Childbirth could be considered over medicalised within the UK with less than half of recent births being unassisted. Research collected demonstrates the desire for medical intervention, derives from the fear of childbirth. Assuage aims to redefine and empower the emotions felt towards labour, influencing a natural confident experience for the birthing team.
The maternal and parental market conveyed a clear need for focus on the birth rather than the baby. Hence why Assuage was created for birthing partners to use on the pregnant individual. Empathetic Design drove the inspiration behind Assuage. The device is ergonomically shaped to optimally 'assuage' and soothe mothers in childbirth. The experience allowed through the tool, has derived from thorough research of ancient Chinese medicinal techniques. All aspects of this product reflect the designers' passions and values of compassionate healing.
