labour TENS was excellent for relieving the pain -just one push of the boost button provides instant relief.

Published by under Birth stories

I ordered on the Internet which I found very easy to organise. The labour TENS was excellent for relieving the pain. Especially the boost button -just one push provides instant relief. It was great to use early in labour whilst I was at home and brilliant for the drive into hospital. I had a drug free natural birth thanks to the TENS -I couldn’t have coped without it. It great value for money too -I think all women should use it.

Thanks Sharon. Perth

This was my 3rd time using the labour TENS machine -I had no drugs or intervention -I’m recommending it to everyone.

Published by under Birth stories

Using the Labour TENS helped me immensely as my labour was very fast. The Labour TENS helped me to stay in full control during the final stages of labour. My husband knew where I was at and he helped me by turning up the TENS when I needed it. He also turned the boost button on as the wave of each contraction hit. The labour TENS was worth it’s weight ion gold as it really did make the labour pain bearable which meant I had a natural birth, with no drugs or intervention.

This was my 3rd time using the labour TENS machine and I would recommend it to everyone. Thanks so much to the team at Labour TENS -your product is truly magical. I am recommending you to everyone I know whose’s having a baby.

I found it useful for after the caesarean and great for back pain after birth.

Published by under Birth stories

I had an emergency caesarean and was given pethidine just before the epidural so unfortunately I had no time and didn’t get to use the TENS for birth. However, I found it useful for after surgery and it was great for relieving back pain after birth. I found the Labour TENS easy to use and very good value. Thank you.

I’m a midwife at Manly Hospital and I can personally recommend Labour TENS -It’s fantastic.

Published by under Birth stories

Thank you –Labour TENS was my saving grace. Before I put the TENS on I was at home thinking ‘I can’t get through this without drugs’. Then I put the labour TENS on and instantly it really helped with the pain. . I decided to go to the hospital and by the time I got there the TENS was working very well. I used it from when I was 4cm dilated until the birth. Once I put it on there was no taking it off me -I could not have got through my labour drug free without it.

I had a drug free natural birth I didn’t even need gas and air!. Labour TENS scored 10/10 for ease of use, 10/10 for pain relief, 10/10 for ease of ordering and payment, and 10/10 for value for money.

I’m a midwife at Manly Hospital and I think it’s fantastic. I usually teach women about TENS but now I have first hand experience. I can and will personally recommend Labour TENS to the women I teach in my antenatal classes. It is so underused and very under rated as a natural pain relief tool.

Thank you Heather for your labour TENS.

It was so good at I just made it to the hospital in time to start pushing

Published by under Birth stories

Thanks. I ordered online which was very convenient. I think the Labour TENS almost worked too well as we only just made it to the hospital in time to start pushing. It was easy to use, and very helpful for pain relief as I had no other drugs. Great value for money.

I will definitely recommend this to any mother to be.

The only help I had was the labour TENS and gas.

Published by under Birth stories

I thought that the labour TENS machine was excellent for my birth experience.  Baby Angus was in a huge hurry, when I finally realised at 6am that I was in labour, my husband applied the Labour TENS machine. I was at the hospital by 7.40am and Angus was delivered at 9.01am.
The only help I had was the labour TENS and gas.
I’ll be recommending it to my friends.

Do I need to wipe my skin with alcohol swabs before putting on the electrodes?

Hi Heather,

Just wanted to ask a question. Before application of the labour tens is it better to wipe the area with the alcohol swabs or there is nothing we need to do.

Regards

ANSWER: Thanks for the email. Good question. I don’t think it’s necessary as long as your skin is clean, dry and has no products on it. You only need to use an alcohol swab if the skin is greasy or has products/oils on it. After all alcohol swabs are not good for your skin and can cause more problems. It’s best just to wash if needed with a mild soap.

regards, Heather.

Labour TENS was recommended to me by the midwives at the hospital

Published by under Birth stories

Labour TENS was recommended to me by the midwives at the hospital. I ordered online as it was easiest. I found the TENS was great for the beginning and middle stages of labour. I found it easy to use and helpful- especially when I used it with gas. I found it a good distraction and I would definitely use it again. I’m very happy with your service and I will tell others about you.

Thanks. Sydney Customer

Labour TENS made the first stage of labour far less scary!

Published by under Birth stories

I heard about Labour TENS from a friend in the antenatal class. I ordered online at the website which made it easy to order and pay for. Labour TENS made the first stage of labour far less scary! I found Labour TENS very easy to use, and good value. I had a drug free birth, natural -the boost button was great!

I felt I was able to do something about the pain

Published by under Birth stories

I found the labour TENS very helpful. It was easy to use, and very good value for money. This was my first baby and I didn’t know what to expect. The machine made me feel like I was able to do something about the pain; i.e pressing the boost button. My labour progressed quicker than I expected so I only used gas towards the end.
