Epi No Delphine Plus birth trainer with pressure gauge
Epi No Delphine Plus Geburtstrainer mit Druckanzeige
The EPI-NO Delphine Plus pelvic floor trainers for childbirth preparation and recovery were developed with gynaecologists, midwives and pregnant women.
So that you and your child are well prepared to start a new life, you can do something before the birth: With EPI-NO Delphine and EPI-NO Delphine Plus you can actively support and shape your childbirth preparation. Through gentle, targeted and regular training with EPI-NO, you can effectively prevent painful perineal injuries during birth - e.g. an episiotomy or a perineal tear. Good preparation, shorter expulsion phases, less complicated births also mean less stress for your baby.
A large proportion of all women giving birth are affected by birth injuries. A perineal massage alone is often not enough for prevention, or it is simply perceived as uncomfortable. Possible consequences of a perineal injury are inflammation, scars, pain during bowel movements, but also pain during sex. Stress incontinence or a prolapsed uterus can also occur as long-term effects.
The idea that led to the development of EPI-NO originally came from midwives in Africa: There, pregnant women - even today - prepare themselves naturally for childbirth by stretching and strengthening the pelvic floor muscles with calabash gourds. This reduces the risk of perineal injury. With the soft, inflatable silicone balloon from EPI-NO, a modern medical product has emerged from this old African tradition.
EPI-NO is designed and approved as a 'single user device' - i.e. for use by just one woman. The parts of the device cannot be clinically sterilized after use (due to the material). So before you take over a used one from a friend, it's better to leave it alone. A possible transmission of germs from woman to woman poses a serious risk during pregnancy - not for you, but for your baby!
Also included in the Plus variant
In contrast to the Epi No Delphine, Epi No Delphine Plus also contains a pressure display, with which the pressure and thus the training progress can be monitored and visualized (biofeedback). The more the pelvic floor muscles are tensed, the greater the pressure on the balloon.
You can feel and train exactly the right muscle groups and monitor your training success.
