Our birthing tub has arrived! We had a trial run to set up earlier this week. Took all of 15 minutes to inflate it, using the little electric fan. We’ll fill it up with a hose that runs from our kitchen sink; the hose can be used to fill it and drain it, which helps maintain the optimum temperature.
Of course, the front door will not be open when I am in labor. And I think we’re going to put the tub in the corner of the living room (in the photo above: where the black chair, guitar and banjo are in top right), rather than right smack in the middle.
After Bean is born in this tub, he/she will have their own special kiddie pool!
