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.

    I used this tens machine from early labour right up to 7cm dilated, before I got the epidural. This was my second time hiring the TENS machine from Birth-easy, highly recommend it! Very easy to use, easy to order and return.

    A great service, Thank you so much!

  2. Zoe (verified owner)

    Rated 5 out of 5

    I used this tens machine from the beginning of labour, right through to the end. I wouldn’t have coped without it and meant the only extra pain relief I needed was some gas and air! Easy to order & just pop in the post box to return! Definitely worth getting!

  3. Paula Gilbertson (verified owner)

    Rated 5 out of 5

    Fantastic bit of kit. I used it from early labour right up to 10cm dilated. In fact I loved it so much I was reluctant to get into the birthing pool as I didn’t want to take it off! The machine is really simple to use and the service and delivery quick and efficient. Sending it back was also really easy. Nothing bad to say – 5 stars all round!

    Rated 5 out of 5

    Excellent service from start to finish. Emailed first with questions, promptly responses back. Very helpful. Ordered the tens machine, came very quickly. Really helped from the onset of pains to when i actually gave birth too. Had her within 6.5 hrs, don’t think I’d have coped without the machine. Definitely going to recommend to friends who are pregnant. Thank you so much!

  5. Laura

    Rated 5 out of 5

    If you’re in any doubt over whether it’s worth using a TENS machine or not, I would say 100% go for it. It’s totally worth a try for the cost of hiring and the service provided by Birth-Ease is fantastic and makes the whole thing so easy. I personally found it took the edge off the pain and it was good to have a button to press when a contraction started (made me feel more in control)!).

  6. Loise Teigao (verified owner)

    Rated 5 out of 5

    This machine was a life saver! The worst part of my birth experience was taking the TENS off to get the epidural. I dont know how I would have coped without it! Highly recommend it.
    Service was perfect, arrived very quickly and was easy to use and return!

    Highly recommend hiring a tens machine – it came on time, was really useful in early pain management in labour then was very easy to return.

  8. Rebecca (verified owner)

    Rated 5 out of 5

    Highly recommend birth ease to anyone thinking about using a tens machine during labour. A fantastic and professional service, with excellent value for money. My labour was very quick and the tens machine was just perfect to mask the labour pains!

  9. Aimmah (verified owner)

    Rated 5 out of 5

    I had a quick labour (2.5 hrs) so my contractions were intense from the get go. The TENS machine was amazing and really helped with the pain! In the end I gave birth at home, using no other pain relief other than the TENS machine, I really do think it’s down to how much it takes the edge off!
    It was so easy to hire and return, and extremely easy to use.

  10. Rachel Fung (verified owner)

    Rated 5 out of 5

    I had a very quick and intense labour, so used Tens for home labour and Tens plus gas & air for the birth and that was it. I would not have managed without my Tens…
