Oceanis Birth Pool

The Oceanis Birth Pool is a warm, spacious birth pool delivering freedom of movement in the water.

Manufactured to the highest quality standards, the Oceanis pool looks inviting and feels luxurious.

Designed to support women and midwives to achieve their natural childbirth objectives, the Oceanis has a wealth of unique features and customizable design options to complement any delivery room.

Entrance Steps with Handrail

The innovative entry steps with handrails deliver a significant safety enhancement for women entering/leaving the pool. 

The steps lock securely into position using the unique “flange” system, ensuring maximum stability during use & women can then use the supportive handrail to assist their entry/exit.

The innovative design ensures women are supported at every point during pool entry/exit and avoids excessive twisting and uncomfortable leg lifting. 

When detached from the pool, the entry steps’ integrated wheels allow them to be moved easily away from the pool to regain full access.

Birthing Seat & Freedom of Movement

With an integral birthing seat & perineal cut-out with armrests, the Oceanis is supplied as standard with an excellent specification. 

The large, spacious base of the pool allows women to move freely without restriction.

The armrests and footrest positioning plates also offer additional options for women to find their most comfortable position.

Integrated Pop-Up Waste

The integrated pop-up waste is controlled by simply rotating the dial to open the drain. 

The dial is conveniently & ergonomically located in the external shell of the pool to make emptying the pool an easily accessible & simple procedure.

Choice of Colours

You can choose the colour of the external shell of the pool to match your room decor and colour scheme.

The external shell of the pool can be chosen in any colour to match/contrast the design of the room. Just tell us the RAL colour code that is consistent with your colour scheme & we will match it.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are the lead times ?

Usually 14 weeks but we can sometimes accelerate things if needed.  All pools are made bespoke to individual orders

How useful are the entry steps ?

We ship almost every pool with them.  We’ve had some customers order one for every other pool but they’ve come back and ordered the remainder quite soon afterwards.  They are highly recommended

Do you have reference sites ?

Yes of course, just drop us a line at [email protected] and we’ll put you in touch with people who will be happy to share their experience

Do you have a CAD drawing ?

Yes, no problem.  Again, just drop us a line at [email protected] and we will send you back all of the files and formats you need

How is the waste operated ?

There is a disc on the side of the pool that you rotate to open and close the drain.  It controls a pop-up plug in the pool.  No need to have to put your hands in the water or open / close valves on pipework

Can the under-water lights run dry ?

No.  They are new technology cool-touch LED lights that will not run dry if left on without water

How are the lights operated ?

There is a push button integrated into the side of the pool.  Simple

How big is the pool ?

The Oceanis is a spacious pool.  Large enough to support freedom of movement but not so large that you would be a bit lost in the middle of it. We would say it’s a mid-range pool.  Download the brochure for the exact dimensions.  We actually have a life-size cut out of the pool that we can bring to your unit so you can lay it on the floor and see how much space you will have.  Just drop us a line to [email protected]
