Comfortable Upright Birth
The CUB is an inflatable support specifically designed to help mothers maintain upright, comfortable positions, increasing the likelihood of a smooth, shorter, and natural birth.
Being upright during labour and birth can increase the space within your pelvis for your baby to be born by 28-30%
Your labour contractions can be more effective
Your baby will cope better with labour and birth and will be less distressed, 54% less incidence of fetal heart abnormalities
The length of the first stage of your labour, between 3-10 centimetres can be significantly reduced by up to 50%
A shorter second stage (pushing stage) of labour
You are 23% less likely to need a medically assisted birth. More space, less distress and a shorter labour results in fewer necessary intervention
You are 21% less likely to need an episiotomy which is a small cut to your perineum to increase the room for baby to be born
You have a 29% reduced chance of having an emergency caesarean section
