#7 Foldable/Adjustable Seat Cushion by Adam
This cushion is intended to meet your requirements in all areas, including cost, adjustability, and it will simply fold up so that you can carry it like a suitcase. It's approximately 10"x10". Work in progress......

Thank you for this design! I especially like that it is adjustable and portable. Just a few questions or tweaks - I'm wondering if the cushions might actually work better reversed - so that the larger part is up near the thighs to support most of the weight? Also one thing I couldn't do with my prototype was to make the back portion of the seat a little more comfortable. I was working with pool noodles, and I have limited crafty-ability :) I think it might be more comfortable to have an enclosed lumbar or back support? I'll try and attach my comments on a picture.
Also - just wondering how the cushions are connected? What type of connector is that in front? It looks like a bendable metal to me, but is that right?
Thanks again for your design - this the first one that I've seen which is adjustable - and I really think is critical because there are so many different sized ladies, and exactly how to position the cushion for the most comfort might vary quite a bit I think. Ask your wife :) and tell her I appreciate her input as well!

This is basically your homemade concept with a little flare. This design can easily be prototyped at a upholstery shop, and if you like it, things such as material, foam type, etc. would need to be determined. At this point I can easily make the cushions thicker or wider, whatever you need. I'm a male and don't know about child birth difficulties..... ;-) but my wife provided some input.
