DUO / Labour and birthing aid

DUO
DUO

DUO is a piece of furniture that unites the woman and partner, and creates a more intimate birthing experience in a hospital setting. It is designed to emulate each movement that the couple makes and not dictate their positions during the labour and birthing process. In this way it assists the partner in supporting the woman. When entering the maternity room the partner will be told that the chair is not only a helping aid for the woman but also a tool for him/her to help the mother.
