Have an active, upright birth!


"I used the CUB throughout my labour and would highly recommend it to anyone!"



The CUB 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.

When the mother is in an upright position it can help the baby to be in the best (easiest) position for birth, making more space within her pelvis than if she is semi-sitting or lying on her back on a bed.

Current research has shown that this can make labour shorter and giving birth easier as well as increase safety for the mother her baby by reducing the risks of complications during birth. The CUB can be used throughout labour as a comfortable support, either to sit on, rest on or lean over as well as to give birth to the baby on; suitable for use in maternity hospitals, birth centres or at home births.

The CUB can now be rented from Central Coast Doula so you can use its benefits during your birth! 


  • Made from an inflated biocompatible material.

  • Small, very lightweight and can fit into a bag ready to go to wherever you want.

  • Very soft and comfortable while maintaining a stable support throughout labour and the birth of the baby in a variety of

  • positions.

  • The CUB does not have the same potential to restrict venous return resulting in perineal oedema as there are no hard, rigid surfaces that could restrict normal perfusion. It acts in the same way as a birth ball on the maternal tissues.
