What is TENS?
TENS (Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation) is a method of pain relief that has been used successfully worldwide for many years by pregnant women and professional midwives to treat labour pain naturally. TENS promotes the release of endorphins (the body’s own pain-relieving chemicals) while also creating a barrier in the brain to block the pain signals.
How does a Babycare TENS machine work?
At the onset of labour, simply apply the four pads to your back as shown in the accompanying instructions and switch the Babycare TENS machine on. Increase the intensity to a comfortable level so that you can feel a pleasant pulsing sensation. 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 Elle TENS allows you to be mobile, lucid, and remain in control of your own pain relief. When used from the first signs of labour pain, it helps you stay at home longer, as well as being suitable for use in the hospitals. You can use it even with a water birth, but not in the water itself. It is recommended to use the Elle TENS right from the start of your labour to build up your endorphin level. As a midwife will usually ask you to enter the water when you are 4-5cm dilated, TENS is an ideal pain-relief solution up until this point.
The Elle TENS can be used in conjunction with other pain relief too, just ask your midwife.
The Elle TENS can also be used post labour for general pain relief, such as back or period pain. Replacement electrodes are available (B000A1QKGW) from amazon and .
