i had a shower with my son cos was in labour for so long but didnt want a waterbirth using the bath-dont know why so that made me want 1 for my daughter but was only in labour for 1 hour and she was born within 20min of getting to the birth centre so the waterbirth didnt happen.

I planned one for each kid but with my oldest daughter I had made the water to hot to safely have her in the tub. My second one ended up being a land birth too for other reasons. I had very long labors though, and even though neither baby ended up being born in the water using the tub for pain relief was well worth the $800 rental fee.
