Labour TENS intensified the effects of the gas which meant I only used a small amount, and stopped me feeling nauseated.

I found the labour TENS machine very easy to use and extremely useful. I used the machine alone when labouring at home and when I first went to the hospital. As the labour intensified I used gas and air in conjunction with the TENS machine. This helped greatly as the tens machine enhanced the gas effects, which allowed me to have the gas on a very low percentage. This helped as the gas made me feel nauseous when up high. At no stage did I get near using the TENS machine at full power. I would recommend trying the Labour TENS to anyone.

I took the labour TENS off at one point to get in the shower and immediately wanted it back on.

My baby was 5 days overdue and I had to be induced. I started using the labour TENS from the beginning. I found it helped immensely. I took it off at one point to get in the shower and immediately wanted it back on. About half way through my labour I decided to try some gas but it made me vomit. I went through the rest of the labour with the labour TENS only. When it came to the pushing stage, I found I actually enjoyed it! six pushes and my baby was born.

I felt mostly calm and in control throughout the whole labour…

Thanks for your service  –Labour TENS was recommended to me by my Obstetrician. I found the labour TENS extremely helpful. I am very satisfied to have had an active, drug free birth. I don’t think I could have done this without the TENS machine. I wish I’d heard of your TENS before as with my first birth I had an epidural, episiotomy and vacuum extraction. This time round it was all completely natural, I felt mostly calm and in control throughout the whole labour.

I will recommend you to my friends,

Regards, Samantha.
