My midwife will supply the birthing pool. We asked her about draining it. She said we could drain it out a nearby window, which is our front yard. We are in a pretty rural area but... My DH is grossed out by this. He imagines our dogs getting in it etc. To me it for sure sounds better than the kitchen sink and I also wonder about stopping up the bathtub drain or something. Just how nasty will the water be? What do you all think?
