Hello! I have posted on justmommies in the past...a very long time ago and I have been lurking lately. I gave birth to a son in October and I had bought a La Bassine birth tub. I ended up laboring in it for about 4 hours before getting out to deliver (LOOONG story!) I don't have a use for it anymore and it cost way too much to be used as a kiddie pool for my 2 year old (that seems to be everyones favorite suggestion!). Can you resell something like that? I know that I would have bought one had a been able to find someone selling it. Any suggestions? I hope I am asking in the right place! Thanks in advance for your help!

I had the La Bassine for my last birth and sold it to the assistant midwife. When you put it away just make sure that you've sterilized it and completely DRY IT! You can sell them on eBay or look to your local "home birth" circles. Someone on here might even be interested. I sold mine for $50.00. Whoever buys it can purchase the disposable liners if they're concerned about it having been "used". yourwaterbirth.com sells the liners and also some great iodine pads for cleaning the tub after use (I used one!). I am in the market for a new tub but I don't want the La Bassine again. It was too short for me, as I like to really lay out in the tub and not touch the other side. That's why I sold mine. It was TOTALLY the only thing about my last birth that I didn't like. Anyhow, good luck getting yours sold!

:ditto:

We borrowed one from my midwife and bought our own liner to go into it. I also didn't have my son in the pool, when I hit transition the water didn't help because of how I wanted to labor.

Thaks ladies! I really appreciate your help! I actually had no idea you could put that on ebay. I'll let you know how it goes. And if anyone on here IS interested, please pm me. Is there a seperate forum on to list that on?
