TENS Labour machines Lock Rss

Hi girls,

Just wanting some feedback on these TENS machines in labour... i've read a few birth stories where the mum has used them and they say they've helped quite a bit.

Im trying for a natural birth without epidural or pethidine so these look great!

Has anyone got any experiences with these? helpful? eased the pain?

thanks smile
I had one of these while I was in early labour in hospital. I didn't like it all that much, didn't find that it helped all that much with coping with the pain. The hospital midwives taped it to me, so it was a bit of a pain in the a$$ when I wanted to get in and out of the shower (I found this more effective). Everyone is different with pain relief, so it wouldn't hurt for you to give it a try...if you don't like it, don't use it!! of luck!

I used one for my VBAC and it was fantastic. DD2 ended being posteriour so had mostly a back labour. I didnt really think it was doing much ....untill the leads came off and it stopped working and BOY did I notice! It doesnt take the pain away but certainly made it much more bearable for a much longer time.

My SIL just had a natural drug free labour with her first using only TENS and it worked for her as well. My advice would be to give it a go. There are always those few that any pain relief doesnt work for but as there is no side effect for user or baby you are not risking anything.

Good Luck
