We just had our waterbirth with our son four days ago. My husband picked up a backup heater for an aquarium for $24 from Walmart. Works up to 60+ gallons. It is electric (though they make battery operated) and we just kept it in the tub. I had a VERY long labor (48 hours total) and was in the tub multiple times over the course of the labor. We had to add a little warm water once because so much time had passed, but overall it worked fantastic. Our midwife is even thinking about suggesting it for other clients.
