Form is based on function and pared down to the essence of aesthetic utility.
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 corners…
there is a reason behind them.
Active Birth Pools encourage mothers to move freely and naturally.
They instinctively find the best positions and discover that the pool provides constant comfort and support wherever they are.
Complete freedom of movement coupled with the relaxing effects of warm water and release of oxytocin significantly increases the possibility for mothers to experience physiological labour.
Active Birth Pools are made from a unique material called FICORE® composite.
Ficore is far superior to acrylic and fibreglass, the materials commonly used to produce water birth pools.
It’s unique properties allow us to sculpt complex, curvaceous forms that make our pools incredibly comfortable, appealing, practical and easy to use.
The design of our birth pools has evolved over the past 33 years.
We are pioneers, innovators and standard setters.
The combination of design, materials, engineering and manufacture that go into our pools make them the “Rolls Royce” of water birth pools.
As Steve Jobs said, ““It takes a lot of hard work to make something simple, to truly understand the underlying challenges and come up with elegant solutions.”
