Our birth pools are designed with safety as the top priority, with the single-use liners offering an effective barrier to water and germs. You can adjust the height of the pool thanks to our unique 3-chamber design, plus there are several handles in various positions for extra support and control. The integrated seat is the perfect height for resting after birth and for holding the baby’s head above the water during relaxation and bonding.
We offer two sizes of Birth Pool in a Box for personal use:
This option allows your partner to join with a comfortable amount of room. You can also stay well hydrated with a refreshing drink from our integrated cup holder.
This option holds 40% less water than the regular size, so it is ideal if you are concerned about your hot water supply. It still features the seat and cup holder, and there is plenty of space to move into different positions to aid comfort.

We only sell pools with liners for water protection and hygiene protection
Not mandatory to have a liner
The Birth pool in a Box pool and liner is an integrated system. Our Pro liner has been designed to be a snug fit of the pool and allows for complete comfort and no uncomfortable creasing.
The Pro Liner has pockets that fit over the handles which stops any contaminated water from seeping through into the base of the pool, whilst allowing women to still grip the handles. The liner is designed to use with the pool’s cup holder and a convenient hose slot, holding the hose firmly in place while filling and avoiding a hazard.
Our pools should always be used with a new Birth Pool in a Box liner. This is essential for infection control, peace of mind, full use of our pool’s features and for comfort. It also maintains the warranty that gives assurance and support. Generic liners should never be used with Birth Pool in a box.
Mothers like the perception of larger space created by having a clear inner wall
The regular pool has ample space for your partner, should they want to join you - many couples enjoy the intimacy and shared experience that being together in the pool brings.
We believe in taking advice from professionals and Midwives requested a white floor to enhance visibility in the birthing pool.
Mothers requested a comfortable place to sit while they bonded with their newborn in the birth pool.
Midwives said that some mothers needed lower sides for ease of entry and exit. So adjustable height with BPIAB is a must-have feature. Just release some air from the middle chamber and top up the other two for a stable pool with lower sides.
Mothers asked for handles here to give them control over their movement in the water. They are also useful for gripping during contractions and to hold onto while getting in the pool.
Mothers wanted comfort on the birth pool floor. All our pools have a continuous inflated floor.
Midwives and mothers agreed that a drain plug was an unnecessary weak link in a birthing pool.
Midwives recommended a 5” rim to safely rest on during entry and exit.
To ensure that labouring women are able to keep hydrated without having to ask for a drink, we have added a cup holder to our pool.
Mothers requested that seams be smooth where they rest their heads. This has drawn comment on our customer surveys, there are no rough edges on our pool.
Midwives and mothers agreed that internal handles in the pool might obstruct full movement and prevent effective use of a liner.
Mothers said they wanted a clear space to rest their heads with no distracting text or images or manufacturers logos
Each pool is inflated and factory tested to ensure that it has no defects and then 5-10% are randomly sampled and tested again by independent inspectors. The sides are strong enough to allow a 15-stone person to sit or lean on them. Midwives and birth partners love the width of the sides of BPIAB.
Mothers requested these strong handles on the outside of the pool (2 sets, uniquely positioned) for use when leaning over the side. They are angled at 30 degrees for maximum comfort.
Some mothers wanted to be cosseted while others wanted space, so we made the pool narrower at one end and wider at the other. The seat in the narrower end with the top handles is a very popular place for women to sit in between contractions.
Mothers unanimously agreed that the opaque external wall of the birthing pool increased their sense of privacy. We know that the release of oxytocin is a key factor to a successful labour and women who feel safe and private release more oxytocin.
This is safer than a single chamber in the event of an accidental puncture in the pool walls. Three chambers also allows for the adjustable height feature.
Edel Immersys Birth Pool in a Box is designed to be easy for you to install and you won’t need to make any changes to your home.
Hot and cold supply with a maximum blended temperature of 122°F. Higher pressure will give a lower filling time. Consider the distance from the faucet to the pool when choosing the correct hose length
Manual or electric. Compressors are not recommended or required
Floor needs to be level with no hard edges and swept or vacuumed. Rug under pool reduces heat loss into a concrete floor.
