TENS - Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation

1. Drug free pain relief in labour – what is it?
2. What does it feel like?
3. Are there any side effects?
4. When should I stop using or remove the machine?
5. When should I hire the TENS machine?
6. What if I go over my due date?
7. Can I use the TENS machine for backache?
8. Where do I position the pads on my back?
9. Can I test the machine before labour?

1.Drug free pain relief in labour – what is it?

The Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS) machine uses a small battery operated unit to provide a non-invasive and drug free method of helping to control labour pain. At the onset of labour, simply apply the four pads to your back as shown in the accompanying instructions and switch the TENS machine on. You will feel a pleasant pulsing sensation. This will help to raise the level of your own pain relieving chemicals known as endorphins. When experiencing a contraction, press the booster button for the extra surge of power needed to combat the pain. When the contraction ends, press the booster button again - it is that simple! The Labour TENS can be an effective technique for pain relief in over 80% of births with no side effects.
Evidence shows that to achieve the best results the TENS should be used from the onset of labour. In order to build up endorphins (the body’s natural pain relievers) the TENS needs to be in place for at least 40 minutes before the full effectiveness can be felt.

2. What does it feel like?

Most people describe the sensation of the TENS machine as tingling or pins and needles.

3. Are there any side effects?

It is not thought that using TENS in labour has any adverse effects on either you or your baby. You are free to move around while using it and you can use it in conjunction with gas and air. However you must remember it cannot be used if you want to try a birthing pool for pain relief and you can’t use it if you have a cardiac pacemaker.

4. When should I stop using or remove the machine?

When you remove the machine is completely up to you. It can be used in conjunction with gas and air to provide effective pain relief, and can be used for the duration of your labour. Often the effectiveness of the TENS machine is only realised once it has been removed.

5. When should I hire the TENS machine?

It is a good idea to book your TENS machine in early pregnancy (about 25-30 weeks) to avoid disappointment. It will then be dispatched in time for your 37th week. Do not worry if you have not ordered a TENS machine and you are nearing your due date just select "Express Delivery" and we will dispatch the machine on a Next "working" Day service

6. What if I go over my due date?

Do not worry as no extra charges will be incurred. When you hire the TENS you will be given a return date of 3 weeks after your due date. This should give enough time if your baby is overdue. If you do require more time please just let us know.

7. Can I use the TENS machine for backache?

You can use the TENS machine for back ache once you have reached 37 weeks in your pregnancy. Before this time you must check with your midwife. Replacement electrode pads can be purchased for £4.99 should you require them

8. Where do I position the pads on my back?

Try to get help when positioning the pads. The electrode placement pads need to be positioned 4/5cm above and below an imaginary line drawn with the navel. 2/3cm on either side of the spine.

9. Can I test the machine before labour?

Yes definitely, we would recommend you familiarise yourself with the machine and how to use it. Do not worry about the adhesiveness of the pads as they can re-used several times (ensure no oils or creams are present on the skin). Instructions on how to test the machine are included. Once you have tested the machine remove all the wires and don’t forget to place the protective covers back on electrodes to prevent them from drying out. Pack the machine away carefully and wait for the big day.

Please note that we are only able to hire these units within the UK.

    This website was recommended to me by a friend. It’s such an easy service, the machine arrived quickly with extra batteries and return was one simple step.

    I stumbled across birthease website when searching for tens machines to buy. Hiring was much better option financially and it was so easy to use. The reminder email about return date was super useful with new mum brain and the communication was excellent regarding me extending a few days. I would certainly recommend the service. Thanks birth-ease x

    Rated 5 out of 5

    Elle machine was used from early contractions to end and was also excellent for stage 3 of labour and PST labour uterus contractions. Didn’t even need a paracetamol after! Only thing I would suggest is option of hiring additional pads for the days following delivery as an option.

  17. Shannon (verified owner)

    Rated 5 out of 5

    I managed to do my whole labour with just a tens machine! Highly recommend getting one and birth-ease made it super easy! Comes with everything you need ready to use and really easy to return.

    Excellent customer service from Birthease. Everything arrived in perfect condition with very clear instructions. Very easy to return too, and plenty of time to do so. My labour was very quick, but I felt the benefit of the machine for the short time I used it.

  20. Jazz (verified owner)

    Rated 5 out of 5

    Excellent service and clear instructions included, also best price I found a hire tens machine for. Helped me hugely in labour, I was induced and used from when I started getting pains to when I switched to gas and air at 9cm! Didn’t even go to the highest setting, would recommend to all my friends and family! The return is so easy which is just what you need when you have a newborn. 5 stars.

  21. Lisa (verified owner)

    Great in the early stages of labour, and very easy to use! the service was fantastic both in receiving the machine and the pre-paid envelope to return the machine. Would highly recommend

  22. Abi (verified owner)

    Rated 5 out of 5

    Can’t recommend enough! Helped me remain calm through the first stages of labour. It’s a good idea to test the position of the pads on your back before labour starts. Also leave the tens machine on vibrate through out labour.

  23. Abby Brazier (verified owner)

    Rated 5 out of 5

    Easy to use service with pre-paid postage and packet sent with the machine. It provided brilliant pain management in early labour before I could use the pool and gas and air.

  24. Joanne Thornton (verified owner)

    Rated 5 out of 5

    I am so pleased that the tens machine was recommended to me. I used it throughout my labour, starting using the tens machine only, then later on using it alongside gas and air. It really helped with pain management, and I didn’t even use the higher settings. The hospital I was at said the tens machines they used were exactly the same, so I felt confident to be using a great product. Delivery and return was quick and easy, I would definitely recommend!

  25. Julia wiper (verified owner)

    I was a bit dubious but in the end I’m so glad I got this, it was the only pain relief I used in labour. Would recommend testing it out and getting used to the settings beforehand. The delivery and return system was really easy and convenient. Good machine and great service.

  28. Evelyn (verified owner)

    Rated 5 out of 5

    Great service from Birth-ease! The TENS machine was like brand new and really helped in the early stages of labour. My son was 17 days late and we had to stay in hospital for a while after birth so I was late returning the device but Birth-ease made no problem of that whatsoever, highly recommended.

  29. Rose Bellamy (verified owner)

    Rated 5 out of 5

    Very prompt service once ordered, easy to use, unsure how it helped with the pain but gave me something to focus on during contractions and helped as a distraction if nothing else. Would use again and definitely recommend. Easy to return in prepaid envelope and good communication to say received once returned.

    Tens machine helped me manage my labour alongside hypnobirthing. I found it helped me avoid having an epidural which I was adamant I didn’t want to have second time around with baby number 2. It was a bit sad sending it back as it really supported me to have a better birthing experience second time around . Highly recommended.

  39. Rebecca (verified owner)

    Rated 5 out of 5

    The TENS machine arrived promptly after ordering. Any query was dealt with straight away. The machine was my main source of pain relief and I used it up until I had to get into the water during labour. Birth- ease were amazing and I would definitely recommend this service to other mums to be.

    This was my second time renting a Tens with Birth ease. I couldn’t have got through my first stage of labour without it.

    Excellent service, very easy to use and came with extra batteries.
    If I had known my labour was going to be as quick as it was I would of started using it sooner but I managed with just this and gas and air.
    The booster button was my best friend and aswell as providing pain relief it also worked as a distraction, knowing I was in total control in just a push of a button.

    Would recommend and will 100% be using this again!
