TENS Machine Rss

Hi,

Just wondering if people who have used a TENS machine found it useful? Would you recommend one? Where do you hire them from?

Thanks,

Elisa

I used a tens machine that my hospital actually had there, so I didn't have to hire one. I found it completely useless. I didn't find that it took any of the pain away, nor was it comforting. But everybody is different and has different pain thresholds. Mind you I was 35 hours into labour and trying to use the blasted thing was probably no good by that stage....bring on epidural!

i used a tens machine during my labour. i don't think it really eased the pain but it did give me something else to think about.
i think next time i wont bother, but when i was so nervous with the first i think it did help having somethin else to focus one.
i found a physiotherapist who hires them out. your hospital or child health clinic should know where to get one.
best of luck.
ps. i have a 'lachlan' too!
cheers,
amanda
