I had an epidural for my first as I was induced but only having gas and the TENS machine this time was a way better experience.

I ordered my tens machine but Australia post had delayed processing it. I contacted Celeste at the birth store and she was straight into sorting a quick solution for me. Device arrived just in time for my 38 week labour and helped me so much during my posterior labour - highly recommend
It was my first pregnancy. I was induced but wanted to labour drug free for as long as possible.
This would not have been possible without my Tens Machine.
My contractions came on hard and fast and with just the tens machine I was able to labor for 2 hours before needing an epidural.
Without it I would have needed drugs within minutes.
Al the mid-wives also commented on how much they love Tens.
A definite if you want to experience labor drug free.
With my first, I didn't use a tens machine, big mistake! This machine was perfect for the first part of my labour until I got in the shower. Easy enough for my husband to operate and super simple return process. Highly recommend!!!
I didn’t think the process of getting tens machine is so easy! I chanced upon this website as I was planning for my second child labour. As soon as I had my early Labor started, where contractions and back pain kicked in, I didn’t take off my tens machine. I don’t think I can sleep/nap in between contractions without this! It’s been so helpful for me. Thank you!
I distinctly remember being in early labour and calling the hospital, and how excited the midwife was that I had a TENS machine. She said to put it on straight away and keep labouring at home - I truly believe this enabled me to stay home until labour was fully established and then it was all systems go!
I loved having something to focus on when I felt a contraction coming. Admittedly I did take it off during the pushing phase (lots of changing positions and forgetting to press it) but I had the unmedicated birth I dreamed of and I truly credit the TENS for helping me to get there!
My labour progressed quickly, which I wasn’t expecting, but the TENS machine really helped me manage the pain as I waited and til I got to the birth suite. The process for ordering and returning was easy.
I used the tens machine from early labour right until she was on my chest. I fully believe it was the reason I was able to birth, completely unassisted by pain relief. That boost button is amazing!! Couldn’t recommend more highly.
I hired the TENS machine after reading many positive reviews and word of mouth recommendations and I’m so glad I did! I went into labour when I was day 5 covid positive and felt really defeated that I may not have been able to have the birth experience I envisioned. I put the TENS machine on at home when my contractions started to intensify and laboured for 3-4 hours with it. Baby was posterior so I was feeling the contractions front and back throughout my labour. I used it on our way to the hospital and during the 2 hours I was in active labour once we were in the birthing suite. I honestly don’t think I could have managed to get through the contractions without it, it not only helped with the pain but also provided something else for me to focus on which I think played a big part in keeping myself calm and focussed. If you are looking at trying to have a non-medicated birth than definitely get yourself a TENS machine and I also highly recommend using hair combs to squeeze in your hands during contractions!
I had heard about TENS machines prior to having my second baby, so thought I would give one a try. It was the best decision. The hire and return process was really easy (although it took a couple of weeks to arrive from when I ordered due to Aus Post, so recommend ordering for a much earlier date than what you anticipate). I planned to use an epidural in my labour in the final stages, and the TENS was fantastic for enabling this. Without it I wouldn't have been able to stay active and upright for as long as I did, and I was super surprised by the relief it provided. Would definitely use again for my next baby!
Firstly, I was abit late in ordering my tens machine ( baby brain) and I was in direct contact with the girls from the birth store and they helped me locate a tens machine that would be back in for my dates and had it shipped out to me as soon as possible! They made the process seems so effortless and they were so understanding and supportive through all contact!
I used my tens machine for a massive part of my labour nearly 9 hours and it was my saving grace! I couldn’t have done it without it as it really did help divert the pain else where through each contraction and give my body a different sensation. I honestly do not think I could have labourers the way I did without the tens machine.
I will definitely be hiring a tens machine from the birth store again in the future.
Firstly I used my TENS machine for most of my labour ( and it was a long 24 hour labour)!! It was incredible especially when labouring at home but even still at the birth centre. I would highly recommend it as an amazing pain relief!! You won’t regret it!
If I ever have another baby I’ll be hiring from the birth store again!
Secondly the delivery was really easy and it comes with everything to be sent straight back post birth ( so easy once baby has arrived just put it back in the pre filled parcel and ask someone to drop off for you).
This was an amazing machine to help me through early contractions helped me rest. Great service from the Birth store. I would definitely use again.
So thankful I hired a TENS Machine it was an absolute life saver through 46hrs of labour!! Would highly recommend hiring one and will recommend this service to all my pregnant mumma friends.
So grateful for the Tens machine! I didn’t have any other interventions apart from this.
Will be recommending

It was quick, raw, wild and so primal. While it was far from quiet, calm and gentle, both Ben and I couldn’t have done it without the help, support and...
The TENS machine was a life saver in the early parts of labor and I would 10/10 recommend. So easy to use, the battery was fantastic, it really helped me...
