Anyone using a rubbermaid tub/trough?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
We have a fishy pool we got from Target, but after watching a birth video of someone using the same pool, I don't think it's deep enough for the kind of belly submerging I want, lol. I know a lady who rents out a rubbermaid trough/tub type pool but I wanted to see if I could possibly buy a used one for less than I'd spend on renting it.

After looking them up I see there are several different sizes. What size is yours? 100 gallons? 150 gallons? Bigger? smaller?

thanks!

I used one last time, (I think Rubbermaid should use my birth pictures for a commercial!!!) just kidding! It was nice and deep and Im not a small mama, I have supported 3 other births in it too, and the mamas all liked it, you can use a towel or a bath pillow to sit on if its too hard, but I like the hard fiberglass to push against and it not give. Deep is important! to get the physiologic change in your body (lower bp, ect) you must be chest deep/buyount in the water. I will try to find a pic and some more info on it, Waterbirth international is the mother sight for info on water birth.
