    I bought a birth pool in a box with my sister, we went halves on it because she was pregnant too and we were both planning home waterbirths. I didn't get to use it in the end but she did, she said it was fantastic. Hopefully I'll get a chance to find out next time! I looked into hiring one but it would have cost as much as buying one so I just bought it in the end.

    I bought a birth pool in a box from the Good Birth Company with a friend who was also planning a home water birth a couple of months before me.

    We both had successful home births - I laboured and birthed in it and she laboured in it. Like trixi, we just bought an extra liner.

    my neighbours daughters pregnant.. and has asked me if we can go halfers on a birthpool in a box + extra liner... so thats £55 each.. which is good.. but then looking on amazon.. ive found this

    http://www.amazon.co.uk/Splash-Play-Lif ... 99&sr=8-14
    and they also have a bigger one to.. 180cms x 60cms

    delivered it would be £27.. so im kinda stuck on what to do.. birthpool in a box.. would be sturdier for al to sit on.. me lean on etc.. but then for 25 quid diff.. does it matter?

    all opinions greatly recieved..:)
