Labour TENS helped me feel in control of my contractions

Published by under Birth stories

My labour started at 5.30ammy contractions were 15mins apart. I put the TENS machine on which helped immediately as I felt in control of my contractions. By 7.30am the contractions were closer and my waters broke, so I went to the hospital. At 8am I gave birth, thanks to the Labour TENS machine I didn’t need any drugs. I had a natural vaginal birth and no pain relief except the TENS. I will be recommending your service to all the other pregnant women. Thank you again, you made my birth so much easier and more enjoyable.

I was able to stay at home so when I arrived at the birth centre I was already 9cm dilated.

I used the TENS machine in early labour. It was great, it really helped me through each contraction. I was able to stay at home as long as possible so when I arrived at the birth centre I was already 9cm dilated. I had a drug free natural delivery. I’m sure this wouldn’t of happened if it wasn’t for the labour TENS machine.  I am recommending you to everyone.

The boost button was easy to use and very effective for the contractions

Published by under Birth stories

I started using the labour TENS early on after having a bath. I started it on 10mA and found the boost button easy to use and very effective for during the contractions, which were every 5 mins. I arrived at hospital at 4am and told I was just 2cm dilated. We were given the option to go home and as the TENS machine was working well, I felt I could cope with the pain so we returned home. After a couple of hours the pain intensified so I ramped up the TENS machine and returned to hospital thinking I may need stronger pain killers as I thought I had a long way to go yet. However once at the hospital I was found to be fully dilated and entering the pushing phase. I concentrated on delivering my baby who was born at 8.30am. I was so pleased I had a drug free birth, I will use the labour TENS again in the future.

Thank you for the hire of this little machine. I found it helpful during the early stages of labour. It helped me to relax quickly after each contraction, so I actually had power naps whilst contractions were 5-15mins apart. This allowed me to conserve my energy for what was to come. Thanks again for the Labour TENS.
