Natural drug free induced birth with Labour TENS

Published by under Birth stories

The midwives recommended your labour TENS. I was induced around 2pm and our beautiful baby girl arrived at 6.55pm. Due to 2 prostaglandins my contractions were extremely strong a close together, so i didn’t get much of a break at all. I used the TENS machine from the beginning right through until I got in the bath around 4.30pm. They were the only two pain relief options i used. I cannot stress enough how very much the Labour TENS helped with my pain management. I was truly impressed and would recommend it to anyone who plans to have a natural birth.

thank you,

Clare

Labour TENS worked wonders for my 4 days of labour

Published by under Birth stories

My labour lasted 4 days. The TENS machine worked wonders in these early days, and is the reason I lasted and persisted with a natural labour as long as I did. In the end the complications meant I needed a caesarean, despite this it was a wonderful birth, and the Labour TENS was a great part of this experience. Thanks very much, I’ll pass on your info to friends.

2.5 hour labour with no drugs and no intervention

Published by under Birth stories

labour TENS was recommended by a work colleague, and also the Frances Perry House in VIC. I was one of those lucky first time mum’s having a natural birth in 2.5hours with no use of drugs, no other pain relief and no intervention.

When i woke up in the morning the contractions started, so I strapped on the electrodes and used the TENS machine straight away. It was very easy to use and understand. By early afternoon the contractions became unpleasant so we went to the hospital. I was 8cm dilated and not long afterwards, Charlotte was born. All through this experience the TENS machine occupied me and i didn’t feel the need at any time to use drugs.

Short and sweet labour

Published by under Birth stories

This is the second time I’ve hired a Labour TENS through your company and again I am very pleased with the service and the product. The last labour was induced and I had the TENS machine on from the time they inserted the drip, the intensity of the TENS led to my energy levels still being great to cope with transition and 2.5 hours pushing. This labour was short and sweet. We arrived at hospital late after my waters broke. The midwives advised we get some sleep as not much would happen before tomorrow. By 3am my contractions were steady at 3mins apart, by 4am it was uncomfortable. I slowly increased the intensity of the TENS, and used the boost button over the next 2 hours, and moved things along by bouncing on the birth ball. By 7am I was fully dilated, and by 7.18 we welcomed Benjamin into the world. We had a wonderful positive birthing experience with zero intervention, and the TENS machine played a huge part in that. Thank you we look forward to using it again!
