Good question Jo, I believe every birthing pool should have a ceiling track above it. Its the only way to get the mother out of either she or the baby are in trouble safely. It is also documented on page 273 of the guidelines ‘birthing pools need ceiling tracking above for handling and emergency evacuations’. Ive yet to see one but should an emergency happen the precedent has been set by the guidelines.
