AquaDoula Birth Tub Rental

The AquaDoula is a portable heated tub designed specifically for labor and waterbirth. The tub is a wonderful tool to use for staying calm and relaxed in the privacy of your own home (or any birth location!). If you choose a waterbirth, being in water may encourage an easier childbirth for mother and a gentler welcome for baby.

Rental cost is a sliding scale of $225-$325 for the 4 week period.** Please pay what you can, considering where you fall on the scale of economic diversity of San Francisco. A $50 nonrefundable deposit is required to hold your reservation in the calendar. Full rental payment required at pickup. Pickup usually happens 2 weeks before due date and return of tub 2 weeks after your due date. Client is responsible for pick-up and return of tub to Community Well on 78 Ocean Ave. There is an additional charge for delivery/pick up service.

**Part of your payment helps to support Community Well, a welcoming center in San Francisco's Excelsior District for individuals, couples and growing families of all backgrounds to connect with holistic services supporting early parenthood and overall wellness that contribute to a better quality of life.
