What is the CUB

The CUB is short for Comfortable Upright Birth and designed by Cass McNamara, a midwife from the UK. The CUB It is a comfortable, versatile, inflatable support designed to help mothers adopt and maintain positions that are physically the most helpful for them and their babies during labour and birth.

Unlike the classic birthing stool (which is often only used in the last hour), the CUB can support you throughout the birth process. At home or in the hospital. An ideal buddy in other words!

How does it work?

The CUB consists of two separate rooms that are inflatable in a matter of seconds with the supplied electric pump. Each room is divided into compartments, making the CUB very sturdy and stable and allowing you to adopt different positions. This way the mother can actively seek out and try out the posture that feels most comfortable for her at that moment.

The CUB's design enables the baby to be born while the mother is sitting (like on a birth stool) because of the small gap that gives enough space for the baby to pass. This gap also provides enough space for the belly to support you while you lay over the CUB (standing or on your knees) to relax in between contractions. In addition, the air-filled chambers ensure that the woman's pelvis can open to the maximum.

Why would I like to use the CUB?

During the childbirth process, every woman will seek for the most comfortable position. It often changes from standing, sitting, lying or hanging. These movements of the body contribute to an optimal course of the birth process. For centuries women gave birth to their children and traditionally women always did that vertically. This is the most logical and natural attitude for both the woman and the baby. The image of lying on a bed on the back arose because doctors have the best view of the birth process in this position. In some situations this position is also desirable, but as long as there is no reason for this, it is best for the woman to adopt a different comfortable position.

The CUB is an extremely suitable tool to be vertical during the entire birth process, for both the contractions and the actual birth.
