Deposit: If booking in advance, a non-refundable £50 deposit is required to reserve your pool. The balance of the full hire fee should be paid three weeks before your hire. Last minute hires must be paid in full at the time of booking.
Damage Retainer deposit: a separate £50 deposit is payable with all hires which is returnable when everything is received back and checked to be in good condition. We prefer a separate cheque for this.
Payment: cheques should be made out to Blue Lagoon Birth Pools and sent with your completed application form (which you can print off from our site or email to request one with a brochure).
Transportation: Blue Lagoon has two bases – one in the Northwest in Skelmersdale in Lancashire (near Liverpool and Manchester), and the other in East Anglia in Rendlesham in Suffolk (near Woodbridge and Ipswich).
Since the equipment is designed to fit any standard car, you may choose to transport the birth pool yourself using one of our collection bases in Lancashire or Suffolk. This is a good option as we can answer any last minute questions while demonstrating how the pool fits together, and so on.
If you cannot collect & return the equipment yourself, your Blue Lagoon birth pool can be delivered to you anywhere in the country by carrier for next day delivery (week days only). Currently a standard charge of £40.00 each way is payable for this service.
Sometimes we transport the equipment ourselves (usually if you live within approximately 50 miles of one of our bases). The cost is the same - £40 each way.
When to hire your pool
Hire is recommended to begin 2 weeks before your due date. We can sometimes let you have your pool a little early if it is available, at no extra charge
Based on many years experience, we have tailored our birth pool hire package to make it as easy for you as we can.
Feedback over the years has shown us that once you get your pool, there is often a great sense of relief that “things are in place”.
Being able to automatically keep your birth pool for up to four weeks, means that should you have your baby around your due date, you have had time to get used to the pool and have some trial runs with it. After the birth, there is plenty of time to get your pool back to us by the end of the hire date, without any sense of pressure on timing.
PORTABLE BAPTISTRY: long weekend hire, minimum accessories, damage retainer deposit applies - £110 self-collection or plus transport within 50 mile radius, if required. CALL US FOR MORE DETAILS.
