I’ll be recommending Labour TENS to my friends…

Published by under Birth stories

Labour TENS got me through my early labour to about 5 – 6 cms.  Exceptionally easy to order, use, and return. Thank you for making it easy. I’ll be recommending it to my friends.

Using the TENS….. resulted in me having a Natural Birth & no need for drugs

Published by under Birth stories

I thought the Labour TENS was very useful during early labour. As the labour progressed I had to keep increasing the intensity as the contractions became stronger and I felt that I couldn’t feel anything from the TENS, so had to increase the Boost & Rest rate frequently.

Towards the end, as the contractions became more intense, the TENS didn’t seem to help and I wanted to take it off, however, I think it was well worth the hire of the machine…. as by the time the pain seemed to be getting too much, it was time to push!

Using the TENS from a very early stage with heat packs resulted in me having a Natural Birth and no need for drugs. If I were to fall pregnant again the TENS would be at the Top of my “To Do” List , ready for early labour!!

3 Day Labour

Published by under Birth stories

I was in labour on and off for 3 days.

The Labour TENS machine was helpful until established labour commenced at which point I needed extra pain relief as my baby had moved to a more painful position.  Eventually I needed a Caesarean.

All in all it was great for the first part of my labour.

Thank you Smile

I feel Labour TENS made each contraction more effective

Published by under Birth stories

I wish I had used labour TENS for my previous 3 labours. It really helped with the pain and I feel it made each contraction more effective, thus reducing the length of the labour.

I will definitely be using it again if I have another baby, and I will definitely be recommending Labour TENS to others.

Natural Birth with Labour TENS

Published by under Birth stories

Many thanks, I will always sing the praises of Labour TENS.

It helped me manage nearly 24 hours of pre-labour followed by a very quick second stage.  I went from 4cm to fully dilated in 1 hour 10 minutes and my baby boy was born 10 minutes later.

The biggest thing for me was that I was attempting a VBAC breech birth so an epidural was out of the question so I really had to rely on the TENS and gas.

TENS saved me and allowed me to achieve a natural birth.
