Didn’t need an epidural due to the TENS machine

Published by under Birth stories

I found the Labour TENS machine extremely useful during my labour and I’m so glad I hired it. I used it for pain relief and distraction during contractions right up until the end when I had to push. I was so happy I didn’t need an epidural due to the TENS taking the “edge off”. I started with it on a low setting and slowly increased it to about 2/3 strength. I would definitely recommend the TENS machine to any woman wanting another natural pain relief option for labour, and I will be sure to use it again.

Labour TENS useful for after pains….

Published by under Birth stories

I found the Labour TENS machine to be really helpful the day after labour for the after pains (which were surprisingly painful too)!

Thanks.

Labour TENS was fabulous

Published by under Birth stories

Once again your Labour TENS machine was fabulous – another fast labour with no time for any other pain relief.

Thank you.

Labour TENS helped me to stay in control….

Published by under Birth stories

After a very difficult first delivery with my first daughter I wanted to try something different for pain relief. The Labour TENS helped me to stay in control and work with the pain.

My first labour was 10 hours long with a special forceps delivery, that made my recovery long.

My second labour (using Labour TENS) was 2 hours & 37 minutes long with no drugs or forceps!!

I am totally blown away by this little machine & completely recommend it

Published by under Birth stories

WOW!! I used the Labour TENS machine as a “back up” option thinking it might come in handy in early labour (not having done this before!)

I was delighted (and frankly amazed) that my ONLY pain relief started and ended with the Labour TENS. This was over a period of 7 hours, starting at midnight in Stage 1, (set at about 6 on the dial), and ending at 7.20am (with 40 as the maximum I used on the dial).  I slipped it on again (at 20) for minor stitches (which were also given with a local anaesthetic), as the TENS had given me so much confidence and was a bit of a comforter by that time.

In addition to using the Labour TENS I moved about, sat on a fit ball, refused to lie on my back, and “vocalised”

I am totally blown away by this little machine and would completely recommend it to anyone.

I feel that the lack of drugs administered really “made” my experience, and enabled my mind and body to get the job done and then recover very quickly post partum.

THANKS for giving me a truly positive experience.

Natural birth made possible

Published by under Birth stories

My labour started at 8am.  My husband connected the Labour TENS straight away as my contractions were only 10 minutes apart. 

We had a 2 hour car trip to the hospital and the TENS machine made it a breeze!  When we reached the hospital, my contractions were 3 minutes apart.  By using hypno birthing techniques and the Labour TENS I gave birth to a gorgeous healthy baby boy at 3.37pm.

Thank you for making it possible to have a natural birth.  I did not want to use drugs of any kind and the Labour TENS allowed me to fulfil my wish.  I highly recommend Labour TENS to everyone.

Thank you again,

Maree, QLD
