Labour TENS enabled me to have a drug free birth 3 times!!!

Published by under Birth stories

I have used the Labour TENS machine with my 2 previous labours, and each time it has been brilliant.

I was reluctant to use any pain relief during child birth, and by using the Labour TENS machine I only needed gas.  With this last birth I didn’t use anything except the TENS machine!

I would highly recommend it to anyone.  It was brilliant & enabled me to have a drug free birth 3 times!

Thank you.

Labour TENS is absolutely fantastic!!

Published by under Birth stories

Labour TENS is absolutely fantastic!  It was like a security blanket during labour.

I took it off for a bath, but immediately found the contractions unbearable.  Upon putting the TENS back on, I felt in total control.

I managed my labour drug free, needing gas & air…. only in the last hour of pushing.

I cannot rate Labour TENS highly enough. On your scales it is above and beyond a “10”.

Thank you.

Very impressed with Labour TENS

Published by under Birth stories

Third birth…….. first time using Labour TENS……. was sceptical…….. Instant satisfaction!

Totally different birthing experience from first two.

All births were long …. from 15-19 hours. The Labour TENS machine allowed me to have more energy for the transition period and second stage of birthing.  I was still tired and overwhelmed, but not totally exhausted from the early stage of labour pains.

Highly recommend the Labour TENS machine.

Thank you Labour TENS……. Very impressed!

Labour TENS….. a positive experience

Published by under Birth stories

My recent experience using the Labour TENS machine during early labour with my first baby was extremely positive!

Having first heard about the benefits of using the machine through my ante-natal classes, I planned to add the TENS to my labour tools bag and ordered my machine, which was promptly delivered to my front doorstep.

On the morning of Friday 31st May, I went into early labour with contractions that were 10 minutes apart. These sensations were relatively mild, so didn’t attach the electrodes until they got a bit stronger. I found sitting on my fit ball wearing the TENS and activating it when each contraction came in waves, enabled me to stay comfortably at home until my contractions were 3 minutes apart and very strong.

Having the ability to send a warm, tingly sensation that could successfully distract me from the intensity of the crampy, tight contractions, particularly in my lower back, gave me a real sense of being in control of my pain management during early and active labour. I could adjust the frequency by turning up the charge as I needed, and back down once the contraction had passed, which allowed me to focus on deep breathing and the feeling of electrodes buzzing on my back was like a mini massage….. therefore keeping my mind away from focusing on the pain.

I highly recommend using the Labour TENS for pain relief during labour. It significantly enabled me to get through at home so that when I got to the hospital with contractions only 2 minutes apart we found I was 9 centimetres dilated and delivered my first baby “Poppy” at 11.30pm that evening.

I was so sceptical about using a TENS….. but it was very effective….

Published by under Birth stories

My active labour lasted 8 hours give or take, and the Labour TENS I would say was effective in controlling pain for about 80% of that time…. and then in conjunction with gas.

I received no stitches or tearing and almost no intervention.  If I am ever lucky enough to get pregnant again you will most definitely hear from me again!

p.s. Thank you for clearing up any doubt I had in hiring this unit. Your answers were what made my mind up to using a Labour TENS. I was so sceptical that what I’d read was really true, and now I can add my story to your list!!

Thank you.

Labour TENS was very helpful in masking the pain…

Published by under Birth stories

I had a very long labour of 72 hours, with irregular contractions.

The Labour TENS was very helpful in masking the pain and helped me to sleep. It was a very effective way to manage pain. I highly recommend it.

I high recommend the use of Labour TENS to any mum

Published by under Birth stories

I was recommended to use Labour TENS by friends in the U.K.

It arrived so quickly, we were able to practice using it before the birth.  It was very easy for my partner to administer on to me once labour had started. I was induced, so labour came on quick and fast, but the TENS allowed me to increase the pulsations easily as I progressed.

I highly recommend the use of Labour TENS to any mum.

Labour TENS helped to have what I would consider was a perfect labour

Published by under Birth stories

For the birth of my 3rd child I decided to use Labour TENS as it came highly recommended from friends and childbirth classes.  I had never used a TENS machine before and hoped that it would give me a better chance of having a natural birth with no drugs or interventions.

I woke at 2.50am on the 9th June with a strong contraction, stood up and my waters broke. After the second contraction occurred I new this was the real deal and got the Labour TENS out.  My partner attached the pads to my back and I used the TENS for every contraction from then on until baby was born.

Thanks to the Labour TENS and some meditative breathing, and movement, we managed to stay at home as long as possible so that by the time we arrived at the hospital at about 8.15am, I was fully dilated and ready to push. I did use some happy gas to help take the edge off for the last 40 minutes of labour.

Baby Hudson was born at 9.12am on 9th June 2013 after what I would consider was a perfect labour!

Thanks.

I can’t recommend Labour TENS highly enough!

Published by under Birth stories

Thank you again for an excellent product and service!

I had such a good experience using Labour TENS delivering my first son and it was just as good this time for bringing my second son into the world. Both boys were big babies (4.24kg and 4.36kg) and I was able to achieve a natural, drug free birth for both of them thanks to Labour TENS.

I can’t recommend Labour TENS highly enough!
