Building Better Healthcare Awards
We helped pioneer the use of water for labour and birth by designing the pools that made this revolution in maternity care possible.
Since 1987 we’ve supplied thousands of water birth pools to hospitals around the world and established a reputation for quality and service.
Mothers and midwives love our pools because they are incredibly comfortable, practical and easy to use.
Hospitals buy our pools because they’re the safest on the market, deliver unbeatable value and better results.
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.
Active Birth Pools are handmade to order by highly skilled craftsmen in England and shipped world-wide.
Our pools are fabricated in a proprietary material called Ficore®, a composite resin far superior to fibreglass and acrylic.
“Not only are they gloriously spacious and inviting, they are made to the highest specifications and considerations to maximise comfort and safety. In short, they are second to none!”
