Childbirth does not have to take place on a bed.

 

This outdated perception goes against any physical instinct – we are not meant to give birth on our backs. A research on the experience of childbirth and all its components has led to a focus on the delivery room and the need to break the scheme that is currently offered to women. Shosh is a childbirth armchair for hospitals. It offers a different option to women who wish to take control over their childbirth experience. A piece of furniture created with the woman’s physical and mental needs in mind.
