The Birth Sling was lovingly created for Birthing Mamas and Birth Workers to encourage upright and active birth no matter where you choose to birth.
"Upright labour positioning is associated with quicker labour times, a decrease in the rate of intervention and a 25% decrease in the primary caesarean rate" (Gams, et al 2019)
The Birth Sling, which has been coined “a game changer for active birth positioning” is a birthing tool created by Osteopath, birth worker and new mum Jess Michaels.
"Women have used tools such as ropes, hammocks, and slings to assist them in labour for centuries; this really is just a new and convenient take on these ancient and intuitive methods used by our ancestors. Upright and active labour can have massive benefits for Mother and baby. Emerging research is showing that it is associated with a reduced rate of intervention such as C-section”." says Jess
