With 1 in 3 births* in the U.S. being C-section it is more important than ever to support the family bond during birth and a healthy post-partum recovery. The Family Viewing C-Section Drape and IntraTemp Fluid Warming System work together to enable a cesarean procedure to be a safe and family-centered birth experience.


Note: Medical devices advertised here may not have been licensed in accordance with regional regulations or country specific (e.g. Canadian) laws.

Hospitals now have the option to offer families who have C-section births a clear drape during the procedure. While still protecting the sterile field, hospitals can support families who desire a gentle cesarean or family-centered birth experience. Mother and family are able to view the baby being born and witness its first breath and cry thanks to the large viewing window. The viewing window also has a blue curtain that can be brought up or down during the procedure as appropriate.
Crestwood Medical Center in Huntsville, AL has started offering this option.

• Large family viewing window (109" x 126")
