Top 3 TENS Machines for Mums-to-be!
This entry was posted on 01/07/2014.
7/10 mums using a labour TENS machine said it helped reduced the pain of giving birth, according to a survey by Which? UK recently. More than a third of these mums owned their own labour TENS machine, and with availability of labour TENS machines in hospitals going down, we at StressNoMore are sharing our Top 3 TENS machines for mums-to-be!
Labour TENS Machine
A TENS machine sends an electrical current into the body through electrode pads. In labour, these pads are usually placed either side of the spine. The electrical current blocks the pain signals that are being sent to the brain; it also stimulates the release of endorphins, the body’s natural painkiller. This type of pain relief is natural, and it can be used in conjunction with other methods. Best of all, TENS machines are safe for mother and baby!
3. The allrounder: Neurotrac Labour Obstetric TENS £62.99
- Boost Switch
- TENS machines are recommended by midwives
- Can be used as a regular TENS
The NeuroTrac Obstetric TENS is a digital dual channel Obstetrics TENS unit. It has 1 dedicated labour pain programme for ease of use. The NeuroTrac Obstetric TENS comes with its own specially designed Remote Boost Switch for additional pain control at times of intense pain.
