The boost button was fantastic-so easy to control. I don’t think I could have had a drug free natural birth without it.

The boost button was fantastic-so easy to control. Great in terms of feeling you are doing something proactive and involved my husband as I put him at the controls and just issued instructions. I don’t think I could have had a drug free natural birth without it.

Thanks, Sally.

Labour TENS really helped me to achieve the birth I dreamt about

Published by under Birth stories

The Labour TENS was recommended by the Women and Children’s hospital in Adelaide. On the day my water’s broke 9pm and contractions started at 11.30pm. The contractions were 7 minutes apart for 3 hours. I used the labour TENS machine and slept the whole time using the boost button when needed. The contractions stopped completely then began again Tuesday midday. I put the TENS machine on and once again slept for three hours until the contractions were really intense and 20 minutes apart. By 5pm the pain was coming in waves one on top of the other, but I found the constant buzz of the TENS distracting enough to get through the pain. I was at the hospital by 6pm pushing. I had a water birth which was calm serene and peaceful. If I’d had an epidural or pethidine this would not have been possible. I believe the TENS machine really helped me to achieve the birth I dreamt about.

Thanks Heather and the labour TENS team,

Highly recommended –I loved the feeling of having more control over my chosen pain relief and birthing process.

Published by under Birth stories

My midwife recommended you to me. The Labour TENS allowed me to labour at home for almost all my first stage, and to birth my baby naturally without the need for any medical pain relief. Things went so well I was able to leave the hospital six hours after the birth. Highly recommended –I loved the feeling of having more control over my chosen pain relief and birthing process.

The labour TENS machine was very effective in keeping me focused and able to work through each contraction

Published by under Birth stories

The labour TENS was recommended by a friend in the Antenatal class. It was not just a distraction from the pain, I found the Labour TENS machine very effective in keeping me focused and able to work through each contraction. So much so, that I prioritised keeping the TENS machine strapped on over using the bath/shower for pain relief. I loved it! I am recommending it to anyone I know who is about to give birth.

I used no other pain relief because along with good positioning, breathing and my wonderful support people the TENS machine was enough

Published by under Birth stories

Labour TENS was recommended to us by our support person who is  a student midwife. With my first baby I wanted to have as natural a birth as possible. Luckily for me I was able to have a “dream labour” by using only the Labour TENS machine throughout my labour and birth. In fact I used no other pain relief because along with good positioning, breathing and my wonderful support people the TENS machine was enough. Our baby girl was born after 5 hours and 10 minutes, thanks for a great product.

Although I was open to other forms of pain relief I didn’t need it, the Labour TENS made it possible for me to have the natural birth I wanted

Published by under Birth stories

When i first tried the labour TENS machine before labour, I wasn’t sure I liked the sensation and thought I may not end up using it. When the day came though I gave it a try and it turned out to be fantastic! I used it in my labour from start to finish and it was a great comfort while I was having stitches. Although I was open to other forms of pain relief I didn’t need it, the Labour TENS made it possible for me to have the natural birth I wanted. I am proud of myself and my little baby girl and will definitely recommend the Labour TENS machine to all my friends.

I felt very in control using the labour TENS machine

Published by under Birth stories

I believe the Labour TENS machine was wonderful, as my labour was quick (4 hours). I felt very in control using the labour TENS and was able to use the boost as I needed it. I turned the intensity up and down accordingly as I progressed. I would definitely use the labour TENS machine again and I’d recommend it to anyone.

TENS machine very helpful in giving me something else to concentrate on other than the contractions, as well as providing effective pain relief

Published by under Birth stories

I used the Labour TENS machine from early labour and right through to the birth as advised. I found the TENS machine very helpful in giving me something else to concentrate on other than the contractions, as well as providing effective pain relief. The booster button became a very good squeezing aid in the final stage of labour too! I only used gas in addition to the TENS machine and that was really only to have something to focus on during the contractions. I would recommend this product to anyone as it’s easy to use and very effective method of pain relief during labour.

Labour TENS very effective –I didn’t need any other pain relief

Published by under Birth stories

I heard about your service through an internet forum. I found the Labour TENS was very effective as a natural pain relief. My contractions were every 5 mins from 12.30am until I went to the hospital at 7am. I have no doubt that I would not have lasted as long without it. I didn’t need any other pain relief, at hospital I was able to jump in the spa. I would definitely recommend you to all my friends.

I felt better knowing that i had some control during my labour

Published by under Birth stories

The hospital antenatal clinic recommended your TENS machine. The Labour TENS eased the pain of each contraction. I felt better knowing that i had some control during my labour.  I found I had better pain relief using the TENS machine combined with a heat pack. I would recommend using the Labour TENS machine because it offered me great drug free pain relief and is non-invasive. I was able to have a natural birth with no drugs thanks to the TENS machine.
