How Does it Work

For many women, the first and second stages of labor can last several hours. If there was a way of reducing the length of the second stage, this would surely be good news.
When a woman is in labor her body is in a state of stress. In response, the body secretes large amounts of adrenaline, which can lead the woman closing her mouth and clenching her jaws thereby contracting the neck and back muscles. This results in the woman feeling greater discomfort and stress.
The Laboraide Mouth Piece is designed to act as a cushion between the teeth and alleviate tension in the jaw.  The change in posture with Laboraide has two major effects:

  • Maintaining the relaxation of the jaw, the neck and the shoulders creating a significant knock-on effect down to the abdominal muscles, which have to contract to expel the newborn.
  • Allowing consistent free oxygen flow to the lungs, resulting in the increased oxygenation of the muscles

Scientific Studies have found that a dental support device such as Laboraide has proven to shorten the second stage of labor by as much as 40% when the mother is required to activate the abdominal muscles to help push the newborn through the birth canal.
