Hi. I just put a deposit down on an aquadoula birth tub for my HB in June...I do have a bathtub that is standard size and fairly deep (about the depth of a claw foot tub) and as I was soaking in it last night I asked myself "do I really NEED to spend $250 on a birth tub rental?!".... that is the first issue and the second issue is that I live in an apartment and my nesting brain no longer wants a big tub "in the way." I just started having these feelings and if I am going to cancel I better do it now so I can get my deposit back... so that said, what are your experiences laobring in a standard bath tub versus something like an aquadoula? I don't plan to have the baby IN the water, I just want to use the water to help with labor pain...for those who used your bathtub, do you wish you had a birth tub? And for those that used birth tubs, would it have been equally fine to just use your bath tub? Thanks!
