    Weʼve raised £820 to buy new birth pools and pumps

    London Borough of Hackney, London, UK
    Funded on Thursday, 1st November 2018

    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.

    Story

    Update: We're continuing to fundraise for new pools as we regularly need to replace them. We appreciate any donation you can give. To buy one mini pool pool (+ one pump to inflate and one pump to remove the water) costs £175 + processing fees.

    ---------------------

    THANK YOU EVERYONE! We reached our target to buy three new pools and now we're fundraising for more.

    -----------------------

    We loan out birth pools for free to those in Hackney and the surrounding boroughs.

    Over the years we've helped hundreds of people have the home birth they dream of.

    "We had our baby girl in the early hours of yesterday, at home in the pool. It was an amazing birth, really brilliant and I absolutely loved using the pool. So comfy...! Thank you both so much."

    We have 12 pools in circulation and sometimes they spring a leak and need to be retired. Currently we have more requests for pools than we can accommodate.

    We have never asked for money before - we really appreciate your donation to help keep the free pool service running.

    "Thank you so much for the loan of the pool - it completely worked it's magic and made all the difference!"

    We will buy the new pools and pumps direct from Birth Pool in a Box who have given us a discounted rate. https://www.birthpoolinabox.co.uk/

    Birth Pool in a Box Pro pool £132 each including VAT, Submersible pumps and inflatable pumps, Shipping, 6.5% JustGiving fees = £584

    Thank you!
