Women choosing a natural childbirth know only too well that their carefully considered birth plans can unexpectedly change as their labour progresses. And the quicker and easier the labour, the better the chance of achieving their aim of a natural birth. This is where Laboraide can help
In 2009 a very significant study was carried out at the Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology, University of Maryland USA, which demonstrated some major findings, principally that:
- The average duration of the second stage of labour for women wearing a dental support device (DSD) was 40% shorter than in the non DSD group.
- Using a DSD may decrease the number of failures to descend (baby entering birth canal after woman is fully dilated) requiring operative intervention.
Laboraide can also give women a welcome boost during the ‘pushing’ phase of their labour as clinical trials have shown a significant correlation between the use of ‘biting down’ devices and a corresponding increase in the user’s physical strength.
