Thinking of inflatable birth pool- what do you hold on to?

I gave birth in hospital pool last time and could easily put my arms on the sides and hold on. The round inflatable ones look slippery... how does that work?

hi, i havent had a water birth but some programmes i have seen have inflatable ones that have handles on. when i had ds2 i desperately needed something to grip onto, felt like i couldnt push if i could hold oneven got them to put sides of bed up so i could grip them! hope this helps or that someone else is along soon xxx

The one I had has handles (birth pool in a box). The plastic it's made of isn't at all slippery either so you can grip them. I loved mine.
