Birthing Pools

Definition : Pools or tubs designed to be filled with water and used by pregnant women during labor and delivery. The pools are designed to have enough room for a laboring woman to move around in and give birth. These pools are usually mobile; the mobile pools are either inflatable (made of vinyl or other soft plastics) or are molded hard plastic tubs on wheels. Stationary birthing pools made of molded hard plastics are also available. These birthing pools can sometimes be attached to the facility's plumbing but most are filled from a separate water source (e.g., hose, faucet). Birthing pools sometimes have lower edges or side doors where health care personnel or others can easily access the laboring woman. Some of the pools can be lowered and raised to make entering and exiting the pool easier. These pools are used in hospitals, birthing centers, and at home.
