A Labour TENS machine (also known as Obstetric TENS) is a portable device that is specifically designed for pain relief during labour and is safe to use during the entire birthing process.
Some advantages of using Labour TENS:
• Drug-free, non-invasive pain control.
• You stay in control of your pain, which will lead to a less stressful and more positive birthing experience.
• No side effects or drowsiness for you or the baby.
• Pain relief at the push of a button.
• Can be used in the comfort of your own home in the early stages of labour and continued while at the hospital.
• Does not restrict you into one position for labour, so you can move around freely.
• Can be used in conjunction with other pain-relief techniques or drugs.
