I only planned to use it for the early stages but it was so good I left it on

Published by under Birth stories

I used the TENS machine during labour and felt it helped enormously. It eased my pain and helped as a distraction. I had planned to only use it for early labour, thinking I would need an epidural later. However it was so good I left it on for the whole birth. I had no drugs, not even gas and air. I would highly recommend Labour TENS to all expectant mothers.

Many thanks,

Victoria Stoker.

I used Labour TENS for back pain and during labour

Published by under Birth stories

I used Labour TENS in the last couple of weeks of my pregnancy for back pain. I was in fact using it when I first went into labour.

I didn’t use any other form of pain relief during my labour. I had a quick and easy labour of 2.5 hours. Thanks for the Labour TENS it was most helpful. Labour TENS is an excellent product and I will recommend other women to use it.

I didn’t think I could go 7 hours with no other pain relief

Published by under Birth stories

I just wanted to say a big THANK-YOU. Labour TENS helped me get through the first 7 hours of labour. I had a long 14 hour labour and eventually needed an epidural. However I’m happy with the outcome because I did not think I could go 7 hours with no other pain relief.

I will be recommending it to every pregnant woman I know and will hire it again myself in the future.

Thank-you.

Labour TENS helped me focus on each contraction to manage the pain

Published by under Birth stories

I used the Labour TENS machine from the onset of labour. It was extremely effective in assisting me to focus on each contraction and manage the pain. For the first 8-10 hour period the TENS was fantastic.

Unfortunately after many hours of labouring I had not dilated enough and had to take the option of drugs and an epidural. This didn’t work and in the end I had a cesarean section.

I have recommended Labour TENS to all my friends and will use it again for the next pregnancy.

I remained calm and in control during my 15hour labour

Published by under Birth stories

I had decided to have a natural birth as I did not want any drugs to affect my baby. I hired the Labour TENS machine hoping it would assist in helping me achieve a natural drug free birth. I wasn’t disappointed. Even though I had a 15 hour long labour the TENS was wonderful. All went well until the last 1.5 hours. My baby was in a posterior position and wouldn’t turn. This was causing me a huge amount of back pain which was eased by the Labour TENS.

Thanks to the Labour TENS machine I was able to last throughout labour with no other pain relief. In the end my obstetrician had no other option than to give me an episiotomy and use forceps to help my baby out. The TENS machine was wonderful. I couldn’t have coped without it. I have no hesitation in recommending this to anyone.

Thank you for your help. The service was was great. Labour TENS helped me remain calm and in control throughout the labour.

Thank-you.
