New Upright Birthing Option Available At East Cooper Medical

Oct 05, 2018 11:04AM ● By Kathleen Maris

East Cooper Medical Center now offers Comfortable Upright Birth (C.U.B.) stools for laboring patients.

The C.U.B. is a modern innovation of the traditional birth stool and the birth ball. Its design supports the mother in an upright position throughout labor and birth. Active position changes are facilitated and supported by the C.U.B. making upright positions including sitting, kneeling, all fours and squatting easier to achieve.

“The C.U.B. aids our staff in creating a safe and comfortable birthing experience for the moms-to-be at East Cooper,” said Patrick Downes, chief executive officer of East Cooper Medical Center. “We take pride in offering our patients an additional element of freedom and choice as they prepare to welcome a new member into their family.”
