Couldn’t have managed without the TENS

Published by at 2:08 pm under Birth stories

I used the TENS from the onset of my labour from 12.00pm Monday, all day Tuesday (mild labour), and I only took it off just before we left for the hospital at 7.30am Wednesday. I was checked by the nurses when I arrived at the hospital, and I was already 4cm dilated, 90% effaced. I think I couldn’t have gone for as long at home without the TENS machine.

I did have complications during my labour, which resulted in an emergency c-section, due to bub being “wedged”, but bub arrived happy & healthy….a beautiful baby boy…. Noah Robert!
