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.

The only significant difference between the Elle TENS 2 and the Elle TENS Plus, is that the Plus can be used in the postpartum period for birth pains, and as a pelvic floor trainer (however this is not included in your 8 week hire and is only permitted to be used from 12 weeks postpartum). Making it the perfect device for 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 in labour have been found to distract the pains of labour; block 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 during labour.
  • 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 in labour; it is safe for both mum and bub.

How does our TENS hire work?

Mama and I TENS offers a long hire period of 8 weeks, to allow ample time for bubs arrival, and importantly time for you to relax in the postpartum journey.

Select the date (on the calendar) when you would like to receive your TENS machine. The calendar will show the availability of the machine, by allowing you to select the date.  We recommend that you select to receive your TENS when you will be 36 weeks pregnant.

    Amazing service

    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.

    Best investment for labour and postpartum

    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!

    Happy Mumma

    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!

    A must have for labour

    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.
