What services &/or products are offered by your company?
Birthing pool rentals and sales.
Tell me how you got into this line of work?
We rented birth pools for the births of our sons in 2011 and 2012. Both times, there were pieces that we had to find ourselves - my husband ended up going to Home Depot twice while I was in labor with our youngest.
Midwife and doula friends talked about what a challenge birth pools were for them, and encouraged me to start a business where every single thing was provided that families needed to make the birth pools work...so I did!
How does your business differ from your competitors?
We provide not just the pool, but all of the accessories (including towels!) and we ship all over the United States.
We're also authorized distributors of both La Bassine and Birth Pool in a Box for all of their products if you need to purchase pools and accessories.
You're a new addition to the crayon box, what color would you be and why?
I'd be the clear blue color of the water in Belize - it's my husband's and my favorite place to scuba dive.
If you were on an island and could only bring three things, what would you bring?
Mask, snorkel, and fins. If I'm going to be stuck on an island, I'm going to spend every day in the water!
What three things do you need to be successful in this business?
Strong arms, a box cutter, and a big vision. Lots of heavy lifting, lots of opening boxes, and lots of ideas to make this business grow.
What goals do you have for the future of your business?
We have a map in our office of all of the states where we've shipped pools - I want the whole thing colored in!
How do you prefer clients/customers contact you?
Email, phone, text - whatever works best for them!
