    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. Katie M. (verified owner)

      Quick efficient delivery – I couldn’t have got through my early labour without the tens machine!
      So easy to return using the freepost bag, would definitely use birth ease again!

    2. Joanne (verified owner)

      Really helped me through early stages of labour. Easy to use and return afterwards.

    3. Rosie (verified owner)

      The Elle tens machine was an absolute godsend during my labour. It helped me remain calm & on top of my surges until I got into the pool at about 7cm dilated. The boost function was brilliant & gave me something to focus on during surges. Hiring from birthease was so easy – it arrived the day after I ordered it & they provide the return envelope too so all you have to do is pop it in the postbox to return it. I’d recommend hiring from here to anyone & will do myself again if we have another baby.

    4. Mariama

      Excellent service from start to finish, very reasonably priced as well. The tens machine was such an amazing help during the early and late stage contractions! I used it along the gas and air during labour too. In my experience, days later, my back was very achy and sore, but thats probably because I left it on for too long. Even then, I’m still happy to have used it!

    5. Charlotte Wood (verified owner)

      The tens machine really helped me through my labour, I used it from beginning to end. Would thoroughly recommend.

      The service that birth-ease offer is very simple. Great communication, great information and easy return instructions.Very fairly priced also.

      Will be recommending Birth-ease to friends and family. Thank you so much.

    6. Emma Yarnold

      Birtheaae are a brilliant company and service. I was so impressed with their efficiency and the product when it arrived. It was an absolute life saver during the birth of our baby boy. TENS is something I would recommend to all mums to be.

    7. Liv (verified owner)

      Great service – love that they take the worry away from wondering when you should order. Super fast delivery and easy to return, with a quick response to confirm it had arrived. I love hassle-free service like that!
      The TENS machine was easy to use, with clear instructions. It helped to provide a pain distraction in my labour so would recommend. And would definitely recommend hiring from Birthease as it really was super easy!

    8. Ruth (verified owner)

      Brilliant service with clear instructions, was brilliant pain relief throughout my labour and meant I could still be mobile throughout. Would defo recommend

    9. Alice (verified owner)

      I didn’t use a TENS for my first child, but after talking to other mums I decided to add one to my arsenal of pain relief! I’m so glad I did because my labour ended up lasting over 10 hours, and I had my TENS there to boost through stronger contractions until I ended up having an epidural. I found that my TENS plus ‘up-breathing’ really helped to get me through.
      It was very easy to use, and once I got to 37 weeks I had a test run at home. When we got back from the hospital I just packed it back up & popped it in the post box, so easy!

    10. Laura (verified owner)

      Really helped me in labour. 100% recommend.

    11. Beata (verified owner)

      Excellent service. Easy to use and return. TENS machine easy to use. Best pain relief for early and mid stages of labour. No other pain relief needed until the final stage. Would definitely recommend to any expectant mums.

    12. Hollie (verified owner)

      Fantastic service. The tens machine arrived on time, well packaged with everything I needed. The instructions were clear and the tens machine simple to use, it proved invaluable in my vbac labour. Thank you

    13. Laura (verified owner)

      Received the TENS machine quickly. Excellent service and super easy to return. I admit I was sceptical but it REALLY helped with my labour pains. 100% recommend.

    14. Katherine (verified owner)

      Really helped with my labour and easy delivery and returns

    15. Jenny (verified owner)

      I found it really easy to use and post back and it really helped with labour. Thank you!
