Many Mums-To-Be plan for a natural birth and discuss their pain relief options with their midwife, doula or obstetrician well ahead of the big day. Labour TENS or Obstetric TENS is a safe method of pain relief that is recommended by medical professionals as it provides Mums with a wonderful source of pain relief during their labour.
We all know that birthing your baby is not easy but it is certainly possible to do it without drugs or medical intervention with the help of a TENS machine – check out our reviews where you will hear from women who have used our labour TENS to achieve just that.
Not only will a labour TENS provide you with a drug free option for pain relief, it also allows you to stay in the comfort of your own home for longer during your initial stages of labour. Lots of women also say that it is a great distraction and using the Boost button during contractions gives them an element of control – which has to be a good thing!
