Free Mini Birth Couch Kit with Birthing Pool

Birthing Couch Kit for Smaller Birth Rooms

The SoftBirth birthing couch kit has a new little sis!  A shorter version for smaller rooms at a smaller price.  A HoM asked us to design a smaller birth couch kit for smaller rooms, so we did and will even fit in the back of a small hatchback. Anyway, with all our birth couches we offer very large discounts when more than one of the same couch is bought. So, this is £600+VAT but 3 or more would be at £500 each.  As with the larger SoftBirth couch, this is a kit – the stool and kneeler are included.  The mini is also FREE with Aquabirths’ Canberra, Venus and Heart-shaped birth baths.

A very useful paper according to none other than Beverley Beech.  More evidence (as if more were needed!) for the need for caseloading community midwifery.  The link below is to the article of the same name as the title of this blog post.
