The pelvis is alleviated of impinging pressure on vessels and nerves. Back pain is relieved. 

Complete comfort is afforded face-down, side-lying and reclining positions.

The torso is supported by suspension on the bony frame. 

The spine is unloaded and decompressed, alleviating pressure on nerve roots.

Hemodynamics are improved for the mother-to-be and baby.
