Jamie - September 2022

Fabulous service from start to finish! We were worried and sceptical about renting a pool, and being able to assemble and fill it ourselves, however everything comes highly organised and Caz takes the time to come to your home and walk you through everything beforehand. It was really easy!

M - September 2022

Excellent service. Took all the stress away of home birth by providing a detailed walk through of equipment and how to use it. Which one must say is very good in itself. Highly recommended.

Hayley - July 2022

Highly recommended! Caz was amazing from start to finish, gave lots of information and good details which lead to an easy set up. She came and picked all equipment back up promptly and was such a nice lady. my experience of a home birth was the best from start to finish and this was down to the help of Caz. I would 100% recommend it to everyone thinking of doing it!

Fantastic birth pool service. I initially looked into a ‘national’ hire company but I’m so glad I found Caz and her much more local service in Bradford. She dropped off the pool and all the necessary kit and spent the time in person to explain everything and answer any questions. She also provided detailed written instructions for a reminder on the day. This made me feel so much more prepared and comfortable. We hired a mini pool which was more than big enough for me. It played a huge part in my perfect home birth and I’m so glad we chose to hire through Starfish Doula. After the birth Caz collected the pool promptly. I would definitely recommend her service to anyone planning a home birth in the Bradford area.

starfish doula was amazing from start to finnish. I suffered with spd and was told that a birthing pool would help labour majorly. starfish doula fit us in with just days notice. and then came to explain what needed to be done from start to finnish and explained it all in great detail. if I ever got pregnant again I would definitely hire again from her. absolutely amazing service thankyou. made my whole homebirthing experience a total game changer x x


Raisha - December 2021

One of the friendliest, most informative women I’ve ever met! She was an absolute pleasure to deal with even though I ended up having to go to hospital and didn’t use the equipment. She explained it all so clearly and instilled confidence in my regarding the whole process. Would definitely consider using her as a full time doula for future pregnancies if money was better as she truly is a fountain of knowledge and such a supportive woman. Was a pleasure to meet her and would recommend any one to use her and her services!

Rebecca - October 2021

I contacted Starfish Doula quite late in my pregnancy around 30 weeks, and I received a reply straight away reassuring me that a pool would be sourced. I hired a mini pool which was plenty big enough for me, it filled the centre of the living room with space to walk around. The kit was brilliant, and the delivery along with a thorough explanation of how to use was also brilliant. Offering a prompt pick up if the pool after use was also a blessing. Personally, the pool made my homebirth. I was starting to really struggle and as soon as I entered the pool I felt weightless and able to properly relax between contractions. Thankyou so much for offering this amazing thing around Bradford! Should I choose to have another baby, I will definitely be in touch.

Vicky - October 2021

We hired a birthing pool. Starfish Doula was great and could fit us in a short notice, she explained everything and included a lot of extras to help with the birth. Also collected quickly, great service 😀

Rebecca - September 2021

We hired our birth pool from Caz which was very reasonably priced and she was amazing from start to finish. When enquiring she replied very swiftly and gave us all the information we needed. She came and delivered the birth pool at 37 weeks and explained how everything worked and was extremely friendly. The birth pool came with everything we would need along with very clear instructions and we also got a free cord tie for our little one. We had the perfect home birth where we welcomed a very healthy 10lb 2 baby boy. I contacted Caz the day after and she came and collected the pool a few days later. She was so thrilled for us that we had achieved our perfect home birth and we couldn’t be happier with the service she provided. Thank you so much Caz.

Zoe - September 2021

I used Starfish Doula to hire a birthing pool and tens machine. The service was amazing from start to finish. Caz came to our home to drop off the pool and spent close to an hour talking us through it all and answering all our endless questions. This service was invaluable as other services are typically delivered by DPD style drivers and you’re left to fend for yourself! After the birth (in which I used the pool!), we had a question regarding an item we were unsure if we needed to return after the birth or not, so we were able to call Caz and find out. The availability of Caz to answer questions and the personalised service took so much stress out of the process. The pool was picked up the next day at our request, which meant we had our house back to normal as soon as possible! All the equipment was absolutely first class. Would hire again if the need ever arises!

Fern - August 2021

So helpful, friendly and supportive, couldn't ask for a better service. Would definitely reccomend to others.

Avola - June 2021

Fantastic! We had everything we needed for our home birth and Caz was super helpful.

Tom - April 2021

Used this service for the birth of our first baby. Caz was very helpful with showing how to set up the pool and even with the little gifts we received. I would recommend anyone who is having an home birth to use this service. Thank you again for everything you did for us.

Alexandra - March 2021

Fantastic service. This was our second birth after a poor first birth in hospital i wanted a homebirth. Caz was great, explained everything we needed to know for putting up the pool and how to use the tens machine. Would recommend using the tens machine, it was a great help!

Tina - January 2021

I would 100% recommend starfish doula for pool & TENS hire. Both helped me have the homebirth I wanted. Really good service from Caz and super prompt collection once we told her we had finished with it. Loved the free cord tie, so much more pleasant than having a big plastic cord clamp digging in her tummy.


Stacey - November 2020

Fantastic experience from Starfish Doula with the hire of my mini birthing pool for my home birth. Lovely lady who runs the company, gave me lots of useful information about everything and brilliant clear instructions come included with the pool and accessories about using the pool for before during and after use. Absolutely everything included that’s needed for using a birth pool. Very speedy delivery and collection too. Would definitely highly recommend. Thank you so much.

Rachael - January 2020

Efficient and good value service. Really friendly. Loved my TENS machine and pool. Will recommend to others.
