Mothers and midwives love our water birth pools

Midwives tell us that our pools are by far the most comfortable and user friendly available.

They say that they are ‘fab’ and pleasure to use.

Mothers simply tell us that, ‘they love our pools’.

They benefit from complete freedom of movement and unparalleled safety and support.

And, therefore have better births.

We’ve spent decades observing the way that mothers and midwives move in and around the pool and considered how to best serve their needs.

Our passion for excellence has led us to study ergonomic design theory and work closely with midwives, health and safety and manual handling experts.

This has enabled us to design water birth pools that are are incredibly comfortable, practical and easy-to-use.

But please don’t take our word for it….

see what mothers and midwives have to say:

“The best pools for the Birth Olympics hands down! Makes you want to have another baby just to experience it again!  I’ve both delivered and caught babies in your pool. They’re comfortable, provide stability, are simple to clean and midwife and dad friendly. Just a dream all the way around.

Alicia Witt Director, CEO at

“Beautiful pools, wonderful to see the history of their design and development.
Thank you for all you have  done for mothers and midwives over the last 35 years to make birth more comfortable and peaceful.”

Amanda Edwards – midwife and active birth teacher

We’ve had the Venus since 2016 and 256 water births later we can highly recommend Keith and his pool. Keith has been always quick, helpful and kind in responding to any queries we’ve had and our mums and dads are very happy in using this pool! Thank you Keith!

“The pool met all of my expectations. I’m convinced  that the water helps you stay in control in the final stages.”

“I’ve used Active Birth pools for over 17 years. They’re really beautiful, technically perfect and exceptionally easy to use.” 

Dr Lucia Rocca-Ihenacho PhD, MSc, RM – Lecturer in Midwifery

” I consistently hear from moms how much they love the pools! The space and depth allow them to benefit fully from the buoyancy.  As a midwife, I love the fact that I can move around the tub and catch babies from any position.

Rachel Stapleton – Midwife 25 years experience of water birth

“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!”

Sheena Byrom OBE – Activist, Midwife, Speaker and Author

“Brilliant, like the wide rims so mums can sit on the side and swivel their legs round to get in and out, much safer. And, you can get your legs under the rim, so much more comfortable for midwives ”

A. Bentley NHS Midwife

“Let me introduce you to Keith Brainin who provided us with water birth pools for our birth centres. His pools are brilliant and the service he provides is excellent”
