An essential part of your birthing kit.

Excellent machine. It really works! I had a 17 hours labour and it was the only pain relief I needed for the first 15 hours.

Very happy with this

It has done a very good job through at least 5 labours now but the really good aspect is the special back pain program. The batteries seem to last for ages and it's easy to get quite addicted. I've also used it for stiff necks and muscle strain. The only downside is the pink picture of a pregnant lady which attracts a few comments in more macho environments.

Brilliant TENS, would recommend to everyone

This was recommended to me by a friend who used it during her labour, and I loved it as much as her. I used it during the last stages of pregnancy for back pain, in labour and after. It was very simple to use, and massively effective. In the early stages of labour it worked fantastically. Due to (non-TENS related) complications, I had to have a c-section, and was in a lot of pain following that, so was able to use it after too, reducing the amount of drugs I had to take. I can't wait to use it for my next baby!!

Kept me sane and distracted

I bought this machine for my first pregnancy and I am re ordering the sticky pads for my third baby. I cannot imagine labouring without it. It was a godsend for distraction and pain relief. Only used this and gas for all but the end with no. 1 and all the way through with no.2. Have recommended several times and had lots of thank you's.

Cannot think of a negative

Cannot think of a negative. Buying this Labour machine was a good decision. Great service, loved the video, simple and straight forward including using it during my labour. I am sure it helped me a great deal.

Great buy

Bought this following a chat with my midwife who said these were good powerful machines. I have nothing to compare it to as this was my first pregnancy but I am very pleased with the help it gave me during my labour and would recommend. Also got good advice from the company when I telephoned to place the order and ask questions.

Very glad I bought this machine

I chose to purchase rather than hire as I had terrible lower back pain for the last 8 weeks of my pregnancy. This machine can be turned from its labour setting to a powerful general pain relief machine with one press of a button. Really got me through the last few weeks and indeed the labour itself once back in obstetric setting. Highly Recommend. *****

Can't recommend this machine highly enough

Can't recommend this machine highly enough! I didn't use a TENs machine during the labour of my first child but I did during the birth of my second and it helped make this second labour a much more positive experience. For me, it was the only pain relief I needed the second time around. I used the 'boost' button during each of the contractions and it really helped me stay calm and focused.
