Oct 2, 2018

Mount Pleasant, SC – October 2, 2018 – East Cooper Medical Center is proud to offer Comfortable Upright Birth (C.U.B.) stools for laboring patients.

CUB Birthing Stool product photoThe 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.”
