Enhance your birthing experience with a birthing pool:
- soothes labour pains
- allows for a water birth option
- easy to use and operate
The increase in women choosing to birth in water has meant that finding a birth pool can sometimes be difficult. As a result the Association has two birth pools and pumps, which women are able to hire.
You can hire your birthing pool from the Canterbury Homebirth Association at only:
- $90 for Professional Members (includes liner)
- $120 for non-members (includes liner and you will be subscribed automatically to our e-newsletter)
- $35 for pool liner only (plus postage if required)
We can supply birth pool liners separately for $35. The liners are a rectangle shape which is 2340 mm (wide/opening) x 2200 mm (long/deep). They are made for the common hexagon shaped pools with the PVC pipe framework but they will fit any pool with an external circumference up to 4680 mm. Please contact us to order a liner.
To make a booking, please complete our online booking form. Once you have submitted your form, we will be in touch to confirm whether the pool is available. If you have not received a reply within a couple of days please check your junk mail folder for an email from Janet who is our pool hire coordinator.
