|HeatherB||Thanks. I have had minor issues with it in the two births I've used it for, so I keep expecting it to have more. But, some may have been user error and some were fixed. I'll definitely need to inflate it in advance. I believe my MW has a newer BPIAB on hand now, so we'll have that for back up.|

Yes. Some midwifery practices even use the personal pool. It's very sturdy. If it's always been well-treated, there's no reason to think you couldn't use it again.

I bought a personal BPIAB about 6 years ago for my third home birth. My son was born in the pool, after which I loaned it to several friends. Two years ago, I used it again and my DD was born in it. Another friend has since used it, for a total of 7 babies born into it, all of course with individual liners for sanitation. I'm wondering how much more it will stand up for. Can I safely expect to use it again? Or will it be likely to fail?
Has anyone else had a non-professional BPIAB be used so many times? More? What is the real life expectancy of it?
