I ordered my tens machine in a panic and received it 2 days later. When I went into labour I was able to get through it all with only the tens machine which is a game changer. The tens machine was so amazing that it masked my pain so well I ended up delivering my own baby in the car on the way to the hospital. This is my NUMBER 1 must for any expecting mum.
Because of the tens I was able to stay home until 9cm dilated, because of this I had my dream labour and birth, a pain relief free labour and birth. Highly recommend.
Cannot recommend highly enough!! My TENS arrived quickly, was beautifully packaged and instructions were very easy to understand. The prepaid return envelope made the entire experience very simple and straightforward. I ordered the Elle TENS at the recommendation of my midwife for pain relief in labour and it was the best decision! I had a very intense 5 hour labour with a posterior baby and used the Elle TENS the entire time without need for any other pain relief. While I birthed my placenta and during suturing, I kept the TENS on "boost" mode, and it provided very effective pain relief. I recommend the 8 week hire as I also found it extremely useful for the first few weeks postpartum for minimising afterbirth pains. Such a good investment, and useful for so much more than just labour. I will definitely be ordering again for my next birth!
I really wasn’t sure about using a tens machine but was recommended by my midwife so decided to give it a go.
I put the tens on once my contractions started and thank goodness I did!
I did 14 hours of labour at home and was already 5cm dilated by the time I got to hospital all thanks to the tens. I was able to get through 26 hours of drug free labour just using the tens!
Will definitely be hiring for my next bub!
Everything about this hire is thoughtful, down to the extra batteries, easy instruction card and convenient pouches. Would highly recommend to anyone sourcing a TENS
The tens machine was a godsend! Without this I would not have been able to get through my 40 hour labour. I applied it within the first hour contractions started and had it on the whole time. I will be hiring again with second bubs and have already recommended it to any pregnant women I speak with!
This was my second labour using a Tens Machine and first time using the Mama and I machine. Couldn’t recommend more. Love the two channels and the boost function especially. Have already told two friends to order theirs! It arrived in a timely fashion and was easy to return.
A friend recommended Mama and I Tens and I am SO glad I listened to her advice. This was a lifesaver during my labour and I ended up not having any pain relief. The process of hiring, returning, easy instruction manual and use was all a very smooth process - I would highly recommend (and already have!) to my pregnant friends. Thank you so much! Will be hiring again for future babies!
The tens machine helped get me through the early stages of labour! I highly recommend it. It was easy to get on and off in the water and provided instant relief during surges. I would’ve used for longer however had to have CTG monitoring and the Tens interferes. I was highly anxious about labour but this supported me to having a natural labour.
Highly recommend it!! It helped me go through the stage one of labor so much!!! I can’t imagine doing it again without the tens machine!! The best thing ever!!
I have been induced 2 weeks ago and I went through most part of my labour only using my Tens machine.
At the end I had to add some gas but my Tens machine really helped me to distract from the pain!
Very happy with the TENS machine. Labour is never easy but this definitely helped to relax and calm me. I was able to experience a drug free birth with my 2nd baby girl which meant I had a speedy recovery afterwards. Thankyou!
Loved this device! Got me through all my contractions and helped me to concentrate on breathing. I didn’t need to use any pain relief for labour as this literally made it all bearable. 100% recommend to all mumma’s to be
I was so attached to the TENS machine for my whole labour. It was a life saver for me as I was trying to achieve a natural Hypnobirthing birth. The process to order and return was so easy. Very professional company and easy experience. Highly recommend.
I seriously don’t know what to say this machine literally got me through my induction and labour. I’m so happy I decided to hire this machine and will be hiring it again for the next child.
Would 100% recommend this to any of my pregnant family and friends.
I loved using the Elle TENS during my labour. The machine helped me to ride the waves of my early contractions along with my partners support. I would recommend this device to all of my pregnant friends as it was a great addition to my labour kit!
I used the Elle tens a fair bit in the week leading up to labour. I was experiencing a fair bit of Braxton hicks contractions that were focused on my back. It was super helpful and allowed me to tolerate the pain. When the time came to give birth, I laboured with only my tens machine due to a precipitous labour. So I am so glad that I had pre-planned a natural form of pain relief as I couldn’t have anything else due to time. The tens machine was easy to use and light on the lanyard so it didn’t feel like a burden to carry around. It did relieve pain early on and was a great distraction to focus on in late active labour. I will definitely be hiring one again for future pregnancies.
Really wish I had known about Mama and I for my first birth. My first birth was an induction and I was not ready for the onset of contractions that came 1 minute apart from the get go, it really wasn't the birth i envisioned for my first time with a failed epidural and having the vacuum.
My second birth with the tens machine was such a different experience my contractions started on Wednesday morning at 1am 39 hours of inconsistent but strong contractions trying to turn my posterior bub would not have been easy without the tens machine they more than halved the intensity on just a low setting. As I progressed to second stage labour the boost button really helped me get through those strong contractions, so much so i was able to stay on my feet and keep moving to help bub make his way down. 41 hours on and one set of batteries, the last half an hour of labour i moved to the shower and used some gas for pushing but otherwise the only pain relief i used was the tens machine for 40 & a half hours of my 41 hours of contractions. I have not stopped telling all my pregnant friends that they need to order theirs!!
I was able to labour for the majority of my induction using only my tens machine , it was so helpful and kept me calm through the birth of my beautiful daughter thankyou
I never thought I'd say this but this machine got me through an induction with no other pain relief! It really was so great and made the pain bearable
but also gave something else to focus on. This was my second labour. My first was a challenging posterior labour needing an epidural and I wanted to try something different this time. I'm so glad I was able to avoid the epidural this time around as I wanted to be in and out of hospital ASAP given no visitors allowed (covid restrictions). The machine arrived really quickly and is easy to use and the returns process is very simple. Definitely recommend!
I used the tens machine during labor at home and at the time of using it I thought it was an “annoying” feeling but it definitely helped take my mind off the contractions. I ended up getting 5cm dilated at home with the help of the tens machine and no pain relief.
The Elle TENS machine was brilliant. I was able to easily set it up myself when my contractions started. It's compact and easy to use. I would highly recommend and would definitely use it again.
I hired a tens machine just incase, not really thinking I’d use it by on my goodness it was the only thing that got me through the 48hrs of early labour while I was at home. This was literally the best money I’ve ever spent, highly highly recommend!!
My partner also often has aches and pains from the gym and there was still 4 weeks left of hire after baby was here so he continued using it haha.
