Tummy tub…..Have you seen it?


Learn more about how the Original TummyTub eases the transition from the comfort of the mother’s womb to the outside world.  Babies naturally adopt the fetal position and quickly calm and relax!  Made in Europe and surpassing all safety standards, the TummyTub is catching on with American midwives and is starting to be used in birthing centers, hospitals, and homes across the country!

Learn More about the Original TummyTub here!!

To watch how midwives, doctors, doulas, and other healthcare professionals use the TummyTub and the benefits to babies, watch this VIDEO! You will see a stark difference between the bath this Italian nurse gives this newborn, compared to the typical American hospital bath for newborns. Read TESTIMONIALS from midwives and doulas across Europe!


Not just for use as a baby bath tub, the TummyTub has therapeutic qualities and gently introduces babies to their new world.  Similar in nature to swaddling and carrying in a sling, curling up in fetal position in warm water is sheer bliss to a new baby!  We would be happy to explain how to incorporate the TummyTub in your practice or group, and hope you will join our growing family of TummyTub proponents!  We were recently represented at the MANA conference in Monterray, CA in October, and we are also attending the National Midwive’s Conference in DC next June.
