We’ve had a bit of a flurry of requests for corner baths, mainly from export customers, so we thought we’d better write a short blog on them.
The short answer is, ‘yes, we do make them.’ They are an excellent option where space is a bit tight but the hospital still want to give a birthing mum the option of a water birth. Sometimes, corner baths are avoided as the midwives want to be able to access the woman from as many parts of the bath as possible.
Our Dunoon model birthing bath is ideally suited to being used in a corner. It is already designed specifically to be compact and fit in smaller rooms but to still give a labouring woman plenty of room to move and keep active during birth. It does this by virtue of its rounded rectangular shape and by using space wisely so that it still has the capacity of a birth.
The Dunoon can be fitted in any position and doesn’t have to go in a corner but if you let us know when ordering, we can include an extra piece of trim (at no cost) so that you can have a neat finish against the corner walls.
