Have used Labour TENS twice with great results!

Published by under Birth stories

I believe Labour TENS was the key to my smooth, safe and drug-free labour. It helped me to focus during contractions and definitely took the edge off the pain. Thank you for providing a product that gave me such a positive labour experience twice!!

Using Labour TENS allowed me to stay home as long as possible…

Published by under Birth stories

I used your Labour TENS for both my labours.  I went in the bath first…. and when pain level increased I gout out and used the Labour TENS both times. The pain relief allowed me to stay at home as long as possible. Very pleased.

My birth story

Published by under Birth stories

I went into labour on Tuesday morning after realising that I had in fact really begun my labour on Monday!

My contractions were 3 mins apart lasting 30sec – 1 min from 10am Tuesday. I began using the LabourTENS machine that afternoon at home. It was easy to use and definitely helped with the pain. We got to the hospital at 6pm.

I used the bath in between the TENS. At 2.30am I had to be monitored due to complications. I relied only on the LabourTENS machine for pain relief. My contractions were now every 2 mins lasting 1 min. We had to have an assisted birth with vacuum.  I was advised to have an epidural, however I was insistent I could manage without it .  The LabourTENS machine definitely made that possible. Our beautiful son was born at 8.08am on Wednesday!

Thank you.

4th baby, 4th time using TENS

Published by under Birth stories

This was our 4th baby and the 4th time I had used a TENS machine with no other pain relief required.

This make & model of obstetric TENS machine was by far the best I had ever used… it didn’t malfunction once.  I used it during spurious labour for 2 days and was still on the same battery by the time I gave birth.  It was easy to use, the arm strap was great and the hire cost very very reasonable.  I will certainly be recommending your service in the future.

Many thanks for making my last birth experience a positive one.

Fantastic Drug Free Natural Birth

Published by under Birth stories

I had a fantastic drug free natural birth and I found the Labour TENS to be a great help in achieving this goal. 

I spent the first 3 hours of my labour just using the Labour TENS and a stress ball to count through each contraction.

I arrived at hospital at 7pm with contractions 2 minutes apart and was 9cm dilated.  My Doctor broke my waters and as the pain increased I used stamping and vocalisation along with the TENS to control the pain.  After half an hour I was pushing and my baby girl was delivered 20 minutes later, a healthy 4kg! 

I think the Labour TENS helped me conserve energy in the early part of my labour so I had plenty of energy to stay active during the most difficult part.

Strong recommendation for Labour TENS!

Published by under Birth stories

I was planning to have a water birth and hire the Labour TENS machine just in case.

i started using the TENS at home and it worked so well that by the time we arrived at the hospital I was already 7cm dilated (what a surprise!).

3 hours later my midwife said I could start pushing and I had not even got into the bath!  I was afraid that the bath wouldn’t work as well as the TENS and therefore decided to abandon the idea of a water birth.

20 minutes later, we were holding our baby boy.

My labour was quite quick and much easier than I anticipated.  I did not use any drugs and I am very satisfied with the whole experience.

I cannot recommend Labour TENS strongly enough!

TENS allowed me to stay at home during labour

Published by under Birth stories

My back pain during contractions was managed with the Labour TENS machine .  I didn’t want an epidural and with the help of the TENS I didn’t need one.  I arrived at the hospital 7-8cm dilated.  If I hadn’t used the TENS I think I would have gone to hospital a lot earlier and probably would have given in to an epidural.

I will use Labour TENS again for sure and have suggested to my pregnant friends that they use it too.

I would highly recommend Labour TENS….

Published by under Birth stories

I used the Labour TENS from first signs of discomfort/painful contractions.

I was able to stay at home for most of labour and was amazed to discover I was 7cm dilated when I finally had to go to hospital for something extra – gas & air.

I truly believe that without the Labour TENS I would not have been able to stay at home without additional relief as long as I did.

Would highly recommend to all.
