EPI·NO is clinically proven to:
- Reduce the incidence of an episiotomy or perineal tear from natural birth
- Increase apgar score (rating for the health of a newborn)
- Decrease the need for drugs during birth
- Reduce the parturition phase of birth (resulting in less stress for the baby)
- Reduce anxiety in the mother-to-be for a more enjoyable birth experience
" ... Through the training with EPI·NO, the need for episiotomy and the spontaneous perineum tear rate have sunk significantly. The expulsion phase has -- in more than 70% of all births -- been shortened by at least half the expected time. The anxiety that many pregnant women have concerning the “passage of the head” is discussed and can already be dissipated before the birth. Many women speak after the birth of a “recognition effect” during delivery of the head because of their training with EPI·NO.
Based upon several years of experience, we can warmly recommend the EPI·NO pelvic floor trainer to every pregnant woman as preparation for the birth as well as well as after the birth for help in childbirth recovery. ... "
