ISHI by Red Zen Design
"ISHI" by red zen design is an innovative concept in ergonomic seating that encourages better health through good posture, relaxed breathing and improved circulation. Inspired by Eastern traditions, the pursuit of purity in design and the culture of meditative practice, this unique instrument of contemplation has developed into a simple, beautiful form that appears to have been shaped by nature. In use ISHI becomes an extension of you. Mobility in all planes allows the engagement of core structure. Fatigued muscle, compressed contact points and disturbed circulation is dramatically reduced, allowing you to relax, meditate and even work in a safe but mobile state. www.redzendesign.com

where the process of birth is able to unfold in a calm, unhurried and
peaceful atmosphere. The evidence is clear that for most women
experiencing a normal pregnancy, this is the safest environment in
which to labour and give birth. This is true for first and subsequent
