We are renting the aquadoula from our midwife, its the only one she offers. DH set it up tonight and its really tall for me, like if I am sitting i cant really reach the sides, theyre at my head. If i am on my knees kneeling I cant really reach my arms over the side or to lay my head over the side. We were thinking of maybe using a stool inside? maybe something wooden. I know the plastic rubbermaid type ones would probably float and be annoying if I am not sitting on it or leaning on it? I dont think folded up towels would be tall enough or we would need many of them...Any other ideas? Any short mama's that used the aquadoula? i probably should ahve thought of just getting a fishy pool or something, but this seemed like the best bet since the midwife will drain it and take it away and it has the heater on it and lots of room and i like the color,seems calm and not distracting..
