When asked about the history of birthing pools in hospitals, I first mention two key events:
-In the 1970s, my visit to a sports shop in Pithiviers, the French town where I was practising: I bought a deep inflatable blue paddling pool and we found a convenient space in the maternity unit to install it.
-The day when Keith Brainin suddenly realized that special bath tubs might be designed and commercialized to meet the needs of labouring women.”
I was surprised and impressed with this bed - and feel it's much more than a bed!
The beautifully crafted furniture is soft to touch yet strong and secure. Perfect for kneeling and squatting, there is room for partners and supporters too, and the bed is low and accessible.
I love it!”
You clearly have a tub that is far superior to all the tubs we have found in the US--not only for patient comfort, but also for provider convenience.
...The Active Birth Pool would set Rush-Copley above all the other hospitals in the area.
...I am more than willing to assist you with advertising and being a site that others could either come and see our Alternative Birthing Room or at minimum, they could view the room by a virtual tour.”
I can't tell you how much your pools have revolutionised birth.”
The pools are such a wonderful feature- they are a hit with the staff--the blue tooth is a real wow factor! all of our babies so far have been born in them!”
Brilliant, like the wide brim so mums can sit on the side and swivel their legs around to get in and out, much safer.”
The bed is exactly what is required for birth centers. It is fit for purpose and looks amazing too”
Thank you for the awesome pools. My one regret is not trying out one myself before we opened the birth centre! Many thanks”
It looks absolutely fantastic! Looks so comfortable and useful. Especially for those long labours where women need support for the second stage.”
Three state-of-the-art water birth pools have been used to create the ‘wow’ factor in a new birthing unit at Worcestershire Royal Hospital. Mothers can adjust the colour of lighting in the pools and choose music to play on the integral bluetooth sound system. Meadow Birth Centre has been designed to look and feel homely, colourful and bright, helping everyone involved to feel comfortable and relaxed throughout the process.”
Keith.. Just to say congratulations on the popularity of your pools....they look great and you promote them well, using professional input and evidence with pt use as good background for their place in normal childbirth...enjoy seeing your posts.”
I saw the pool today and I was delighted!
It is bigger than what I expected!”
We love your active birth pools, so much so we have one in every room on our birth centre”
Beautiful pools and wonderful to see the history of their development.
Thank you for all you have done and designed for women, their babies and partners over the last 30yrs to make birth more comfortable and peaceful.
I would just like to say thanks for your positive, friendly and professional response to my request, if all suppliers had the same level of aftercare my job would be so much easier.”
Let me introduce you to Keith Brainin who provided us with our princess pools in both of our birth centres. His pools are brilliant and the service that he provides is excellent.”
Seeing all the promotional material you have and the quality it shows, we’ve got the feeling that we should take your productline into The BeNeLux on a exclusive base.”
Equipped with a cutting-edge technology including built in Bluetooth Sound and Multi-colour lighting the active birth pool helps create the ideal atmosphere for natural birth.”

The pinnacle of water birth pool design and development. An incomparable combination of design, materials & manufacturing.”
Thank you Keith... Our new Venus Pool looks stunning”
The feedback has been good thank you, its been very useful to try it out. I am planning to purchase some mats / bean bags and possibly a stool and wanted to get prices so I can plan my budget.”
That's fantastic Keith! Thank you so much for all your help and attention on this! I am very impressed with your company's customer service.”
I have had the pleasure of working with Keith Brainin since 1985.Keith’s expertise in birth pools facilitated the design of the pools on the Birth Unit, initially at the Garden Hospital in Hendon and subsequently at St John & St Elizabeth Hospital in St John’s Wood. Keith supplied all the birth pools to the Birth Unit. Keith is professional to work with and the standard of the birth pools, both the design and the materials has resulted in them withstanding the test of time and many births.”
