We helped pioneer the use of water for labour and birth by designing
the water birth pools that made this revolution in maternity care possible.
Over the past 32 years we’ve supplied thousands of water birth pools to hospitals around the world.
Our new water birth pools are a product of over 60 years experience in design, materials and manufacture.
They set new standards for safety, value and performance and are a quantum leap forward in every respect!
We’ve utilised evidence based, ergonomic design principles to develop
water birth pools that provide the optimum environment for labour and birth in water.
Design is based upon the dynamics of mothers and midwives as they interact with the pool and each other.
Every shape, every curve, every varying degree of rounded corner – there is a reason behind them.
Mothers enjoy complete freedom of movement and instinctively find the positions most comfortable and beneficial.
Midwives find our water birth pools incredibly practical, comfortable and easy-to-use.
Building Better Healthcare Awards
The pinnacle of water birth pool design and development. An incomparable combination of design, materials & manufacturing.
Ficore® gives our pools superior strength, resistance to bacteria and heat retention.
The ultra-smooth finish is less slippery, more tactile and warm to the touch.
Fabrication in Ficore® gives our pools a density that is 5 x harder and heat retention 7 x greater compared to pools made from fibreglass or acrylic.
Ficore’s unique properties allow us to sculpt complex, curvaceous forms that make our pools incredibly comfortable, appealing, practical and easy-to-use.
