Birth Pools for labour or Waterbirth...
For Doula clients, the birth pool is avaliable for waterbirth, or for use in labour as a coping tool. In the Edmonton area, birth pools can be used for labour at home births with a midwife, or at the Sturgeon Hospital or Lois Hole Hospital (with approval of your medical caregiver). Water births are an option for women who have midwifery care, and may occur at home or in hospitals with midwifery privldedges.
My pool is an La Bassine Made in Water inflatable pool. A single use liner is used for each client for hygenic purposes. There is an additional fee for the liner and hose, which are single use. It is portable and easily set up and taken down.
Non-doula clients wishing to rent the pool may also inquire about avalaibility and fees by email.
