Reduce Pain of Labor
By placing Laboraide in the mother's mouth, it acts as a cushion that creates a gap between the upper and lower jaw. The gap keeps the respiratory system open, elevates the oxygen flow into the body, prevents the jaw, shoulder and back muscles from contracting and substantially

The level of Cortisol, which is
secreted at times of stress,
decreases whilst the level of Beta-endorphins,
the body's natural pain killer, increases.

and baby that can lead to surgical
interference such as a C-section,
or the use of a vacuum machine,
in order to get the baby
out of the birth canal safely.
A research conducted in 2014 at the Beilinson Hospital by Professor Yariv Yogev (Director of Obstetrics and Delivery Ward) examined hundreds of women.
