Pregnancy, Birth and Beyond, a NSW based company providing support and information to midwifery professionals and parents, is the first to launch the Aquaborn Birth Pool range in Australia. This timely launch comes at a time of unrest for the future of independent midwives and the services available for mothers considering home birth.
Pregnancy, Birth and Beyond unveils the new Aquaborn Eco Birth Pool range in June 2010. The Aquaborn range is available to midwives, hospitals and mothers enabling greater choice for expectant mothers who are considering how and where to give birth. Aquaborn Birth Pools are ergonomically designed, portable pools and which have been used in thousands of water births across the globe. They are the strongest birth pool of its kind.
“The Aquaborn Birth Pools are used all over the world and we are very happy to see them finally available to mothers in Australia, through Pregnancy Birth and Beyond. In bringing our product to Australia, we hope to further promote the benefits of using water in labour and birth, and increase the public awareness of the importance of giving mothers a choice when making decisions about their birth” said Catherine Taylor, director of Aquaborn Pty Ltd.
The Aquaborn Pools are ergonomically designed portable pools made from eco vinyl materials. They utilise disposable liners and come with a heat retaining lid as standard.
