Childbirth and Pelvic Floor Training Products

German innovation is making childbirth easier in New Zealand. The EPI-NO Childbirth Trainer reduces the risks of tearing and episiotomy (stitches) during natural childbirth. Used early in pregnancy to strengthen the pelvic floor muscles, EPI-NO exercises then change at 37 Weeks to prepare the perineum. A Melbourne, Australia Study concluded "EPI-NO is beneficial in decreasing damage to the perineum during normal vaginal birth" (Prof. G.Kovacs, Monash Medical). More about EPI-NO

  • I first heard about the EPI-NO training device during antenatal classes from several instructors, all recommending the use of the EPI-NO training device, saying how the mother had an easier birth, shortened 2nd stage of labor and how less likely they were to have a tear or episiotomy.

  • The EPI-NO itself was generally easy to use after a few sessions. Inserting the EPI-NO and inflating it helped me to feel that my body would be able to do its job during the birthing process. I felt I had made a good decision to use EPI-NO and was thrilled not to need stitches

  • I successfully delivered my first child with no stitches or tears, after training with EPI-NO. During my second pregnancy I was advised by my doctor that I'd need a Caesarean as my baby was in the breech position. I began training with EPI-NO anyway, to keep up the strength in my pelvic floor. Days before scheduled Caesarean my baby turned, which meant I could have a natural delivery after all.

  • Thanks to EPI-NO, our daughter was delivered within only 2 pushes inside the delivery room. Sarah, our daughter, was very healthy and active right after birth. I had no cut, no tear and no need for any stitches whatsoever.

  • I wanted to write in praise of EPI-NO. I delivered a healthy full-term baby three days ago and my second stage lasted less than a minute with no tearing! This was my second birth and I had an episiotomy last time (and wasn't very happy about that fact).

  • With following the instructions of EPI-NO to the letter, plus asking the midwife to support the perineum with hot washer and compression during delivery, I was able to produce a 4.1kg boy with no need for episiotomy or stitches. I was ecstatic and the midwives at Calvery hospital in Canberra were impressed.

  • I was able to stretch my perineum to 9.5cm over the 3 week period. I found EPI-NO easier than perineal massage which was too difficult around my bump. EPI-NO gave me confidence that I would not tear, and I didn’t

  • I have recommended EPI-NO childbirth preparation to over 1000 expectant women in my practice and believe this product offers women the best preparation for, and increased confidence in a natural vaginal birth.
    In my experience women training with EPI-NO have a better perineal outcome and are less likely to suffer from the complications associated with perineal injuries following the birth.
    I am a strong advocate of natural childbirth and believe this product bridges the confidence gap between a vaginal birth and the elective Caesarean.

  • Looking back, I am so glad I did all the preparation that I did. In fact I have no idea how anyone gets through birth without it! I would certainly recommend EPI-NO to other women
