Designed by People who know

The Aquaborn Eco Birth Pool has been designed with needs of the expectant mother, baby and midwife in mind. It’s the strongest inflatable birth pool available for home use.

A Little Deeper!

To achieve buoyancy in water and allow easy movement between positions, 21″ of water depth is required. We know you will want to move around and assume positions which bring your body out of the water. To aid this we have made the Aquaborn Eco Birth Pool a little deeper so that your waist can stay in the water even when you want to lean over the pool. This is perfect for a birth position where it is important to keep your pelvis in the water.

The six handles provide assistance in ALL birth Positions

The Aquaborn Eco Birth Pool has six handles that are optimally placed to assist in all birth positons. The two on top allow backward leaning, squatting and pushing positions while allowing the midwife to get closer to the expectant mother if needed. The two on the sides provide assistance in forward leaning and bracing. The two internal handles provide assistance in moving from one position to another, reclining and forward leaning.

The vertical anti-deflate beams

Birth Pool’s have unique beams that will deflate very slowly and equally, in the unlikely event of a puncture. This gives the birther plenty of time to exit the pool safely and the water to be removed before any spillage occurs.

The top deflation ring

The top ring is inflated and deflated in seconds to allow easier access to the pool if required.

The Strongest Inflatable Birth Pools

The Aquaborn and La Bassine Professional has been tested alongside some other brands of inflatable birth pools for strength, resilience and functional use, and the Aquaborn Eco Birth Pool wins hands down with La Bassine coming in close as well. The walls are strong enough to support both you and your partner, and the the unique placement of handles and extra comfort means this is the most diverse pool available for water birth.
