About Us

We are a small, dedicated team of professionals with a combined 30 plus years of experience in the NHS Maternity sector.  Ruth and David Weston own Aquabirths UK, an established business which has been designing, manufacturing and installing birth pools in NHS hospitals and birth centres across the country for the last 12 years.  Caroline Ward has a background in interior design and product design for the birth environment. She has also worked in maternity services, so has a unique insight into the needs of Midwives and service users.

Together we provide a comprehensive service to Midwives and Birth Professionals with a strong focus on active birth and supreme comfort for women and the Healthcare professionals who care for them.

SoftBirth™ is the most recent expansion to our business and is born from our passion to provide well-designed, durable and cost-effective furniture and accessories for the birth environment, whether that be a Birth Centre, Midwife Led Unit, Delivery Suite or even a home birth environment.

Our new and exclusive product range has been developed with the requirements of women and Midwives in mind and addresses the need for comfort and and durability whilst also being safe for the hospital environment.  For example, we have revolutionised the design of a traditional birthing couch taking into account feedback from Midwives by making it a more versatile unit with integrated kneeling mat and seat. This means the couch now has multiple uses for the woman, her birthing partner and her midwife.

All our products are manufactured and assembled in the UK to rigorous quality control standards.  We work with specialist manufacturers to ensure our furniture is of the highest quality construction in order that it can withstand even the most rigorous environments.
