Can the TENS Machine be Used in the Water?

No, unfortunately your TENS machine cannot get wet so it cannot be used with water.

โ€ข If you want to use the shower in early labour, you can take the TENS off and put it back on after once you are completely dry โ€“ though we are also told people often do not do that twice because they find the TENS so helpful.
โ€ข If you want to have a waterbirth, you can use your TENS machines until transition (or whenever you feel the need to switch) and then you can hop in the pool for the later stages
โ€ข If you are weighing up your choices, you can have the TENS there set up and ready to go and use it for if you feel like the water isnโ€™t offering the relief youโ€™d hoped

It is important to remember though that the TENS machine isnโ€™t water resistant so if you are using water at any point youโ€™ll need to ensure you are completely dry before operating it again. Placing the electrodes on wet skin can also reduce the adhesiveness which is something to consider when reapplying the pads.
