The twin pack contains a 1mm and a 3mm thickness Laboraide. Research shows that the ideal thickness to assist with the 'pushing' (second) stage of labour is the 3mm thickness Laboraide. The thinner 1mm
Laboraide is available in either a twin pack or quad pack and both sets contain Laboraides made in gentle pastel colours. The twin pack contains a 1mm and a 3mm thickness Laboraide. Research shows that a thicker Laboraide can assist with the 'pushing' (second) stage of labour. The thinner 1mm Laboraide can help relieve pain relief during the earlier stages of your labour and being thinner is more comfortable for that prolonged first stage of labour (contractions). The quad pack contains 1mm, 3mm, 5mm and 7mm thickness Laboraides. Having such a wide range of thicknesses gives you the opportunity to find your ideal thickness for each stage of labour as it progresses. You may find that the thinner 1mm Laboraide is suitable during the earlier stages of labour and that the 3mm thickness one aids the pushing stage, but by having the added advantage of the 5mm and 7mm thickness Laboraides you can experiment to discover which is the optimum thickness one for you when it comes to the pushing stage. For example, if your jaw aches after you have been wearing the 5mm thickness Laboraide for a while, you could change to the 3mm thickness one until the discomfort has eased. Made from a thermoplastic elastomer which has been specially blended to ensure the ultimate in fit and comfort, your Laboraide is odour and taste free.
