LABOUR PAIN RELIEF USING TENS
drug free labour pain relief
WHAT IS TENS?
TENS (Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation) has been used widely for more than 30 years for pain relief, and more recently, a stimulator designed specifically for labour. Using the stimulator during labour has been found to shorten the duration of the first stage of labour by allowing you to stay relaxed in your own familiar surroundings at home for longer. The level of pain of the contractions is also significantly reduced. Recovery after delivery has been found to be faster and importantly, - drug free
- Portable, non-invasive and entirely under your control
- Easy to use
- Doesn’t stop you being mobile
- Can be used for a home birth
- It allows you to use other analgesics at the same time.
