You can achieve an easier less painful labour without drugs using TENS. Our TENS machines for sale are Obstetric-specific TENS specifically for use in childbirth. TENS stimulates nerves via self-adhesive pads, releasing endorphins and disrupting the pain signal to the brain, effectively reducing the sensation from your contractions.

TENS can be used in conjunction with other pain relief techniques during labour – it has been used effectively with acupressure, movement and heat packs, and you can use it with the gas and pethedine as well. TENS is a great item to include in your “toolbox” for labour.
POST BIRTH: Not just for labour and birth – our Obstar TENS machine can also help with back or neck pain (yours or your partner’s), shoulder pain from breastfeeding and carrying baby, can be used to ease the pain of afterpains as your uterus shrinks back to size after birth, period pain, and much more.

TENS stands for Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation. TENS produces electrical signals to stimulate nerves via self-adhesive pads. This releases endorphins, and disrupts the pain signal to the brain, effectively reducing the pain sensation.
How will TENS help your pain?
TENS (Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation) works by passing mild electrical impulses through the skin, via electrode pads, into the nerve fibres which lie below. The TENS impulses help your body produce its own pain killing chemicals, such as ‘endorphins’. Our Obstetric TENS have a BOOST Button feature to be used during contractions.
The level of pain relief obtained varies from person to person. Some find that using TENS during childbirth provides all the pain relief required during the whole of labour, whereas others find that other analgesics are also required. A Swedish study showed that TENS was the only pain killer required by 70% of women in labour.
Your hire is for 6 weeks and we suggest that your TENS be booked for you to be with you when you’re 37 weeks pregnant.
