Do not use a TENS if...
Never use a TENS machine under the following circumstances, without talking to a midwife or doctor first:
- Before you go into labour.
- When you’re in a shower, bath, or birth pool.
- If you have broken skin or a healing scar where you want to place the pads.
- If you have a cardiac pacemaker or a heart rhythm problem.
- If you have pain that you don’t think is labour pain. See your doctor or midwife if this is the case.
