As manufacturers of La Bassine birth pools, we are committed to fast, friendly and efficient customer service. We offer only the highest quality products – at the best possible prices, giving our customers an incredible value.

Our pools are used and recommended by hospitals, midwives and doulas. We combine style and comfort, with optimum practicality.

All La Bassine birth pools are inflated at our factory and left for a minimum of 48 hours, to ensure reliability.

We use eco-friendly heavy duty 0.45mm material for our regular pool and 0.60mm for our professional pool.  There are no other birth pools on the market which use stronger materials than ours.

Every  birth pool comes with a heat-retaining pool cover- at no extra cost!

Regular or Professional Grade

Home Birth Pool by La Bassine, UK

We are proud, that our original La Bassine birth pool, designed by a mum, more than 10 years ago, has sold tens of thousands and is the best selling birthing pool in the world.

It is manufactured from extra heavy duty material.  0.45mm for our regular pool and 0.60 for our professional birth pool.  OUR MATERIALS ARE THE STRONGEST YOU CAN BUY.

They contain no phthalates, lead, cadmium or any other harmful products.

The side of our pool is transparent, allowing clear visibility for midwives.

There are two perfectly placed handles on the inside, to grab onto when you push, or to assist in position changes.

A deep, inflated floor ensures maximum comfort, whether sitting or kneeling.

Due to the unique I beam construction, the walls of the pool are very rigid, which also helps to keep the pool’s shape in the event of a puncture, thus preventing water from leaking on to the floor.

  • La Bassine Birth Pool sides and bottom were nice and soft but firm and it was plenty big enough for me to move about freely but it wasn't a gigantic pool taking up all the space in my living room either.

  • Midwife loaned us the LaBassine birth pool. It was comfy, roomy and kept its heat very well. Filled it up around 10am and when I gave birth in water at 1pm, water was still nice and warm.

  • Perfect pool for home birth.. La Bassine birth pool is far sturdier than its competitors and there was no leaking or slopping out the sides. The midwives were really impressed with its design. Really hope I get to use it again during the birth of number 3!

  • A must for your home birth.  La Bassine pool was brilliant for my home birth and there’s no way I could have managed without it. The pool inflates in a matter of minutes.  The bottom of the pool inflates too. I was so comfortable.
