“The only inflatable birthing pool I wholeheartedly recommend.”

“I liked the size, number of handles, the inflatable bottom, the seat, the MyAnchor. Also many other mums on online forums recommend this model as being easy to set up and dismantle”
“Since using the ‘Birth Pool in a Box’, our pool birth rate has drastically increased from an average of 8 women using the pool per month to an average of 67. It is also thought to have reduced our rate of perineal trauma but we are still collecting the statistics for this.
The pools have increased women’s satisfaction with their birth experience, our family and friends questionnaires demonstartes this. From experience working on the unit, we know that it is encouraging buoyancy and more active birth positions.
We have been using the ‘Birth Pool in a Box’ since the opening of our birth centre in January. They provide a lovely focal point for our rooms, encouraging as many women to use the pool as possible. Women enjoy the space as the pools are very large. The desifn of the pools also makes them easy to use.
The cup holder encourages women to stay hydrated. The individual liners and hoses are hygenic and the pools are simple to fill and drain. Temperatures can be maintained as required according to local guidelines.
The ‘Birth Pool in a Box’ is relatively inexpensive and therefore we have the luxury of a pool in all of our sanctuary rooms, meeting more women’s expectations of having pool labours and births.”

“While pregnant with my second child my partner and I researched our options and we decided we really wanted a home birth. I was lucky enough to be gifted an unused new Birth Pool in a Box Regular Pool from a friend, however there were still some items I needed to purchase. I contacted the Customer Care team at Edel Immersys (The Good Birth Company) and spoke with a very helpful person about everything I would need to help make my birth a success. They were so incredibly helpful, I ordered the items I needed, a new liner, a new hose and a kit for filling and emptying the Birth Pool in a Box, and they were sent out the same day and delivered the next day. The person I spoke explained exactly what I needed and how to use them. They also helped my by explaining how to empty the pool once I’d finished using it and made the whole experience so easy. It certainly was one less thing to worry about! The Birth Pool in a Box itself was easy to blow up, extremely comfortable and sturdy and a very good size even though it was the smaller (mini) version. My labor and birth was everything I hoped for and being in the Birth Pool made me feel safe and so comfortable; the floor was wonderfully padded. I particularly liked the sides being opaque on the outside because it gave me the privacy I wanted.
My baby girl Ava was born into a calm beautiful environment with my partner there to welcome his daughter and my son Lucas could meet his baby sister without having to leave the home. Thank you so much to the team at Edel Immersys for all your help and making my birth the perfect, relaxed experience I always wanted!”
