— Birthing Solutions awarded £10k

Dr Fiona Denison from Birthing Solutions, winner of BioCity Glasgow’s 3rd DEVELOP Programme, was awarded £10k at EDGE 11 as a Wildcard Finalist Dec 14.

Birthing Solutions Ltd is the creator of the innovative birth mirror – an Easily Adjustable Submersible Illuminated (EASI) birth mirror to help midwives and new mums to view the birthing process more easily.

This handheld, waterproof mirror could make water births safer and easier for mothers and midwives. It has a flexible, long shaft to reduce bending and potential back injury, an integrated and waterproof light source to help midwives see more easily, and a longer handle to reduce exposure to contaminated water.

Eleven Scottish startup businesses successfully became Wild Card EDGE winners and have earned their place at the Scottish EDGE Wild Card Final, following a competitive pitching process.

The eleven winners selected by our panel of expert judges reflect the truly innovative concepts from which great Scottish businesses are born. We look forward to supporting these entrepreneurs in their journey and to providing mentorship as they develop their innovations in the years ahead.”
