TENS (Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation)

Drugs Free Pain relief...learn more

A TENS unit is a small battery operated machine that works by delivering small electrical impulses to your body through four sticky electrode pads. The electrode pads are attached to your lower back during labour.
These electrical impulses flood the nervous system, reducing its ability to transmit pain signals to the spinal cord and brain.
A specifically designed 'labour or obstetric' TENS unit allows you to increase and decrease the pulse rate of the TENS and operate on two settings: one for rest (between contractions) and one for during a contraction. 
TENS has a rapidly growing reputation as one of the safest, most effective forms of modern pain control available to women during childbirth. The treatment is widely approved and recommended by medical professionals and it allows you to experience a mobile, drug-free labour, with personal control over your pain relief.

Hear what our mums are saying about our TENS machines...

I just wanted to say thank you for sending the tens machine so promptly! What an amazing machine this is!! This was my first baby and thanks to your tens machine I managed to wait at home till I was almost 9cm before going to the hospital and I birthed naturally without any pain relief! I couldn’t have done it without the tens. It was great also as when things got more intense it gave my husband a job pushing the pulse button which was nice as it was his way of being able to help! I highly recommend the tens machine to all and will certainly hire one from you for our next baby! I have encouraged my sister to try one out with her next baby also. - Shontae, Invercargill, Jan 2020

Great for a distraction. I had a very short, intense labour of 2.5 hours but TENS helped for the first hour. Also helped after birth with the pains of uterus contracting. - Kirsty, Upper Hutt, Jan 2020

We ended up having an unplanned home birth which I largely thank to this use of this machine. It helped me so much!!! Dream result :-) - Niki, Tauranga, Jan 2020

Great for early stages of labour and was helpful to have something up my sleeve for a long 'rush hour' journey in the car to hospital! - Sian, Wellington, Nov 2019

All in all a smooth and successful labour. It was well organised with getting TENS delivered. Thank you, highly recommend you to all! - Charlotte, Hamilton, Nov 2019

It was GREAT for managing 48 hours of early labour! - Rochelle, Te Atatu, Nov 2019

2nd labour with a TENS and both times allowed me to be comfortable enough to stay at home for labour and birth - Whitney, Whakatane, Nov 2019
