I opted to have a drug free experience as I felt that I would be able to control the pain well enough with a combination of Labour TENS plus meditation and yoga techniques. I controlled the first 7 hours easily at home with the TENS machine, arriving at hospital 8cm dilated. For a further 5 hours the Labour TENS helped enormously with the pain – I was in a zone and didn’t need anything else. Unfortunately after 12 hours of full dilation it was decided I needed a caesarean.

I have no regrets about my decision and would highly recommend using the labour TENS machine to anyone. My outcome was due to my baby’s position and nothing would’ve changed that.
