Delux Labor Tub
If natural birth is important to you, you’ll find a natural option for pain management during childbirth at Sierra Vista Regional Medical Center. Our Delux Labor Tub allows you to take advantage of the soothing properties of warm water to help ease labor pain. Soaking in a warm tub during labor can help relieve contractions and back pain by using the buoyancy of water to lift the weight of the baby off of the mother’s back. The water’s buoyancy allows you to easily change positions more easily, decrease muscular tension and reduce gravitational pull.
Unlike inflatable tubs that are often used at other facilities, our permanent tub is ergonomically designed to support your back and allow access for your doctor. The depth of the tub provides total immersion along with hand and foot grips for bracing and support. There are three removable doors for easy entry and exit, along with seating for you and your partner or coach.
