It might be simple, but the Active Birth Floor Mat is a genius piece of furniture that provides ultimate comfort during the birthing process. For those moments of kneeling, squatting or sitting, the soft cushioning will prevent unnecessary aches and ill-comfort, while facilitating an upright and active birth.
A key piece of birthing furniture, the expectant mother or midwife can use the floor mat during or after labour. For the expectant mother, having the right furniture for any position is crucial. With the Active Birth Floor Mat, she can sit, kneel, squat or go on all fours in safety and comfort. Whatever the preferred position at any stage, the mat allows the expectant mother to do what feels right and supports an active birth.
As midwives ourselves, we know kneeling or sitting on the floor is a necessary part of supporting the mother. The floor mat ensures even the coldest hospital floors feel like the comfort of home, even after long periods of time. By using the floor mat, midwives can encourage women to get off the bed onto a clean space and use different positions during labour.
Highest quality manufacturing
The Active Birth Floor Mat is of the highest quality, using innovative and practical methods to ensure hygienic and long-lasting use. Most importantly, the floor mat uses an antibacterial, fluid-proof polyurethane fabric cover to prevent infection while maintaining a soft feel. The completely sealed, high-frequency welded seams provide maximum protection, prevents any splits and is easy to clean.
A non-skid base cleverly stops the mat from moving during use, an important function when supporting those crucial moments during birth.
