I was very happy with the Labour TENS

Published by under Birth stories

I was very happy with the Labour TENS machine. I got through most of the labour with it, and was dilated 6cm when I arrived at hospital thanks to the TENS. Will recommend to everyone.

Thank you

I didn’t need to use any drugs with Labour TENS

Published by under Birth stories

I used a Labour TENS machine with both pregnancies, and didn’t need to use any drugs throughout the labours. Highly recommend the Labour TENS machine. I have given info out to my friends who are expecting as well.

Labour TENS…. definitely worth the money!!

Published by under Birth stories

I thought the Labour TENS machine was great and even helped with just the distraction of pushing buttons on it!!

I was glad to get through another labour with no pain relieving drugs.

Definitely worth the money!!

Labour TENS took the edge off the contractions

Published by under Birth stories

Labour TENS is wonderful for taking the focus off the contractions.

I used TENS right up to the pushing stage, when I asked for it to be taken off. I found that the Labour TENS took the edge off the contractions and enabled me to be mobile during labour.

I recommend putting it on as soon as contractions start, so you get used to the tingling sensation.

Labour TENS – a clever, simple… yet so effective…. drug free idea

Published by under Birth stories

My labour was very slow…. it began 2 days prior to my baby being delivered. I found the Labour TENS machine AMAZING!! I only used gas once at the hospital and it was extremely effective with the TENS machine. Had my labour not been so long and slow I’m extremely confident I would not have had an epidural….. but because I had been in labour 18 hours and was getting tired it was suggested that I should take a rest.

The TENS machine got me through a day and a half at home, and I will recommend it to anyone.

Thank you for such a clever, simple, and yet so effective drug free idea.

Service & ease of hire was excellent

Published by under Birth stories

I think the TENS was a useful distraction during labour. Anything that helps even a little is worthwhile!! Unfortunately eventually had to have a c-section after prolonged labour. However if I were to have a natural labour again I would re-hire the TENS machine.

Service & ease of hire was EXCELLENT – Thank you.

With TENS I enjoyed a natural birth

Published by under Birth stories

This was my first baby. Went into labour at home with contractions roughly 1 minute apart. Had a shower during early ones, but then put on Labour TENS as they got stronger. Loved the TENS and used it at home, in the car, and at hospital. Arrived at hospital 2-3 hours after labour started and was over 9cm already!! Definitely feel TENS helped me reach that point. Used TENS at hospital until 10cm & pushing (also had gas at this point). Then took machine & gas off and laboured (pushed) for 2 more hours until our baby was born!  Labour was less than 6 hours in total. TENS definitely got me through feeling quite relaxed and enjoying a drug free, natural birth.

Thank you

Labour TENS is money well spent

Published by under Birth stories

I was pleased to have the labour TENS to assist with managing the contractions. I felt it really does help to manage the strong sensations, particularly up until transition. I am pleased this product is available to women giving birth. It would be great if more women were aware of it’s availability. It can help you to feel more in control of, and as if you are managing, your pain, without having to use drugs. My birth was pleasing and felt as if it was very quick. It was 6 hours and I arrived at the hospital ready to deliver.

Labour TENS assisted me to feel relief with after labour pains whilst breastfeeding also.

I feel it was definitely money well spent.

With TENS I could focus on other things

Published by under Birth stories

I would definitely consider using the TENS machine during my next labour to assist with early labour pains – lower back pain especially. The Labour TENS got me to a point where I could focus on other things – breathing etc.. and not focus on the pain. It was an effective & healthy distraction.

TENS – Give it a go!!

Published by under Birth stories

I used Labour TENS for my third baby, and I wished I had used it for the other two.

My advice if you’re not sure whether to use a TENS machine – give it a go!!. It helps you feel more in control of your pain management.
