My midwife called me today to tell me that the liner I ordered with my birthing kit is the wrong one, it's too small for the pool they lent me. Problem is, im 39w3d! Im eager to give birth, but I was really looking forward to laboring in water, it helped so much last time! I have a small bathtub, it's better than nothing, but im going to try and get a new liner in case baby takes her time. Who knows, i might still have 2 weeks!
Does anybody know of a website where i can order a liner that would have express shipping? Im still waiting to hear back from my midwife about what model i need, but i think I need the regular La Bassine (the one they sent me is the mini La Bassine)
I know the people at www.preciousarrows.com. The owner is a homebirthing mom so I think she would try to accommodate you as best as she could!

My midwife suggested picking up a plastic drop cloth such as you'd use if you were painting. She has had success with clients using that as a liner. She mentioned that it needs to be taped to keep it in place. So that's what I'm going to do.
