Tutorial No. 115: Extra-wide rim – key to success

Blog: 7.02.2017

The broad, round wrap-around rim is a distinctive feature of our pools.

This unique feature together with flowing, form hugging outer panel makes the critical difference between Active Birth Pools and others on the market.

The combination of these features provides a multitude of benefits & safeguards for mothers & midwives.

This unique and innovative approach to the design of water birth pools is only made possible because of the remarkable qualities of Ficore® – the proprietary material our pools are fabricated in.


The wrap-around rim provides mothers with amazing support.

With firm, solid support at their finger tips, mothers can benefit from postures that would otherwise be difficult or impossible to assume.


Active Birth Pools are designed with midwives firmly in mind.

Our pools have skirting panels that hug the form of the pool & flow down to the floor in one seamless piece.

Seated on the Saddle Seat with her legs tucked well under the pool and arms resting on the wide rim the midwife attends the mother in comfort.


The experience of the partner has been taken into account by enabling them to be comfortable and relaxed around the pool.

Partners are able to be close to the mother to support her when the going gets tough and be there to share intimate moments.
