Renting a Birth Tub

Interested in a water birth?

Dr. Michael Odent has called water immersion “Nature’s Epidural!”   You can read more on water birth benefits and safety at http://www.waterbirth.org/mc/page.do?sitePageId=45768&orgId=wi.

We rent a 140-gallon Rubbermaid tub; you may reserve it and it’s generally available 2-4 weeks before your due date.  This lovely tub has welcomed dozens of babies, and it’s:

  • Wonderfully sturdy and deep
  • Easy to clean
  • Big enough for laboring moms to assume just about any position (including hands & knees) while still being submerged & reachable from all sides
  • And somehow still small and light enough for one person to wrestle it into the back of a Subaru (usually.)

$50 per use; $100 deposit.
