Labour TENS was main pain relief method

Published by under Birth stories

I was able to have a natural vaginal birth with Labour TENS as my main pain relief method.

I would really recommend it.

No drugs….. nothing…. except Labour TENS

Published by under Birth stories

Our first baby – and she is so gorgeous – 5 hours labour with only 30mins of pushing.

No drugs…. nothing….. except Labour TENS for most of the early and mid labour, followed by a hot bath.

Transition from 3cm to baby in my arms took about 2 hours!!

No tearing….. went home 36 hours later with a beautiful baby girl.

I found Labour TENS to be very useful

Published by under Birth stories

I started using Labour TENS early on in labour and found it to be very useful, mainly as a distraction from contraction pains. The ability to increase the strength throughout my 13 hour labour was very helpful to me, and allowed me to get through with the use of gas and air also.

I would definitely use this product again, and recommend it and the Labour TENS company to other people.

I placed the TENS machine on my back….HEAVEN!!

Published by under Birth stories

I just wanted to say a massive ‘THANK YOU’ for providing me with such an amazing product.

I hired your Labour TENS machine as I wanted to attempt a VBAC (Vaginal Birth After Caesarean) with my second baby. I wanted to avoid any intervention (drugs, epidural etc) that I felt hindered my labour last time. Also, my family have a history of back labours even if the baby is in the correct position.

Your prompt delivery was appreciated as I ended up going into labour 9 days early.  I had to go into hospital for monitoring after my waters broke, but the pain was bearable.  Once the pain started to intensify my hubby placed the Labour TENS machine on my back…. HEAVEN!!  It was enough relief to work through the contractions with breathing, but I could still feel when they started and finished.  I ended up turning the TENS machine up to 40mA by the end and had it running whilst pushing.

I ended up delivering a healthy baby girl in just over 3 hours without using any other forms of pain relief. 

I will most certainly be recommending you to my friends.

The Labour TENS machine was my saviour.

Published by under Birth stories

The Labour TENS machine was my saviour…. having existing back pain issues prior to becoming pregnant. …. I had used a TENS for pain relief before.

The machine was easy to use and the order and return process was so user friendly.

Thank you.

I cannot recommend the Labour TENS highly enough….

Published by under Birth stories

The Labour TENS was a fantastic aid during my labour. I honestly do not know if I could have achieved the drug free natural labour I had without it.

I had a completely different experience with the birth of my second child thanks to using the TENS machine. It was peaceful, and beautiful and I delivered our baby at the birth centre with the aid of the centre’s midwife, and my sister (also a midwife), and my husband.

I was able to labour at home for the majority of the time, which is what I wanted. Half an hour after we arrived at the birth centre out baby was born!

I cannot recommend the Labour TENS highly enough and wish more women were made aware of it during pregnancy.

Thanks.

I found TENS to be useful….

Published by under Birth stories

I found the Labour TENS machine to be useful right up until my baby was born. It may have been partly psychological, however it helped me immensely with pain management.
