Why Dianatal® Obstetric gel?
The process of childbirth is divided into two stages. During the first stage, the dilation stage,
the uterine cervix opens. When the cervix is fully dilated (10 cm), the so-called expulsion
stage (second stage) starts.
With every vaginal birth, the mother has to expend a great deal of energy in order to deliver her baby.
If the delivery takes a long time, the energy levels of both the mother and the unborn baby drop noticeably.
Although the baby is surrounded by amniotic fluid and sebum (vernix caseosa), the baby does not glide easily through the birth canal due to the friction between the vagina and the
The friction between the baby and the vaginal wall is very high, but this can easily be reduced with a sterile Obstetric gel: Dianatal®
- Dianatal® Obstetric Gel forms a smooth bioadhesive film on the vagina for that Baby glides easier through the vagina, which serves to reduce friction.
The gel significantly reduces both the static friction
(incl. that occuring after long pauses between contractions) and the dynamic friction.
Dianatal® makes childbirth safer, faster and less painful. Dianatal® protects the Baby as well as the vagina,
the pelvic floor and the perineum.
Dianatal® has been developed in Switzerland and is especially designed for the facilitation of vaginal births.
