Partera Chair

The PARTERA chair and stool are part of the Syncretism Collection. They were born out of a process of research and observation into vernacular objects in Mexico, particularly its main inspiration departs from the shape of the birthing chairs. The PARTERA chair represents EWE’s unique interpretation and abstraction of this ancient furniture piece.

A birthing chair, also referred to as a birth chair, is a device designed to assist women in maintaining an upright posture during childbirth. Its purpose is to provide balance and support. Birthing chairs have been utilized worldwide for thousands of years and are not limited to any specific region. A version of these chairs arrived in Mexico during the colonial period, likely brought from Spain and France. These specific objects were subsequently introduced and adopted in traditional birthing and midwife practices in Mesoamerica.
