Rental Period

Birth pools are rented from the end of 37 weeks of pregnancy until 5 days after your baby’s birth.  A $50 non-refundable reservation deposit is required at the time of booking to reserve your birth pool rental date.  Full payment of your birth pool and accessories kit rental is required before pickup or delivery can be arranged. We accept payment by e-transfer, cheque, or cash.

You, the renter, are responsible for calling to arrange for pick up or return of the pool and the birth pool accessories kit once your baby has been born.  If you fail to call to arrange the return of the pool and accessories kit, you will be charged $50 for each additional week you keep the pool in your possession following birth.

Refunds

Short rental: There will be no refund in fees if the birth pool and accessories kit is used and brought back within a short amount of time.

Birth Pool and accessories kit NOT USED: Refunds will NOT be issued for any circumstances beyond our control (eg. complications of pregnancy requiring a transfer of care, birth went too quickly to set up and use pool, health care practitioner did not allow use of the birth pool, etc.)

Birth Pool not received before birth: The rental fee is non-refundable with the only exception that the baby is born BEFORE you have received the birth pool and accessories kit.  If this happens, please let us know as soon as possible so that we can cancel your rental and return your rental fee minus the $50 non-refundable reservation deposit.
