"Birth is not only about making babies. Birth is about making mothers;
strong, competent, capable mothers who trust themselves and know
inner strength."

Barbara Katz Rothman

Congratulations on your pregnancy!

Having your baby at home in water is a great choice. Using a birth pool can lead to a more comfortable experience, less need for other methods of pain relief and a shorter labour with an increased likelihood of achieving a natural birth.

Staying home to have your baby means you’re in familiar surroundings and there’s no interruption to your labour in order to make the journey to hospital.

Stroud Birth Pools is part of Stroud Maternity Matters, a volunteer run organisation who circulate six ‘Birth Pool in a Box’ birth pools for the benefit of the local community for FREE!


“I cannot recommend enough the use of the pool during labour. The sense of buoyancy the weightlessness and warmth of the water helps immensely with contractions and gives the opportunity to relax and retreat in between the surges” - Klaudia
