Are you pregnant

and thinking of a home birth?

Have you thought about using water to support your childbirth?

Here are a few reasons why you might consider it - but do browse through the whole website...

  • Effortless freedom of mobility
  • Soothing, private, warm, comforting environment
  • A BlueLagoon pool offers an attractive rigid outer construction providing a strong structure to brace yourself against in a variety of creative positions during labour and birth (something which is not possible with a 'blow-up' pool)
  • The buoyancy of the water ensures great comfort as you relax between contractions
  • Properly insulated for excellent heat retention - still warm hours after filling
  • Feedback from mothers and midwives over the past 17 years has shown us that these pools are considered far superior to any soft structured pools Go to 'Testimonials' to read about it
  • All necessary accessories included in a straightforward hire package of only £195 for up to 4 week's hire (see 'Hire Costs and Details' for more information)

Midwives like our pools...

Midwives are enthusiastic about our design.

'We can lean in when necessary without fear of getting drenched, as with soft walled pools. Women can brace themselves against the walls if they feel like it because these pools are designed for their purpose and offer security and reliability for users and carers.'


Create an ideal environment for labouring and birthing at home with soft lighting, a supportive birth partner and the comforting use of a Blue Lagoon Birth Pool

She enjoys meeting those who hire pools and all those who come on the Water Birth Workshops seeking confidence in this birth option.

'If applicable, we always try to put you in the right direction for answers to your questions about using water for childbirth. Why not check out our 'Why Water?' page for some general information about this birth option'. Annie

A natural birth in a Blue Lagoon birth pool

'The pool has been amazing, thank you!  

Our beautiful baby was born in the pool

(10 days overdue and just time to have her

at home in the pool as our hospital don't

allow home birth past 10 days over)

and it was an amazing experience.

 I could not believe how much the water

helped me, I even fell asleep in the pool

in between contractions.  

Everything was so natural and instinctive

and went without a hitch'. JB
