About Barefoot Birth Pools

More and more families are discovering the joy of welcoming their babies to the world from the comforts of their own home. With three children of our own and a background in pregnancy and birth support work Barefoot Birth Pools pride ourselves on understanding the needs of families planning to hire a birth pool for their homebirth.

Our aims

Barefoot Birth Pools puts the health and safety of customers before all else, aiming to provide a secure and relaxing experience from the first point of contact. We hope to provide a clear and informative service ensuring our customers feel supported at every stage of the process of hiring and using our birth pools.

Our company

Barefoot Birth Pools operates as a Limited Company hiring birth pools to parents-to-be. We purchased Gentle Water in 2011 from the previous owner, Imogen Makepeace. Gentle Water and its sister shop, The Beautiful Birth Centre, were one of the longest established birth pool hire companies in the UK and had been hiring pools from the Brighton and Hove area since 1997.

Our team

Shona and her husband, Jez work together to provide all of the administration, cleaning and customer support for Barefoot Birth Pools along with some additional assistance from our little helpers, Maisy, Sonny and Meadow (don’t worry...this usually just involves sticking stamps on to envelopes and posting letters!). We are supported by a whole network of other small businesses including Fluid Studios, Calm Accounting, Kape Creative and Ken Girvan printers.
