Last time, I birthed at a freestanding birthing center so the birth pool choice was made for me since they had a plumbed and installed jacuzzi-style pool (which I am in LOVE with... I swear, when we finally buy a house we're installing one!). This time, I'm birthing at home and am having *intense* stress about picking a birth pool... the whole depth v. cost v. handles v. water heater capacity v. whatever else business is really freaking me out. Right now, I'm tending toward either La Bassine or the Birth Pool In A Box... but I think it would really help if I could hear how other people have thought through the decision. Please, tell me how you worked it out!
