The exhilaration I felt at having got through labour with the use of the TENS machine is incredible.

labour TENS was recommended to me through the hospital education classes. However, leading up to the birth of my baby, friends of mine, including a final year medical student laughed at my choice of using the TENS machine. Indeed her words were “ if you stubbed your toe the TENS might be good, but labour pain is completely different”. …well pleasingly I was proved right! About 20 hours or so into my labour I promised my husband that I would be giving up my career in law to become a Labour TENS sales rep!

The exhilaration I felt at having got through labour only with the use of the TENS machine (and a shot of pethidine) is incredible.
