So...we're planning a home birth in our own bath tub. We've never used it but I have cleaned it a few times with disinfectant and wipes. (It gets dusty)
My question is, have any of you had or attempted a water birth before? Did you do it in your bath tub or one of the air ones? What do I need to do to make sure my bathtub is sterile...and...I'm also starting to wonder if I might be more comfortable in the air tub...but I really don't want to spend the money to buy one or rent one. My concerns about my bathtub is how hard it is and shallow. It is the big oval garden tub and it has a built in seat...But i don't think it's going to be very deep.
Any thoughts or suggestions?
