Birth Pool in a Box is designed with safety, practicality, comfort and resilience in mind. We have external handles for the comfort of Mom during labor. We have chosen not to have internal handles which can get in the way of Mom finding comfortable positions. External handles also ensure that the baby can safely float to the surface without risking bumping into a handle. Our heat covers secure firmly onto the outside of the tub ensuring that nothing will slip under the cover and into the tub. We have tubs available for immediate shipment and designed with safety in mind.
