Ecolab's Innovative Family Viewing Drape Supports Growing Gentle C-section Trend

December 04, 2015

Ecolab Inc., a global leader in infection prevention, introduced a surgical Family Viewing Drape to enhance the birth experience for families whose babies are born through cesarean procedures.

The drape features a large viewing window (109" x 126") that can be positioned up or down to provide families with the option of seeing their baby during the first moments of life, while maintaining the essential sterile field necessary during the surgical procedure.

Family-centered cesarean procedures, also known as gentle C-sections, are gaining popularity in many hospitals across the United States. In gentle C-section procedures, mothers delivering via cesarean see their newborns through a specially designed drape and have skin-to-skin contact immediately following birth, creating a more natural and memorable experience.

Ecolab developed the surgical Family Viewing Drape with a larger viewing window to help meet growing demand.

“The Family Viewing Drape is another great example of an Ecolab Healthcare innovation that enhances the patient experience while continuing to provide optimal safety and comfort,” said Mary Pellegrom, marketing director for Ecolab Healthcare. “The precious moments in a delivery room after childbirth can be a profound and lasting experience, and we feel very privileged to play a role in the gentle C-section procedure.”
