TENS Pain Relief Unit
Member Name: Carrie2011
TENS Pain Relief Unit
Advantages: No drugs, You are more in control. Higher powered machine.
Disadvantages: Does not work for everyone. Cannot use in water.
I have hired an Obstar TENS machine for my recent labour from Natures gate. I was not really expecting it to be as effective as it was. The machine was very straight forward to use and when I called the company for advice before hiring, (as they have several different machines on offer and I was not sure which was the best for me) they were very helpfull and not at all pushy. I paid £25.95 and had the machine for 6 weeks. It arrived just before I was 37 weeks and I did not need to return it until 3 weeks past my due date which was more than enough time.
I used the machine from the very early stages of labour as per the advice and even though I had a very long hard labour found I was able to cope until near the end when I also used gas and air. I am sure this was due to the Tens machine providing excellent pain relief.
The machine has a mode button which has some pre set back pain settings. I had bad back pains for a week after my baby was born and used the machine instead of taking pills which I did not want to do as I am breasfeeding. it worked well on helping to deal with the back pain.
I am aware that TENS does not work for everyone but as I was recomended this machine from a friend perhaps it depends on which machine you use. My midwife said this one was one of the better higher powered machines.
Summary: If you want to hire a TENS for labour it is worth getting this machine. Great machine.
