BPIAB Professional Pool

Designed in consultation with midwives and mothers

Edel Immersys has developed Birth Pool in a Box, a portable birth pool system which is designed and manufactured at the highest standards for birth centres and hospitals.

Both our inflatable pool and custom-fit disposable liner have been continuously improved as a robust and resilient integrated system, in consultation with mother and midwives since its introduction in 2006. The system’s recognised quality and reliability, back up by our industry-leading support and liability insurance, which enables you to confidently choose, recommend and provide a Birth Pool in a box for use in wherever your client chooses to give birth.

Cost-effective and simple to install, Birth Pool in a Box is the most practical, dependable and convenient portable birth pool system available.

Pool Features

Birth pool in a Box pool and liner is an integrated system. Out 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 over the handles which stops and contaminated water from seeping 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 Pro liner. This is essential for infection control, peace of mind and comfort. And it also maintains the warranty that gives you assurance and support when you need it. Generic liners should never be used with Birth Pool in a Box.

Clear inside wall

Mothers like the perception of larger space created by having a clear inner wall

Space for partner

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.

White floor

We believe in taking advice from professionals and Midwives requested a white floor to enhance visibility in the birthing pool.

Internal seat

Mothers requested a comfortable place to sit while they bonded with their newborn baby in the pool.

Adjustable height

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.

Double-reinforced top handles

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.

Soft floor chamber

Mothers wanted comfort on the birth pool floor. All our pools have a continuous inflated floor.

No drain plug

Midwives and mothers agreed that a drain plug was an unnecessary weak link in a birthing pool.

Choice of two sizes

Some families have limited room space, some wanted their partners to join them ans some wanted as much freedom as possible in the pool. So we made the Birth Pool in a Box in Regular and Mini sizes.

Cup holder

To ensure that laboring women are able to keep hydrated without having to ask for a drink, we have added a cup holder to our pool.

No rough edges

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.

No internal handles

Midwives and mothers agree that internal handles in the pool might obstruct full movement and prevent effective use of a liner.

Plain blue rim

Mothers said they wanted a clear space to rest their heads with no distracting text or images or manufacturers logos.

Tested for quality, durability and stability

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.

Double-reinforced handles

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.

Opaque external wall

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.

Three separate chambers

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.

Installation Process

The Edel Immersys Birth Pool in a Box is designed to be easy for your organisation or contractors to specify and install and does not require any infrastructure investment.

  • Water Supply

    Water Supply

    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

  • Air Pump

    Air Pump

    Manual or electric. Compressors are not recommended or required

  • Level Floor

    Level Floor

    Floor needs to be level with no hard edges and swept or vacuumed. Rug under pool reduces heat loss into a concrete floor.

  • Waste water handling
