How It Works
A TENS machine is a small battery operated device that delivers electrical impulses to a specific area of the body. This occurs via leads inserted into the device and attached to sticky pads, these are then placed to the desired area of the body. In labour they are placed on the middle and lower back.
These impulses are a tingling sensation thought to interfere with and block pain messages sent to the brain whilst encouraging our own natural pain blocking sensors called endorphins.
Why use a TENS Machine during labour?
The use of a TENS machine during labour has dated back to the 1970s and is highly recommended by health care professionals to be a low risk, drug free method of pain relief.
