Now you might be wondering “what is a CUB?” Let me tell you….the CUB stands for Comfortable Upright Birthing, and it is a tool that is compact enough to carry in your doula bag, and easy enough to blow up and assemble in a few short minutes. It is soft and comfy for your clients to sit or lean on, or even for use by a partner (or a doula who can’t find a seat).
The U shaped design can also be helpful when a laboring person wants to lean forward onto something but doesn’t want the pressure on their midsection. It is soft and pliable enough to be comfortable in comparison to leaning over the back of the bed. While a birth ball can often be used for this as well the ball, unfortunately does put pressure on the midsection where the CUB provides the space the body needs.
