Home birth & birth pool hire
Why have a home birth?
It increases your oxytocin (the love hormone) levels and helps you to stay relaxed
You can feel settled and in charge from the very beginning
Intervention rates are lower for home births
There is less chance of developing an infection
You can prepare your birth space and atmosphere
You can invite whoever you like to be with you during labour
You can cuddle up in your own bed with your newborn
You will have a midwife with you during labour and a second one will be there for your baby's arrival
This video has been created by Better Births Lincolnshire and United Lincolnshire Hospitals Trust to show what it can be like to give birth to your baby at home.
Thank you to Naomi for sharing the birth of her baby with us!
Birth pool hire
You can hire a birthing pool for your home birth from The Birth Partnership.
MAC Farm Estate
Old Sleaford Road
Speak with your midwife and ask them to make a referral by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
You will be contacted to confirm your referral and to arrange for the £25 payment to be made.
Your pool will be delivered to you when you are around 36 weeks pregnant so you can familiarise yourself with it before birth.
When you have finished with the pool you can arrange to have it collected online at www.thebirthpartnership.co.uk.
Please note: You are responsible for all equipment during the hire period.
Any damage will be chargeable at cost. We reserve the right to replace the pool style according to demand.
