Norfolk Birthing Pools

Birthing pool hire – for those mums-to-be who want to experience the birth of their child at home.


The relaxing effect of water, with its support and warmth, can help you through your labour. Being bathed in water could help you go with your contractions in active labour, so that they are less stressful for both you and your baby. Being relaxed also helps you to breathe calmly. It means you're less likely to take short, shallow breaths, which can make the pain of contractions worse.

Once you’re immersed in the warm waters of the pool, you're in your own world and can labour undisturbed. If the lights are dimmed and the room is quiet the effect will be heightened. It may help you to feel more in tune with your labour. Water buoys you up and makes you feel lighter. It's easier for you to move about, so you can make yourself comfortable. The best position for you is likely to be one that helps your baby move most easily through your pelvis and this is achievable when using a Birthing Pool

We understand that you will have plenty of things to think about in the run-up to your birth and we will endeavour to ensure a stress-free rental.
