straight out of Little House on the Prairie. It was terrible.

used my midwife's tub (she has 2 she loans out). Cost is included in her fees. I definitely plan on doing it again.

With Kate, we had the fishy pool, I spent HOURS in it, and yes, DH and my midwives were boiling water on the stove to keep the temp up.

With Paul, I wanted to get in the tub around 330pm, but it wasn't set up, we had the La Bassine, it took a while to set up, but I really blame that on us not being prepared, since I delivered at 37 weeks and we thought I had another month (I had delivered at 41 weeks in the past!). I got in the tub around 5 and Paul was born a little after 6, the tub maintained its temp perfectly. We rented it from my midwives for $100.

I am not having a tub. Last time I just hung out in the bath tub until 2nd stage and then I didn't want to be wet anymore. We have a 2 story house and I don't want to mess with the mess of having a pool.

we are in an apartment..and I wouldnt want to somehow damage the floors..running a hose to keep a supply of warm water would be hard..as would emptying it. I would love the experience one day..but the cleaning would be our responsibility..and I dont want to worry about it after birth..and neither does DH. our midwives do have three that they loan out

I bought the La Bassine. I'm glad I bought it because I plan to use it for my next birth in the future. I didn't have a waterbirth, but I did spend some time in it. I like having it up and ready just in case I want to labor in it or give birth in it.

yikes, 1 more question to ask my midwife.

We have a large juccuzzi tub here that I will probably labor in, though I've heard that it won't be good for the actual birth. But I've also heard that with plastic tablecloths it won't be an issue. Our midwife is going to come over to make an assessment at a later date.

We're considering the birth being on our back deck so we will need a tub/pool. Not sure where that will come from, but I have until summer to decide.

We aren't to give a baby milk, berries, or peanut butter. We are to introduce new foods one at a time. But it's OK to inject several viruses, bacteria, aluminum, formaldehyde, phenoxyethanol, animal serum, mercury, squalene and more into an 8 week old? I don't think so.
In order to be healthy it is an unfortunate fact that people must be allowed the opportunity to be ill. I trust my body and those of my children to work correctly against the relatively benign diseases they vax for, and do not trust the ingredients in the vaccinations.
Our choice to not vax isn't based in ignorance, poverty, conspiracy theory and rumor. It's research, common sense, fact and evidence based..something the medical community has largely forgot about.
