Research Driven Development

Over years of research, speaking to hundreds of obstetricians, midwives, and new mothers, we found that having a sense of agency - feeling informed and able to participate in decision making - was a major factor in how positively women reported feeling about their births.

Birth is unexpected.  Even with a birth plan in place, things rarely go exactly as planned.  Even when things went off course, women who felt a sense of agency spoke in dramatically more positive tones about their experience of birth. 



At Kaya Birth we don't believe that there's one right way to give birth.  Not every woman should deliver at home.   Nor should every woman deliver in a hospital.  We believe the best place for a woman to give birth is in the place where she feels most comfortable and most safe.

The simple organic form of the Kaya Stool was designed with this in mind, allowing a woman to guide her own experience of birth in the location that she chooses, moving through the range of positioning she finds most comfortable and most effective.
