Obstetric gel to help with natural childbirth

The first specially designed obstetric gel based on natural substances to help with natural and gentle childbirth. It encourages slipping, which reduces the friction between the birth canal and the baby. This can shorten the expulsion stage of the birth by up to 30%. It also protects the perineum, vagina and pelvic floor.

Ardo Natal Support - Syringe and Catheter

Application only by a qualified professional

Ardo Natal Support is applied during childbirth as part of a vaginal examination by a qualified professional (usually the midwife). No additional examination is needed. Using the flexible vaginal catheter or manually using one hand, the entire content of a syringe is distributed into the vaginal birth canal, starting below the cervix. More detailed information on the application is included in the instructions for use.
