Birthing Chair - Tiv People, Nigeria

$1,800.00
A wonderful old and well used birthing chair.
A birthing chair was designed & shaped to assist women during childbirth. The intent was to keep the mother upright & to provide balance & support.
The chairs were low to the ground to allow laboring women to brace their feet against the ground to help in pushing.
The early chairs varied between having three or four legs. They supported the bottom of the women in labor & often had a slender, sloped back for comfort & to allow birthing assistants, who were positioned behind the mother in labor, to massage or support her.
The use of the birthing chair has been seen around the globe, & was not isolated to a particular region. The birthing chair can be traced back to Egypt in the year 1450 B.C.E.
