Birth Pools & Supplies
Passages pools are designed by a Canadian midwife, who has supported women through thousands of waterbirths. She has seen the benefits of birthing in water: the increased comfort of the mother, and the gentle entrance of the newborn into their new world.

- Durable: each pool is made with ultra-durable eco-vinyl.

- Each pool measures approx. 58″ across and 24″ high.
