We take care of your water birth.

What is a birth pool?

Our birth pool is specifically designed with birthing mothers in mind. With the help of their feedback, our birth pool supports a safe water birth, both for mother and child. Our birth pool comes in two different sizes. Look at the specs below to find out why our birth pool is the best option for you.

Choice of regular and mini size

Some families have limited floor space, some mothers wanted their partner to join them, yet other mothers wanted as much freedom as possible in the pool. Hence, we made the birth pool in Regular (2 persons) and Mini (1 person) sizes to accommodate these needs.

Mothers requested these strong handles on the outside of the pool (2 sets, uniquely positioned) for use when leaning over the side (when birthing on knees). They are angled at 30 degrees for maximum comfort.
Mothers said they wanted a clear space to rest their heads with no distracting texts, images, or logo’s.
Midwifes indicated that some mothers needed lower sides for ease of entry and exit. By releasing air from the middle chamber and topping up the remaining top and bottom chambers, midwifes can adjust the height of the pool while ensuring a stable pool.
Mothers requested that seams be smooth where they rest their heads, hence we have created no rough edges on the pool for ultimate comfort.

To ensure that laboring women are able to stay hydrated without having to ask for a drink, we have added a cup holder to our pool.
Midwives and mothers agreed that internal handles in the pool might obstruct full movement and prevent effective use of a liner.
The Regular (2 persons) size pool has ample space for your partner, should they want to join you. Many couples enjoy the intimacy and shared experience that being together in the pool brings.
We believe in taking advice from professionals: midwives requested a white floor to enhance visibility in the birthing pool.
Mothers wanted comfort on the birth pool floor. All our pools have a continuously inflated floor.
Mothers asked for handles to give them control over their movements in the water. They are also useful for gripping during contractions and to hold onto while getting in and out the pool.
Mothers unanimously agreed that the opaque external wall of the birthing pool increased their sense of privacy. We know that the release of oxytocin is a key factor to a successful labour and women who feel safe and private release more oxytocin.
Each pool is inflated and factory tested to ensure that it has no defects and then 5 - 10% are randomly sampled and tested again by independent inspectors. The sides are strong enough to allow a 95 Kg person to sit or lean on them. Midwives and birth partners love the width of the sides of the birth pool.
Midwives and mothers agreed that a drain plug was an unnecessary weak link in a birthing pool.
Mothers liked the perception of larger space created by having a clear inner wall
Some mothers wanted to be cocooned while others wanted space, so we designed the pool in an egg-shape. The seat in the narrower end with the top handles is a very popular place for women to sit in between contractions.
