A natural labor without any intervention or drugs is often preferred by women and is typically part of their birth plans; however things do not always go according to plan when women go into labor.
At the time of labor, a woman may feel fear, tension and pain. The body secretes large amounts of adrenaline and women experience greater stress. At this time the muscles are tense and the body is not relaxed.

When a woman’s body is stressed, her mouth automatically closes and she clenches her jaws.
By acting as a cushion between the top and bottom teeth, Laboraide alleviates tension in the jaws, and reduces stress in the neck and shoulders and the woman relaxes.

When a woman feels relaxed the level of cortisol in her body is reduced and level of Beta Endorphins increases leading to her feeling less pain.

Trials have shown that using a dental support device, such as Laboraide, can reduce the pain.

"My pain relief was removed for the second stage of labor so the Laboraide gave me something to focus on and it felt like I still had something to help me through it."

Rebecca – London 21/01/13

Laboraide is a natural and drug-free oral device for the reduction of labor pain and operative intervention, including vacuum and unscheduled C-section.

Acting as a cushion between the woman’s jaw, Laboraide allows the jaw, neck and back muscles to relax by maintaining the ideal amount of free space. The relaxed open jaw leads to more effective breathing with better oxygen flow. Each unit comes with 2 sizes, a 1mm and 3mm mouthpiece for the best fit.

Laboraide stimulates a hormonal and physiological response, assisting the woman in two key areas:

Reduced Sensation of Pain
An open jaw during labor reduces stress, which in turn increases Beta Endorphins and helps the woman cope with pain.

Reduced Operative Intervention
As oxygen levels rise and muscles are relaxed; abdominal muscles receive greater isometric strength. Together, the relaxed muscles and better oxygen flow helps the woman store her energy, and ultimately allows her to focus all energy into stronger and more effective pushing. This in turns leads to a shorter second stage of labor, and reduced likelihood of complications, including arrest of fetal descent.

Clinical Proof

Many studies have shown that an oral device during training can increase isometric strength of different muscles (in particular abdominal) and core stability. So much so, that oral devices are now widely used during professional athletes’ training and competition.
A study done at the University of Maryland in 2009 found that an oral device can shorten the pushing stage of labor by as much as 40%, and reduce the risk of failure during fetal descent.
