It was a late night scroll of my Facebook due date group (hello, pregnancy insomnia) when I first heard of the TENS. I asked my midwife and she recommended I order one, but wasn't sure which one and from where. I almost ordered the cheapest one I found off eBay, until I realised there were machines that were designed for labour and realised I could hire it.
My birth was less than perfect, but my TENS machine got me through so much. From there I told everyone who would listen about how incredible the TENS was.
The Birth Store was always an idea in the back of my mind, but it wasn't until I was pregnant with Harvey that I decided to take action. I was 35 weeks pregnant when I finally launched our small family business. It took off quicker than expected and has been an interesting journey, as I was navigating postpartum and a newborn & toddler, too. It's been a few long nights and days and weeks that fly by, but I'm so thankful to our business and all of the amazing support we've received.
