Since 1987 we’ve supplied thousands of birthing pools to hospitals around the world and established a reputation for quality and service.
Mothers and midwives love our water birth pools because they are incredibly comfortable, practical and easy to use.
Hospitals buy our pools because they deliver superior performance, unparalleled safety, unbeatable value and unrivalled sustainability.
We’ve achieved success by continuously innovating, keeping things simple and focusing on our core principles of safety, value and performance.
Our unrivalled knowledge and wealth of experience enable us to provide water birth pools that minimise risk, optimise results and maximise value.
