The Elle TENS 2 is considered to be the second best in the series of TENS machines that we offer.  It offers all of the features that you require for birth, and includes an inbuilt contraction timer, as well as the boost function with Opti-max technology. Opti-max supports you when you really need that extra surge of power in the final stages of labour.

TENS stands for Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation. Transcutaneous, means across the skin. A TENS machine passes small electrical currents across the skin, via four small electrodes that stick to the skin of your lower back. 

TENS machines (when used during birth) have been hypothesised to work via a number of factors including; giving your body a distraction from the contraction pains;  it may assist in blocking pain signals from reaching your brain, and release feel good hormones known as endorphins; allowing for an overall more positive birthing experience.


  • The Elle TENS is a small, portable, battery-operated machine; therefor it is a great option for at home use (and fab for the car ride to hospital too).
  • The impulse frequency and strength can be self-adjusted, to suit your needs.
  • If you don’t like the feeling, or you’re not getting the desired effect, you haven’t committed to anything. The electrodes can be removed and you are able to try other pain relief options.
  • Most importantly, there are no known adverse outcomes from the use of a TENS machine; it is safe for both mum and bub.

    Only pain relief I needed

    Used the tens from the start of my contractions had a 15 hour natural labour no pain killers and I swear the tens worked miracles.
    Also very prompt delivery after I left it late to order as the customer service was amazing and super easy to return.

    Still can't believe how this helped me through birth with my first bub!

    I cannot rave about this TENS machine enough! It helped me to have a smooth and intervention free natural birth, and made the experience of meeting my son for the first time so amazing. It allowed me to stay at home for as long as possible throughout my labour and think this played a big role on how well everything went overall. It was also a great tool to involve my partner in the birth as he took full control of the 'BOOST' button. I still can't believe I didn't have to use any pharm pain relief! Recommend to all expecting mamas!

    Great distraction

    This was a great distraction for my labour that lasted 10 hours. For me the pain didn’t get away but having the TENS definitely helped me to get through the contractions. I would definitely recommend!!!!

    Amy (Research, AU)

    I wore the tens for the first 24 hours of my 40 hour labour and it was so great! It helped me to manage the contractions so much better. I loved the contraction boost button, it was amazing!
