Brilliant for me

Published by under Birth stories

The Labour TENS was brilliant for me.  If my baby hadn’t needed assistance emerging, I would have used the TENS machine as my only pain relief.  I used it from about 8 contractions/2 hours into my labour until just before a spinal block was administered for a forceps delivery.

In summary, I laboured for 15 hours and pushed for 1.5 hours with just the Labour TENS.

Used TENS all the way through labour!

Published by under Birth stories

I used the Labour TENS machine all the way through my labour and delivery as my only form of pain relief.  It helped with the pain until transition then it became my distraction.

I wished I had used Labour TENS for my first child’s birth.

I cannot speak highly enough of Labour TENS

Published by under Birth stories

I cannot speak highly enough of Labour TENS. The sensation of the machine is so pleasant, and was very effective in blocking my labour pain. Labour TENS is so easy to use that I was even able to hand the controller over to my husband when the contractions became really intense and close together (no gaps between). I delivered our beautiful baby boy, Henry (9lb 5 oz), in 7 hours using only the Labour TENS. My labour was intense right from the start as my waters broke 24 hours prior to active labour commencing.  I honestly believe that I would not have been able to achieve the natural, drug-free labour I had hoped for without Labour TENS. Sincere thanks for providing a fantastic product and service!

I would recommend Labour TENS to anyone wanting natural pain relief…

Published by under Birth stories

I have used a Labour TENS machine now 3 times…. for the births of my 3 children, and would recommend it to anyone wanting natural pain relief.

Here is my story:  I was woken at 6am by my son asking if it was time to get up! After getting him & his brother up my back was sorer than normal, so I heated a wheat pack and went back to bed telling my husband I think I am about to go into labour.

30 minutes later I started contracting…. 3 minutes apart. We put the boys in the car to grandma’s.  I had a shower & rang the midwife and finished packing a bag. My husband attached the Labour TENS machine to help with the pain. At 7.30am we left for the hospital…. as soon as we arrived the midwife assessed me and turned the birth pool on, but it was too late. Already fully dilated… my waters broke only a few minutes later and 3 pushes after that…. baby Lily was born!! She is just gorgeous

Labour TENS provided me with the pain relief I needed….

Published by under Birth stories

I found using your Labour TENS machine in early labour helped me manage the pain and avoided any medical pain relief. The baby was in the posterior position and so my back pain in labour was terrible, but the TENS machine provided me with the pain relief I needed to push through! I had my beautiful baby boy, Jacob, on 9th August… arriving one week early.

Thanks again. I will recommend to any pregnant ladies.

I would highly recommend Labour TENS

Published by under Birth stories

This was the second time I used Labour TENS.  For the first labour I used the TENS machine for about 3/4 of the labour. This time I used the TENS machine right up until I had to take it off to get into the bath to push.

I found Labour TENS very good and used it instead of other pain relief. I would highly recommend it.

Drug Free Labour

Published by under Birth stories

My husband put the Labour TENS Machine on me before we left home and it took the edge off my contractions during the 20 minute car journey to the hospital.  The Labour TENS was amazing, it really helped me to deal with my contractions when they were coming thick and fast. 

When I think of my labour I am so proud of how my baby entered the world, no drugs to make him drowsy or affect his breathing.  I truly believe that I couldn’t have got through my labour drug free if it weren’t for the TENS Machine.

I recommend using a Labour TENS machine to every woman who wants to make their labour more manageable whether you have drugs or not.  It will get you through the pain and closer to holding your baby in your arms.
