Provision of a sturdy step unit, extra-wide rim and an internal support seat makes getting into the pool safe & simple. Our Active Birth Pools are 75cm tall and have a depth of 63.5cm. The easiest way to enter a birth pool is by utilising a small step unit of around 15cm high. A small step unit gives mothers a height advantage and reduces risk. Mothers are grounded, stable and most importantly SAFE.
Large/multi-step units are commonly supplied with water birth pools. Mothers climb up, step over the rim & down onto a submerged plinth and into the pool. Manual handling experts do not want women in strong labour endangering themselves by climbing up wet slippery surfaces. Bulky steps obstruct movement around the pool and present a trip hazard. They DANGEROUS and should NOT be utilised.
