Elle TENS Plus - 8 WEEK HIRE

The Elle TENS Plus is the most advanced TENS machine available in Australia.

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 Plus 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.

    Do yourself a favour and hire this machine for your labour!!!!

    Wow I am blown away by how effective the tens machine was for the birth of my second daughter. It was so effective, I did not need an epidural! I cannot recommend this machine enough, I'm telling all of my friends!

    The most amazing tool for labor!

    Incredible machine.
    I had a 35 minute posterior labor with a 9lb bub. Between using thr TENS and getting counter pressure on my back I felt barley any back pain and was a relatively "painless" labor! Third birth but first time using a TENS and I could not reccommend it highly enough!

    Erin Reeve (Sydney, AU)

    Could not have got through labour without it!

    Julia Quinn (Melbourne, AU)
    Tens magic

    I loved the tens machine it gave a great pain distraction from strong coccyx contractions. I would recommend this product and this company to all my pregnant friends.

    Peta Hornberg (Noosa, AU)
    Wouldn’t birth without!

    This amazing machine was a key player in my incredible birth experience! I used it at home in early labour to get me through the contractions. I wore the tens my whole labour and delivery and even an hour afterwards. I simply couldn’t have birthed the way I did without it. I came to the hospital fully dilated & had 2.5 hrs of pushing.
