The Professional Birth Pool in a Box model is designed for reuse by midwives, birth centers, hospitals and in other situations requiring a more durable tub that can withstand repeated use.
The .55mm heavy plastic material provides extra strength and protection over the personal version. This extra thickness on the bottom of the pool helps to prevent leaks and drips on the floor. The added thickness also offers a layer of padding on the bottom which makes it more comfortable for clients.
These tubs are designed for use with a disposable liner that provides a safe and sanitary method for reusing the tubs. Disposable liners are not only hygienic and may be required for meeting infection control standards. The professional pool does not include a liner.
The Birth Pool in a Box Professional pool is guaranteed for at least 40 set-ups and uses or 4 years of use with properly handling and the use of the Birth Pool in a Box custom liner during each use.

To ensure the highest quality water birth experience, Birth Pool in a Box recommends you order the Regular or Mini custom Birth Pool in a Box Liner.
