I was induced and went through the whole labour with just the TENS.

Published by under Birth stories

Thanks. I was really impressed with your company. I rang your support line and was given some great advice on how to use it. The Labour TENS machine was brilliant. I was induced with the drip so we started the TENS straight away. I went through the whole of my labour with just the TENS right through to the pushing phase. It was an intense labour of just three hours but the TENS was a godsend. I didn’t want to let go of the boost button -it was like a friend!

The community midwives in Darwin are very impressed with the labour TENS and have been recommending it. I’ve been telling everyone how good it was and when I have my second I’ll be getting the Labour TENS again.

Again-Thank you.

The hospital assumed I was not in active labour as I was not in a great deal of pain….in fact I was 7.5cm dilated!

Published by under Birth stories

I heard about Labour TENS as it was recommended through my hospital antenatal class.

I went through the majority of my labour at home during which time I used the labour TENS only. I think the Labour TENS acted as a distraction and allowed me to go on my own for longer.

When I made it back into hospital It was assumed I was not in active labour as I was not in a great deal of pain. I continued to use the TENS until I was checked and found to be 7.5cm dilated. The TENS allowed me to get to this point without any other pain relief.

I was induced and found Labour TENS very helpful pain relief for 11 hours.

Published by under Birth stories

Thanks Heather. My labour was induced -it took 16hours from 12pm -4am. I used the labour TENS for the first 11 hours and found it very helpful in relieving the pain 10/10. I had an epidural for the last 4 hours of labour. I would not have gotten that far without the TENS. Labour TENS was easy to use 10/10, easy to order 10/10, and good value for money.

labour TENS helped me birth a 9lb 6oz baby girl without drugs

Published by under Birth stories

Thank you so much for the wonderful service you provide. The Labour TENS machine arrived exactly on time (which was good, seeing as my baby did too). The labour TENS machine was really easy to use, and ordering was simple. I started using it as soon as my labour began as instructed, which I think is really great advice.

I’m sure the TENS machine is what enabled me to birth a 9lb 6oz baby girl without any drugs. It enabled me to have a calm natural birth I had been hoping for. I found it very helpful for pain relief, and great value for money.

I found that I could cope with the contractions if I pressed the boost button as the contraction was starting (not later at the peak). Just thought I’d pass this on in case it might help other women.

I can also recommend acupressure while using the Labour TENS machine -my partner pressed on acupressure points on my lower back. I leaned back into his hands which took the effort out of it for him. It was remarkable how much pain relief this provided.

Thanks again for the Labour TENS machine -it was a godsend.

I have used Labour TENS for each of my four labours and found it very effective…

Published by under Birth stories

I have used the Labour TENS for each of my four labours and found it very effective in coping with contractions. Especially when you are in the earlier stages of labour at home. I find it allows you to remain at home for longer, where you can be more relaxed.

My last two births have been water births so I wore the labour TENS up until entering the water, which provides a lot of relief.

Using Labour TENS allowed me to cope and have a natural labour avoiding drugs.  I found it very helpful for relieving pain and easy to use. I would recommend it strongly to anyone wanting a natural birth.

Labour TENS made the contractions far more manageable

Published by under Birth stories

I was impressed with the Labour TENS machine and would recommend it to friends. It made the contractions far more manageable. Unfortunately after 30 hours of on-off labour I stopped progressing due to baby’s position and had to have a cesarean section and therefore an epidural. Had this not been the case I think the Labour TENS and possibly gas and air would’ve been enough pain relief.

Thanks, Charlotte.

Labour TENS was fantastic-I didn’t even need gas!

Published by under Birth stories

Labour TENS was brilliant! It helped throughout the whole of my labour; bar the last 45 minutes. I had a short labour of 4 hours but it was VERY INTENSE. Labour TENS was fantastic, I didn’t even need gas. Ratings; I found it  very easy to use, very easy to order, 10/10 for relieving pain and good value for money.

Thanks heaps. We are now enjoying our beautiful son.
