    Optional Extras

    Only necessary if planning prolonged use e.g. back pain in late pregnancy. One set of pads included with the hire is enough for labour itself

    To give you extra peace of mind, we will send your machine 2 weeks earlier at 34 weeks instead of 36 weeks.

    TENS - Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation

    1. Drug free pain relief in labour – what is it?
    2. What does it feel like?
    3. Are there any side effects?
    4. When should I stop using or remove the machine?
    5. When should I hire the TENS machine?
    6. What if I go over my due date?
    7. Can I use the TENS machine for backache?
    8. Where do I position the pads on my back?
    9. Can I test the machine before labour?

    1.Drug free pain relief in labour – what is it?

    The Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS) machine uses a small battery operated unit to provide a non-invasive and drug free method of helping to control labour pain. At the onset of labour, simply apply the four pads to your back as shown in the accompanying instructions and switch the TENS machine on. You will feel a pleasant pulsing sensation. This will help to raise the level of your own pain relieving chemicals known as endorphins. 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 Labour TENS can be an effective technique for pain relief in over 80% of births with no side effects.
    Evidence shows that to achieve the best results the TENS should be used from the onset of labour. In order to build up endorphins (the body’s natural pain relievers) the TENS needs to be in place for at least 40 minutes before the full effectiveness can be felt.

    2. What does it feel like?

    Most people describe the sensation of the TENS machine as tingling or pins and needles.

    3. Are there any side effects?

    It is not thought that using TENS in labour has any adverse effects on either you or your baby. You are free to move around while using it and you can use it in conjunction with gas and air. However you must remember it cannot be used if you want to try a birthing pool for pain relief and you can’t use it if you have a cardiac pacemaker.

    4. When should I stop using or remove the machine?

    When you remove the machine is completely up to you. It can be used in conjunction with gas and air to provide effective pain relief, and can be used for the duration of your labour. Often the effectiveness of the TENS machine is only realised once it has been removed.

    5. When should I hire the TENS machine?

    It is a good idea to book your TENS machine in early pregnancy (about 25-30 weeks) to avoid disappointment. It will then be dispatched in time for your 37th week. Do not worry if you have not ordered a TENS machine and you are nearing your due date just select "Express Delivery" and we will dispatch the machine on a Next "working" Day service

    6. What if I go over my due date?

    Do not worry as no extra charges will be incurred. When you hire the TENS you will be given a return date of 3 weeks after your due date. This should give enough time if your baby is overdue. If you do require more time please just let us know.

    7. Can I use the TENS machine for backache?

    You can use the TENS machine for back ache once you have reached 37 weeks in your pregnancy. Before this time you must check with your midwife. Replacement electrode pads can be purchased for £4.99 should you require them

    8. Where do I position the pads on my back?

    Try to get help when positioning the pads. The electrode placement pads need to be positioned 4/5cm above and below an imaginary line drawn with the navel. 2/3cm on either side of the spine.

    9. Can I test the machine before labour?

    Yes definitely, we would recommend you familiarise yourself with the machine and how to use it. Do not worry about the adhesiveness of the pads as they can re-used several times (ensure no oils or creams are present on the skin). Instructions on how to test the machine are included. Once you have tested the machine remove all the wires and don’t forget to place the protective covers back on electrodes to prevent them from drying out. Pack the machine away carefully and wait for the big day.

    Please note that we are only able to hire these units within the UK.

    1. Fiona K. (verified owner)

      Arrived on time with no fuss, easy to use and return, and worked for me. Did sometimes accidentally trigger the max button at times which was agony, so I think I preferred the mama tens machine I used for first labour, but this still did most of the pain relief work for me again!

    2. Jenny (verified owner)

      Great service. Arrived in plenty time with all the necessary parts and even spare batteries! Really helped me cope with early labour! And really easy to return at the end – just pop it in the post box.

    3. Julia (verified owner)

      Excellent service. I was overdue (41+4 days, so the long horing period worked perfectly. The TENS machine was also very good quality, easy to use, and has a boost button for when you’re most in pain.

    4. Zairah Hussain (verified owner)

      I am rating five stars for the delivery and return process only as my labour was so quick that i didnt get to use the tens machine. I did really want to use it and was hoping Id still be able to but was 7 cm dialated before I knew it.The tens machine was super easy to return especially for someone who had just given birth and didnt have time to faf around with postage and looking for packaging to return things. Birthease have really thought of pregnant women and new mums. 5 stars for considering the little things.

    5. Olga (verified owner)

      It was all very straightforward – I received the TENS machine by post, popped into the postbox when done with it. I used the machine for over a week, to handle the back pain of contractions, and it really helped during the time I was still at home, as well as at the early stages in the hospital.

    6. Hannah (verified owner)

      Really easy hire service and return and was so helpful during early labour at home.

    7. Helen (verified owner)

      Really easy to order, use and return. It really helped during labour. The package that arrives is well organised and prepared and the instructions were helpful. Returning it was so easy too.

    8. D Lee (verified owner)

      Really good service. Delay in Royal Mail delivering package with COVID disrupting service but Birthease were really easy to contact and get a spare set delivered in case the other were no to arrive. Found the machine helpful despite me not being the best at remembering to turn boost on/off amongst contractions!

    9. Adam (verified owner)

      Great service, it was easy to order and was delivered on time when they said it would. Return instructions were straight forward. We’ll definitely use again for baby #2!

    10. Michaela (verified owner)

      Great service and price. Used the tens with both my pregnancies and will certainly recommended to others!

    11. Amy Dickens (verified owner)

      Really pleased with my TENS machine. It helped me so much during birth and was so easy to use! Fabulous service from Birthease

    12. Abbie (verified owner)

      Great service and easy to use. Received the TENS machine in plenty of time and even though the birth was 11 days over due date the hire window was plenty for me to still be able to use it. Returning it was simple, just what you need with the chaos of a newborn.

    13. Naomi (verified owner)

      Great service, received the machine very quickly, easy to use and they have a very simple return system. Would recommend and use the company again. The machine itself was a lifesaver at home/on the way to the hospital.

    14. Fionnula Finan (verified owner)

      Incredible service, amazing product and a great price! What’s not to love. Will definitely hire a TENS machine again in my future pregnancies!

    15. Ellie (verified owner)

      Great service. It was so easy to order and the Tens arrived quickly.
      I found the tens to be really helpful and very pleased I hired it from Birth-ease
