Information about home birth using a birth pool.

I wrote this article not so much to decide to have a home birth, but what you need to consider when you've made the decision to labour at home. Information about home birth using a birth pool by Sarah Buchanan, including a section about Birth Pool in a Box and the Made in Water birth pool.


I'm at the Abergavenny Baby and Toddler show today - 10am to 4pm, Abergavenny Leisure Centre.

Please come along if you want to find about about HypnoBirthing and how it can help you experience a calm and controlled labour.


What should we be talking about? Survey

If you have given birth recently within the Aneurin Bevan University Health Board Maternity Services area, please complete this brief survey and let us know how your experience was. Thank you. The MSLC is the group that listens to what women and their families want from maternity services. We are about to decide what to focus on over the next year and we want to know what you think.

The Maternity Services Liaison Committee (MSLC)

We want to hear from you!

The Maternity Services Liaison Committee (MSLC) is a group where you can meet with other mothers and fathers, midwives, managers and doctors who work together to i...mprove maternity care.

This is a place where you have a voice. Your opinion is important and we do listen.

What does the MSLC do?
The MSLC listens to the experiences of women and their partners and uses their stories to shape maternity services. For example, lots of women who gave birth at the Royal Gwent Hospital told us they would have liked to have used a birth pool during labour or to give birth, but the hospital didn't have one. As a result, a pool has recently opened on ward B5 and women can now use the birth pool if they want to.

Want to get involved? contact us by email at [email protected] or you can send us a private message.
