A Randomized, Controlled Study to Evaluate the Safety and Effectiveness of the Materna Prep Device to Dilate the Vaginal Canal in Preparation for Vaginal Delivery
Study Type/Phase: Phase 2
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of the Materna Prep Device in reducing pelvic muscle injuries and shortening the length of active labor during vaginal delivery. The Materna Prep Device is a single-use, semi-automated dilator used during the first phase of labor. By slowly stretching the vagina and surrounding pelvic tissues during labor, the device dictates the strain rate of the tissue during labor. A randomized control group will undergo labor with a non-expanding version of the Materna Prep Device and receive standard of care practices. Currently, there are no approved devices or standardized procedures to pre-stretch the pelvic tissues in preparation for vaginal delivery.
