Seven Steps for Enjoyable Water Birth experience:
Call (416-878-5392) or email for availability of the pool for your due date (we have a limited number available)
Obtain a clean, lead-free hose for filling and draining your Birth Pool. If you wish, we do provide a lead-free hose if you agree in writing to use our equipment. There is no extra charge for using our hoses, pumps or adapters !
Your can expect your birth pool arriving no later than the beginning of your 38th week of pregnancy.
We will set up the Pool at your house but we also do recommend to give it a “trial run” and bond further with your birthing space and birthing equipment.
Have a beautiful birth experience.
Ask a friend or partner to give us a call within five days of the baby’s birth, and make sure that the pool is ready to be picked up. We’ll come to your home to pick it up while you are enjoying your baby!
WHY OUR POOLS PROVIDE A FRIENDLIER SOLUTION?
1. Free Water Birth Pool Training We have been growing with the True Blue Natural Family Resources for the past 10 years, and we can say with certainty that we have witnessed an abundant variety of birthing experiences.We always visit each and every family who rents our products and services to be able to relate and help with specific issues that might arise.When we come into your house we stay for half an hour. We usually can help you by:
Examining your house and helping to you visualize your birthing place
Solving some of the little problems or answering some of the questions (such as “How the size of my water heater will affect the supply of hot water” or “Should I use my bath tub tap or the sink one?”), that seem to be the crucial ones within the context of labour and birth.
Making you and your partner more comfortable with the idea of birthing in water. We feel it is important for families to get a clear sense that they are not isolated, and there have been others all over the world walking the same path.
Not rushing thorough our visits. We stay as long as you need us, and when we leave all should be a straightforward “plug and play”. If there are any unanswered questions or further concerns, we are always available by either phone or email.
2. Heating Issues Commercial kiddy pools have no heaters. Without heaters, even in the summer times, water will cool down quickly and further management of warm water needed for labour becomes more difficult. It is dangerous to use a water heater in inflatable pools if the pools are not designed to be filled with warm water on the first place. Our pools have not only a different type of vinyl (the one that easily endures warm and hot water) and thick sheets of insulation but also an external pocket where the water heater can be placed safely and securely. 3. Issues of Size and Depth of the Pool Desirable depth for every birthing pool is at least 24”. Diameter of 60 inches makes pool comfortable enough to hold two people, birthing mother and her partner. Smaller pools and more shallow ones do not serve the purpose. To benefit from the so-called “natural epidurals” warm water provides the body (especially tummy) should be fully emerged. That is not always possible in the inflatable tubs or in a bathtub. 4.Ecologically speaking, we do provide a “greener” solution The word green sums up ideas about reusing, recycling and otherwise curbing unnecessary consumption. It is something we have been deeply believing in for years and following since the beginning of our enterprise. If you buy a commercial kiddy pool and you do not have disposable liner, most likely you will throw the pool into the garbage right after the birth. If you rent one of our pools, the only thing that ends up in garbage is your disposable liner. However, even a disposable liner is sturdy enough to be used as many times as you need it within one rental period (usually 4-5 weeks). Our green initiatives are:
Reusability of all parts: let us repeat once more, all that we use in TBT kits will be used repeatedly over the time. It refers to heaters (when they stop working we do not throw them away but send them back to manufacturers for repair), sturdy vinyl liners, insulation and sturdy sheets, hoses, adapters and pumps. By renting our products (and services), you leave almost nothing behind, avoid a piling up of objects that will not be used more then once, maybe twice in your lifetime. Our first tub we bought for ourselves in 1999 is still in use and it has provided support for close to 100 mothers and babies since.
TBT disposable liners contain no latex and our TBT hoses are lead free.
Finally, we have rent three-get one free policy. Yes, you can get a tub for free but there is a preliminary work to be done first. The truth is we are still waiting on the first family who will benefit from this particular policy although we do have a few forerunners. Well, you get the picture...
