Margaret Jowitt, UK physiologist and long-term birth activist, has combined her skills to develop the Osborne Kneeling Chair for birth centres and labour wards everywhere. All is beautifully shown on this short film.
Margaret has been working on this project for a number of years and has refined her design to meet all infection control and other institutional requirements, whilst making sure that her basic idea of enabling free movement and facilitating upright labour and birth are not compromised. The final product looks astonishingly simple but has taken hours, months, years of research, design, engineering and investment. UM wishes her all the best with getting this superb product into birthing rooms across Europe and beyond.
