I have a similar product which I use because I have physical disabilities. I had to buy a chair for my daughter because she was using mine. She is very pregnant, and found that sitting on a chair was more comfortable in the shower. I invested in a shower chair from Blooms Chemist. It is a bit more expensive than the one that I have, but it is of a much superior design and supports the weight of my daughter's expanding tummy.. She will continue to use the chair after she has the baby, the comfort of this chair is, for her, the most important aspect..
