Standing, pacing, kneeling, rocking and sitting on an exercise ball were all useless. The only comfortable position I could find was sitting on the BirthRite Seat. I know that without it I would not have coped anywhere near as well as I did .

I have been consistently satisfied with the usefulness of the BirthRite Studio in the situation of normal births as well as breech births. I feel women would be most disadvantaged if they did not have the benefit of using it.

The BirthRite is a resounding success in my practice. Every woman who has tried it spontaneously says they can feel both where and how the baby needs to move down through the pelvis, and they do really well at getting it done.

I have had nothing but successful birth after successful birth. The BirthRite was the best investment I have ever made!
— Dr Mari Stewart
The BirthRite is awesome! We delivered a VBAC client on the BirthRite Seat, who had been told her contracted pelvis would NEVER accommodate even a normal size baby! Well, her baby was 4300g!!! She was so very pleased!

At the hospital, the first thing I did was sit on the BirthRite Seat. I felt immediately comfortable and was relieved not to have to continually move or search for a comfortable position. I was able to remain calm, relaxed, surprisingly still and breathe my baby out gently.

We have now used the Floor Studio for seven labours, and all the women liked using the Studio. Our midwives are very satisfied, too.

The Floor Studio, and in particular the availability of the Midwife Seat, has enabled me to receive clearance from OH&S to continue working in the birthing suite which I love. It has helped with the rehabilitation of my knee following surgery.

I must say I love our BirthRite Seat! It is without doubt the best one we have tried and it is used frequently on the unit. I am happy to share my experiences with anyone interested in using it.
