There are lots of options for mamas who want to use water during labor while at home. Some women buy or rent birth tubs (with removable lining) made specifically for birthing. The most affordable options, which is very popular, is to buy a child’s blow up swimming pool. They tend to be 3 or 4 feet across, with about 1 foot of height. Tubs work, too! Laboring in water/tub is an option in many hospitals as long as certain conditions are met.
