Ceiling mounted birth sling

A cloth birthing sling is a valuable and increasingly popular means of promoting and active labour and birth.  The cloth is a 6m length so that when it hangs doubled-up from the hook it is 3m long.

The designs and colours of the sling cloths change too frequently to give a selection here, so if you tell us a colour preference and a few pointers to pattern, we’ll gather together the current options.  The two below seem to be the most available.

The kit comprises the metalwork (in steel and stainless steel) to bolt to a roof joist/girder and woven cotton sling (in choice of colours).  £695.  (Metalwork only costs £395).  This kit uses generic steel metalwork to anchor an eye-bolt from which to suspend a sling cloth to take loads of 100kg* The eye-bolt is long enough to protrude through a false ceiling.

Metal work only £395+delivery and VAT, with cloth, £695+delivery and VAT.

*The metal work has been tested to 400kg and has a working load of 200kg.  The cloth was tested to failure at 175kg; a working load of no more than 100kg is recommended.  No other certification for this kit is claimed or implied.
