As many of you know the NCT shop recently closed leaving many midwives wondering where they will obtain their beanbags and floor mats from.
Don’t worry help is at hand…
Over the past 12 years we’ve supplied 1000’s of Beanbags and Floor Mats to hospitals around the country.
Their reputation for quality, usability and durability is well established.
In fact, prior to their decision to close the shop the NCT met with us and were so impressed with the superior quality of our mats and beanbags that they were going to start stocking them in place of the mats and loungers they had been selling.
There is a significant difference between our mats and beanbags and others on the market that’s obvious if you compare them side-by-side.
For starters we use the highest medical grade waterproof fabric available and seal all the seams to ensure that infection control standards are met and maintained.
We recently upgraded the fabric to conform to the new regulations that require cleaning with 10,000ppm hypochlorite.
For our mats we use Plastazote, a medical grade foam that provides firm support while standing or squatting yet is soft enough to provide cushioning from cold, hard hospital floors when sitting or kneeling.

Active Birth Beanbag

Standard: Height: 600mm Diameter: 680mm Weight: 3kg
We can also offer you an upgraded version of the Birthing Lounger that the NCT used to sell.
Same size and shape but covered in our new high grade fabric.
Small: Length: 1000mm x Diameter: 800mm
Medium: Length: 1250mm x Diameter: 800mm
Large: Length: 1500mm x Diameter: 800mm
There are two important differences between the Active Birth Beanbag and the Birthing Lounger:
1) The Active Birth Beanbag is taller and much firmer as it is designed to support women in the upright postures natural to labour and birth
2) The Active Birth Beanbag is stronger and more robust so that it holds its shape and provides mothers with the support they need.
It’s constructed in two layers comprising an inner cotton cover and an outer medical-grade fabric cover.
The inner cover gives the beanbag strength and shape whilst the outer cover is waterproof and disinfectable.
