Aquabirths will include a free SoftBirth birthing couch kit with the Canberra, Venus and Heartshaped models of our birth baths. The SoftBirth birthing couch kit is usually £950 but is on offer at the moment at £795. More details can be found at http://softbirth.com/ You can also download their information flyer and spec sheet there too. We’ve tried one out – it is very comfortable and unlike other couches, is not cumbersome and heavy. The inter-changeable cushions make this a very flexible help for birthing and labouring mothers. So, even if you’re not buying one of our birthing baths, you can still get it at the offer price. http://softbirth.com/
Softbirth© have just launched their range of soft furnishings for the birthing room. The most exciting piece being their birthing couch kit.
With its simple yet innovative design, its segments can be moved around to suit the needs of the moment. The stool segment pulls out to give a seat for the midwife or birth partner. The recess can be used for the mother to kneel – a kneeling mat is included for comfort. Other couches charge for other items, such as inserts, as an optional extra whereas they are included in the price of the Softbirth couch.
The foam used is very firm for safety’ s sake but it is topped off with memory foam to give a very comfortable feel. The comfort is enhanced as the design tries to get away from the ‘clinical look’ whilst still being suitable for the birth room. Its approximate dimensions are 2m x 1m x 0.45m. And whilst it is firm and stable, it is not heavy or cumbersome like other similar products. It can be easily moved and deployed or put aside to clear space.
The cover is hospital grade and has welded seams and is fully cleanable. The cover is zipped so that it can be replaced and to enable inspection (the inner of the cloth is white so that any ‘strike-through’ can be quickly spotted. The zips are covered by hygiene flaps. The couch can come in mid-lilac as shown or navy blue and replacement covers can be purchased either with the couch or later as a replacement.
Another optional extra is the comfort cushions set consisting of a pillow, a square cushion and a cylinder-cushion. Larger versions of these cushions are available.
