Great service, very satisfied

Published by under Birth stories

I was very pleased to have heard about Labour TENS and use it during my labour.  My waters broke around 1am on Tuesday and I went into active labour at 10pm that night.  I started using Labour TENS from that time all through the time at home and during the trip to the hospital.  I continued to use it for about 12 hours until I decided to get into the shower.  As my baby needed a forceps delivery I chose to have an epidural.

I was very satisfied with the Labour TENS for the time I was using it and would recommend it to anyone who is considering natural pain relief in labour.

Thank you for such a great service too!

Loved it!

This was my second natural birth greatly assisted by the Labour TENS machine.  It helped me cope with extra back pain caused by a posterior labour.

Thanks again, I loved it!

Using Labour TENS was very helpful…

Published by under Birth stories

Thanks Labour TENS. I found using the Labour TENS machine very helpful during my labour. I gave birth to a baby boy totally naturally, in the water, which is exactly what I wanted.

Your service was very prompt and convenient.

Thanks again.

TENS helps create positive birthing experience

Published by under Birth stories

I couldn’t have done it without the TENS – I loved it!

It gave me something to focus on.

I used it through all stages of labour until our daughter was born.  I would highly recommend using the TENS and will definitely be using it again if we have a third baby. 

The TENS assisted in helping the birth experience to be a very positive one.

Labour TENS provided fantastic relief in difficult labour

Published by under Birth stories

I had a difficult labour process that went on for 3 days (54 hours). We had intended for a drug free, intervention free birth. As my baby was in a bad position my contractions would plateau and very difficult to shorten…. though regular and constant for days.  The Labour TENS was fantastic relief, and I was able to remove the electrode pads and re-apply them very easily after baths and showers.

Great product!! Many thanks.

I had a natural birth with no other pain relief…. only the Labour TENS

Published by under Birth stories

My contractions started 38 hours prior to the birth of my baby, and were all concentrated within my lower back. I started using the Labour TENS 2 hours after onset and continued with a few short breaks until 4 hours before birth. All up I would have used the Labour TENS for about 26 hours, in conjunction with short bursts of heat therapy (hot pack and hot showers).

The TENS machine allowed me to breathe and move through contractions, and even sleep for short periods, despite the pain in my back throughout. I really liked the fact that I could set the TENS to a level where it helped with the pain, but still allowed me to feel the build up, peak and lessening of each contraction.

By the time I got to the birthing suite and was examined, I was 8cm dilated, which surprised me as I was still able to breathe through contractions. My doctor and midwives also commented at how well I was managing the pain given how far along I was. Although I couldn’t use the TENS at the end due to monitoring, I have no doubt that using it for so long meant I was able to carry through without further pain relief.

My obstetrician commented the next day that for a first baby, who was posterior and 4.055kg, he was amazed I did it without additional pain relief……

I honestly feel I owe most of that to the Labour TENS machine! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!
