Rent the Cub for Your Pregnancy and Birth!
What is the CUB?
The CUB (Comfortable Upright Birth) is a comfortable, stable inflatable support tool that helps expectant mothers get into a variety of upright positions during pregnancy and labour. It allows mothers to adjust to the positions which are the most comfortable for them at home and in hospital. Being upright during labour has numerous benefits to both mum and baby!
When you rent the CUB kit from Limerick Doula Services, you have full use for five weeks from 37-42 weeks gestation. Depending on location, the CUB will be delivered to you in person or sent via registered post. Your booking will be confirmed once contract and payment have been received.
