" I founded Kaya Birth because I wanted to contribute, through design, to a conversation about greater access to choice during childbirth "

. . .

Kaya Birth was founded in 2008 by industrial designer and sculptor, Kara Springer.  The project came out of extensive cross-cultural and historical research, and in response to the shifting landscape of childbirth in North America and around the world.


Women today are choosing to re-evaluate their relationships to their bodies and their health.  As new questions are raised, healthcare systems around the world are recognizing the need to respond with new and innovative solutions.
