The Labor Guard® Device Is 99.8% Effective In Preventing External Hemorrhoids During Vaginal Childbirth1

Designed For You And Your Baby

The Labor Guard device was designed to allow you to focus more on your newborn and less on your postpartum recovery.

The Labor Guard Perianal Stabilizer is a disposable, non-invasive medical device applied during active labor. It provides counter-pressure to protect the anus, thus preventing hemorrhoids during vaginal childbirth.

Hemorrhoids are one of the most common, yet often overlooked, complications of childbirth. They can last up to 6 months postpartum, making an already trying time for a new mom more difficult and even more painful.

The Labor Guard device is the only product clinically proven to help prevent delivery-induced hemorrhoids. Request it for your delivery today.

About The Labor Guard Device

The Labor Guard Perianal Stabilizer is the first and only device to receive FDA clearance to help reduce the likelihood of Cesarean delivery and help prevent the occurrence of external hemorrhoids during vaginal childbirth. The novel device provides external support to the perianal region during vaginal childbirth. Extensive clinical research has yielded a simple, safe and effective approach to addressing two of the most important childbirth concerns for expectant Moms.

In the clinical study, none of the patients in the Labor Guard Perianal Stabilizer group showed a presence of hemorrhoids at the time of hospital discharge, compared to 25% of patients in the control group. The Labor Guard device was shown to be 99.8% effective at preventing external hemorrhoids during vaginal childbirth.

Among the 500 patients in one independent observational study, women who received the Labor Guard Perianal Stabilizer had 86.7% fewer non-scheduled cesarean births compared to patients who completed childbirth without the device. In a separate prospective, randomized, clinical trial, the c-section rate of Labor Guard Perianal Stabilizer patients was 12.0% compared to 39.6% for control patients. Cesarean results for both clinical studies were statistically significant.
