Where did you buy yours? I'm looking for a good deal, even though I have quite some time till I'm due. I'd like to prepare early. So if you bought yours online what site did you go through?

Personally since we're not due until fall I was thinking about waiting until the kiddie pools at Target/Walmart go on sale and just buying one from the store. We'll see though. Still not sure if we'll do a waterbirth or not.

I was thinking the same thing, but I'm not sure. Keeping all options open :)

I noticed we're due the same day!

i bought mine here... that pool ran me 30 and change with shipping. a thought on waiting...target or wherever may not have a suitable pool left if you wait for the end of season sales, and online stores are known to have limited stock in the off season as well. at least, i've had several friends have these problems.

I bought an inflatable three ring pool from Toys R Us for $30. It is quite roomy and seems pretty stable. Its all blown up and ready to go (except for the water of course!).

One thing about the kiddie pools at Wal-Mart/Target versus buying online...you'll want to find a pool that has an inflated bottom as well. I wouldn't have been able to sit down at all without it, and it felt better on hands and knees than a plain flat bottom would have felt too.

I bought mine from Birth with Sol for about $40, but the site is currently under construction...

I plan on getting mine from walmart or Target at the end of the summer since i'm not due until December.
Here is the website someone referred to me ...

Mine is from Canadian Tire, the "fishy pool" that many homebirthers use. It has the inflatable bottom. I see a few of you have linked to it above.

I have a really nice rented one that my midwife owns in my basement right now all ready to be set up.

I'm renting one from my doula for $50 it's a nice birthing pool made for just that. :smile:
