Eases back pain in labour

Published by under Birth stories

Throughout both of my pregnancies I had bad back pain which continued into labour. With my first baby this made it impossible to move from the bed, relying on heat packs and later pethidine to combat the pain.  He was  eventually born with the aid of forceps and an episiotomy.

Using the Labour TENS with my second baby relieved much of the back pain and I was free to move around which made for a much faster labour.  He was born drug free and without any intervention.

Amazing distraction from labour pains

Published by under Birth stories

To begin with I had such bad back pain that I couldn’t tell when I was having a contraction, until I started using the TENS. It dulled the constant back pain enough for me to be able to start timing the contractions.

I was able to use the Labour TENS machine well into hard labour.  Eventually I took it off to have a bath but up until that point, it was amazing at distracting me from the pain of my contractions.

I highly recommend the Labour TENS to everyone.

Cannot recommend Labour TENS highly enough!!

Published by under Birth stories

My labour was induced and ,as a midwife, I knew that this was going to cause sudden, strong contractions. I was convinced I couldn’t get through an induced labour without an Epidural.  While the labour was certainly challenging and intense, I managed to get through it all using the Labour TENS machine and one dose of pethidine.

I am incredibly proud of my body and am sure that without the TENS machine, I probably would have ended up with an Epidural, and potentially, all the interventions that can accompany it.

Cannot recommend Labour TENS highly enough!

I highly recommend Labour TENS for natural pain relief

Published by under Birth stories

Thank you Labour TENS for a wonderful machine! It got me through a very short but intense labour with no other pain relief at all.  I can highly recommend for anyone wanting a more natural pain relief option in labour.

Labour TENS was invaluable…… it was amazing!

Published by under Birth stories

The Labour TENS is amazing and everything about it …. from the ordering process, the delivery of the kit, the usage, and the return…. is straightforward and simple.

I had heard about the benefits of a TENS machine relatively late in my pregnancy and did a quick internet search and found Labour TENS. Compared to other TENS machine rental sites, Labour TENS seemed the easiest with the return delivery satchel included for easy and quick return.

The Labour TENS kit arrived within a few days of ordering, in time for my 37th week of pregnancy. I went into labour in my 38th week and the Labour TENS was invaluable.  I applied the electrode pads when I felt the contractions and gradually increased the settings as I needed to. The arm band allowed me to keep in control of the settings and I used the boost button when I felt contractions coming.  The Labour TENS kit was on me from the onset of my labour until my daughter was born, which was 6 hours later.

I used the Labour TENS at home, in the car on the way to the hospital, and in the delivery suite.  I was already 8cm dilated by the time I reached the hospital, which I would have probably not been able to do without the Labour TENS. I did not need any pethidine or epidural, and found the Labour TENS sufficient.

Thank you for a great product and such a hassle-free rental and return process.  I will certainly be recommending to my friends and look forward to using Labour TENS again for any next babies!

Maria, Vic.
