  1. Joanna says:

    The water birth was fantastic and after a labour of only 2hr 45 mins our son was born into the pool and, best of all, I was able to deliver him myself which was a very magical experience for me.

  2. Grahams & Adreena says:

    Birth went swimmingly! Adreena parked herself in the pool and did not need any pain relief for several hours… in fact she was too relaxed and we had to get her to take a walk down the road to get things moving!

    A liitle girl (number 2) popped out a couple of hours later, Mother and baby stayed in the pool for about 15 minutes afterwards.
    So yes, pool very helpful to the home birth, just what Adreena wanted after bad experience in a hospital with our first child. Can’t think of any improvements.

  3. Tim, Ruth, Anwyn and Thomas says:

    I thought I should let you know that our son, Thomas Samuel, was born at home in one of your pools at 17:45 on Sunday 6th March, weighing a very unexpected 10lb 3oz. Ruth spent 8 hours in the pool, which helped her labour immensely, and she delivered underwater. It was a completely different experience from the hospitalised one we had with our first child!

  4. Rachel, Swindon says:

    The pool was my sanctuary, I felt warm, safe and in control which was how I wanted it.

  5. Dawn says:

    I was delighted with my birthing pool!
    When I first saw it I actually thought it was a little bit on the small size, but when it came to the real thing and using it, it was perfect (I am 5ft 4 and any bigger would probably have been too big!) I had an excellent birth (number 3). After 2 fairly traumatic births in hospital I did a Hypnobirthing course as I couldn’t face it again. This gave me the confidence to have a go at having baby number 3 (Lowena Mae, born 7th September at 8.02pm) at home and in a birthing pool was my ideal, as I hadn’t managed to use the birthing pool at the hospital on either of the other occasions.
    It all went to plan, and the pool really helped, I had no other pain relief other than my husband talking to me using the Hypnobirthing techniques to keep me relaxed, the wonderful warm water in the pool and pressing some acupressure points. And even better – no stitches this time!!! I also then had a natural third stage in the pool and stayed in there for about an hour after Lowena was born and breast fed her. Thank you so much!

    The storage bag is excellent and the position sheets that were included were also useful – altogether 10/10.

  6. Jim, Dublin says:

    The pool is amazing. Our midwife thinks it is the greatest thing she has seen in her many years delivering.

  7. Neil says:

    The pool arrived in time thanks a lot brill service. Will recommend your product and service.

  8. Lynn says:

    My daughter was born on the 2nd of September, at 6.05pm. She was born at home, into the pool, after a 3 hour labour.
    Labouring in the pool was wonderful, & enabled me to manage without pain relief. Also, when pushing, I found the water was a definate help. Having already given birth on ‘dry land’ I could feel a difference.

    Your service was wonderful, I appreciated the email to let me know when my pool was being delivered, i wanted to wait in for it, & it was good to know the day it was coming. It was dispatched very quickly, also.
    Many thanks for your part in a wonderful birth experience.
