Judges at the Building Better Healthcare awards said that the original Active Birth Pool was an incomparable combination of intelligent design, superior materials and state-of-the-art manufacturing.
The latest advancements in design, materials and engineering take the award winning pool to new levels of safety, value and performance.
We’ve transformed the original design into a freestanding pool and designed the sleek Water Column to contain the plumbing to maximise hygiene and provide welcome support for mothers and midwives.

Over the past 36 years we've supplied thousands of water birth pools to maternity units around the world, and helped millions of women have better births.
The combination of evidence based, user-centred, ergonomic design, specialised materials and bespoke manufacturing result in water birth pools that are in a class of their own.
We’ve achieved success by continuously innovating, keeping things simple and focusing on our core principles of safety, value and performance.
Active Birth pools are handmade to order in England, built to last for decades and guaranteed for life
