Complications during the second stage of childbirth
During the second stage of child birth (the pushing stage), that begins once the cervix is dilated to 10 cm, the mother is required to push affectively in order to assist her baby on his or her way through the birth canal, without getting stuck along the way. Affective pushes can assist in avoiding a hazardous situation for both mother 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.
In order to avoid such a situation and to assure that her pushes are focused and affective, the mother is required to gather all of her strength and energy. At the same time, due to the emotional stress she is in, which manifests in the form of the jaw, shoulder and back muscles contracting and the prevention of a free flow of oxygen into the body, most of the mothers' resources are allocated to these muscles, instead of to the core muscles (stomach muscles). This manifests in less affective pushes, prolonging the duration of the childbirth and therefore enhancing the risk of surgical interference.
Laboraide assists in avoiding surgical interference during childbirth
An extensive medical research conducted by Professor Yogev, head of the labor ward at Beilinson hospital (a top-ranking academic hospital in Israel), has proven that the use of Laboraidecan substantially reduce the need for surgical interference during the second stage of child birth by 70%. Women, who used Laboraide whilst giving birth during the research, were less likely to need the help of a vacuum machine or an emergency C-section in order to help the baby exit the birth canal safely.
The use of Laboraide helps to relax the jaw, shoulder and back muscles, allows a free flow of oxygen into the body and elevates the oxygenation of the muscles. This strengthens the isometric power of the core muscles (stomach muscles). By strengthening these muscles, the mother is able to produce more affective and focused pushes which can help reduce the chance of needing surgical interference whilst the baby is on its way through the birth canal
