Why you need adapters for your water hose.

Adapters! These little items are a must if you want to have water in your water labor and birth!

 

The simple fact that your water hose is designed to attached to water sources ONLY outside of your home not inside. So, you must find the right adapter to access water inside your house.

The easiest location is your kitchen sink. We recommend using the “Y” adapter as well so that you can leave your water hose attached and still get water from your kitchen sink by opening and closing the valves on your “Y” adapter. The end cap goes on the pool end of your hose so you can set your hose outside of your pool and not worry about water draining from the hose onto your floors.

You can also use a shower adapter to access water from your shower pipe (the pipe coming from your wall that your shower head attaches to) for filling your pool but keep in mind that this water source is more complicated. You will need to remove your shower head and have the right tools to do this. You will also need plumbers tape and plumbers putty to put the shower head back on to not have leaks.

 

Blessings in birth,

Selecting the right Shipping Option

Your Water Birth is proud to announce that nearly 90% of all our orders receive upgraded shipping at no additional cost if you select USPS Standard Shipping – the cheapest listed shipping options at checkout.

If you order a pool liner and select the cheapest option for shipping – USPS Standard Parcel Shipping – your package will automatically be upgraded to USPS Priority Mail at no additional cost. Your package will arrive days sooner and you will save money! Two things that matter a lot.

If you are ordering larger items like a birthing supplies or a kit or a waterbirth pool selecting USPS Standard Parcel Shipping, again, the cheapest shipping option listed in our checkout process, it will likely be upgraded to UPS Ground at no additional cost to you and arrive sooner.

There are some exceptions. Our customers who have orders shipping to Alaska, Hawaii or Puerto Rico and other US Common Wealth locations will still receive upgrades for single pool liners orders from USPS Standard Parcel Shipping to USPS Priority Mail but larger orders will not be changed and shipping times will be long.

For US customers living in Alaska, Hawaii, Puerto Rico and other US Common Wealth locations should always select USPS Priority Mail shipping to receive orders in a timely manner.

Your Water Birth also takes tremendous pride in the fact that 90% of our shipping boxes and packing material is recycled directly from our own warehouse. We do all we can to minimize our environmental footprint. We feel it is ethically irresponsible to purchase new shipping boxes to simply provide a “prettier” package to our customers. Plus, we believe that the majority of our customers are of the recycle mindset and would greatly appreciate our policy of reuse and recycle.

Blessings in birth,

Professional Aquaborn Pools

We thought we should let you know that the Professional and the Semi-Pro Aquaborn Pools will not be available on our site or in the US until further notice. We were told by the US Distributor that the product is being pulled from the US market while they work on improving quality.

We still have available our most popular Pro grade inflatable birth pool – the PRO La Bassine. This pool outsells both the mini and the regular Birth Pool in a Box pools and the past Pro Aquaborn pool.

This pool is strong and dependable and much lighter then the Birth Pool in a Box pools.

Aquaborn Birth Pool Liners

I am getting lots of questions about the two Aquaborn Liners available.

The photo to the far left is the Regular Aquaborn Liner. This liner can be used with or without the blue cover shroud (pictured in the closest photo to the left.  To use this liner you place the blue shroud on the floor below the inflated pool. Put the Regular Aquaborn Liner on the pool, lining up the top handle slots. Then pull the blue shroud up and over the two handles and into place.

The Aquaborn Zip-in Liner is shown in the closest photo to the left. This liner is put on the pool after you have the blue shroud in place. It easily zips into place.

The Aquaborn blue shroud is a great way to protect your Aquaborn pool from abrasions and it also helps to hold in more heat. We sell the blue shroud separately and it can be used on both the Pro and Regular models of the Aquaborn pool.

If you want to save money, purchase our Eco Generic Pool Liner. This liner fits all our inflatable pools and will save you money.  Keep in mind though, that the Eco Generic Pool Liner is not a molded, form fitted liner.

Cold Weather and Your Birth Pool

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!

Happy birthing,

Debra
