Hello BLOG followers. I apologize for not regularly posting to this blog and promise to do so this year.
Well, cold weather is still upon us and it is critical to protect your inflatable water labor and birth pool from cold temperatures. Do everything you can to keep your pool, even it its shipping box, at 50 degrees or higher. Colder temperatures will make your pool material stiff and possibly brittle which can lead to cracks and holes. This, of course, means you will not have a working pool.
Pay close attention to your shipping notice to know when your pool will be arriving and bring it indoors immediately to prevent it from sitting in the cold outdoor temperatures any longer than necessary.
Be sure to leave your pool IN THE SHIPPING box for at least two days before removing it. It is a good idea to give it one to two days more still folded to warm even further. DO NOT UNFOLD YOUR POOL IF IT FEELS COLD AND STIFF! This unfolding can cause cracks in stiff, cold pool material.
Stay warm and lets all think spring!
