SoftBirth also offer a smaller, ‘Mini’ birth couch kit – with the same pull out stool and kneeler – but shorter at 1.2m.  Ideal for smaller birth rooms and can even fit in the back of a small car for community midwifery work (if it weren’t for all the other equipment in your boot!) These are £625+delivery and VAT.  Again, there are discounts for orders of 2+.

This Mini Couch Kit now has the option of an Extension Kit so that it can extend to bed length.  The extension kit is £595 .

Bean bag for birth rooms

A beanbag is a useful item for an active birthing room.  This cylindrical beanbag (90cm across and 60cm high) can be sat on, leant over, and mum can mould  it into the shape she wants.  Made in  the same pleasant, cleanable heather coloured PU material used on the birthing couch kit, these beanbags have a small zip to allow inspection of the interior.

The beanbag is £375+ delivery +VAT.  An additional, zipped outer cover is available in heather or navy PU for £110+VAT.

Birth Mats.birth mat

These birthing mats (1.2m x 1m x 0.05m) can be laid on the floor to enable the birthing mother to move about outside the bath as well.  As optional extra, you can have a ‘bag’ with straps so the mats can be hung on the wall for storage to save space.  These mats are fully heat-sealed and cleanable.  These are £300 a pair (+delivery) or £195 each (+ delivery).  Bags are £75 each and, if ordered with the mat, have free delivery.
