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.

    Rated 5 out of 5

    Excellent service & very quick delivery. The tens machine really helped to ease the pain in the early stages of labour, till I was In active labour and at the hospital. I’m so glad that I hired the machine. Would definitely recommend. Thanks so much birth ease!

  7. Stephanie (verified owner)

    Rated 5 out of 5

    Quick delivery and great, easy returns system. TENS machine was easy to set up, and worked really well. Worked so-so as pain relief during labour. Unfortunately, I ended up needing syntocinon so my contractions ramped up quite quickly and soon the TENS wasn’t enough and I eventually needed an epidural. However, when I was using the TENS it was great! I didn’t actually turn the dial up that high, as I found the current got too strong then, and was rather painful, so I didn’t make use of the whole range. (Even post-syntocinon, the TENS was a little too spiky.) Would definitely hire again though, as I think it’s got great potential.

    Rated 5 out of 5

    Great service – really easy to order and arrived in plenty of time to trial it before the big day! Lots of time to return – and so easy: just pop in the bag supplied and pop into the postbox 😊
    Everything you need is supplied in the box – incl. spare batteries!
    I used the TENS machine throughout my labour & it was super easy to activate, even at the height of the contractions! I was able to labour without pain relief thanks to this little machine!
    Would definitely recommend!

  9. Lizzie (verified owner)

    Rated 5 out of 5

    Arrived just in time having ordered it the day before. Really helped and so easy / hassle free to return. I would definitely recommend!

  10. Kate (verified owner)

    Rated 5 out of 5

    Easy to order and even arrived early. The returns process was so easy – just a case of putting it in the supplied packaging and popping in a post box. The hire period is perfect and although my baby was a week late and we spent a week in hospital, I didn’t find it a rush to return the tens machine on time.
    I found it really useful in the early/middle stages of labour and it allowed me to stay home until I was in established labour. I kept using it until I went into the birth pool and it really helped with the contractions.
    Also, it feels good to be borrowing something reusable rather than making a purchase for something that will only be used once.

  11. Pat (verified owner)

    Rated 5 out of 5

    Very quick service and easy to return after labour which is needed after many sleepless nights.
