With TENS I enjoyed a natural birth

Published by at 11:54 am under Birth stories

This was my first baby. Went into labour at home with contractions roughly 1 minute apart. Had a shower during early ones, but then put on Labour TENS as they got stronger. Loved the TENS and used it at home, in the car, and at hospital. Arrived at hospital 2-3 hours after labour started and was over 9cm already!! Definitely feel TENS helped me reach that point. Used TENS at hospital until 10cm & pushing (also had gas at this point). Then took machine & gas off and laboured (pushed) for 2 more hours until our baby was born!  Labour was less than 6 hours in total. TENS definitely got me through feeling quite relaxed and enjoying a drug free, natural birth.

Thank you
