What is a TENS machine?
An Elle Tens Plus is an easy to use, gentle way to relieve the pain of contractions during labour by amplifying all your body’s amazing natural pain blocking abilities. The gentle electrical pulses;
  • Block pain signals from reaching your brain
  • Build endorphins

The Elle Tens Plus is the ultimate in obstetric TENS, specifically designed for use during labour, and is perfectly safe for you and baby. TENS is the most effective pain relief you can use at home, and provides completely drug-free, natural relief from pain. The more comfortable and calm you are during the early stages of labour, the less interventions you are going to need, making it a must-have for your natural birth plan.

Should I choose the 4 week or 8 week hire?

Our 8 week hire is recommended for peace of mind to cover you through the most common weeks you could go into labour, plus a little extra to get it back to us in time.  We recommend selecting a date to begin the hire period roughly a month before your baby's due date. We'll send the TENS to arrive on or as close as possible to the date you selected to begin your hire period, then you can pop it back in the prepaid return post satchel when it is due back 8 weeks later.

The 4 week hire option is available for those who are due sooner. For those who select the 4 week hire option ahead of time, we recommend selecting a hire period start date at least 2 - 3 weeks before your baby's due date and we will schedule the machine to arrive on or as close as possible to that date.

We have a 4 week hire with PRIORITY SHIPPING option for those who may have left it to the last minute to hire and need a machine ASAP. The cost includes express delivery and will ensure the TENS arrives at your doorstep within 1 - 2 business days if you order before 12pm. 

We will send you a friendly email reminder when your Elle Tens Plus is due back.

How does hire work?

Hiring is the most cost-effective way to access the drug-free natural pain relief of the Elle TENS Plus.

Included in hire is everything you need;

  • The ultimate in obstetric tens; Elle TENS Plus including contraction timer
  • 1 x brand new reusable electrode pads set of 4 PLUS a complimentary additional electrode set
  • 2 x brand new AA batteries
  • 2 x leadwires
  • Soft carry pouch
  • Easy to read instructions
  • Australia Post envelope for easy pre-paid return
  • "You've got this Mama" carry satchel (Our free gift to you)

You select the start date of the hire period when you book and we will send it to arrive on that date, or as close as possible. You then return your Elle TENS Plus by placing the unit and all accessories in the provided prepaid pre-addressed return satchel, no need for a printer! Drop it at your local Australia Post and they will provide you with a receipt so that you can let us know it was submitted in case anything goes wrong.

Test your Elle TENS Plus as soon as you receive it. Familiarising yourself with the unit and its functions will make for a more stress-free experience when your labour begins. If you have any problems or questions make sure you contact us ASAP so we can make sure you have everything you need for a great birthing experience.

How fast can you get it to me?

We aim to get your machine to you on or before the first date of your hire period. If we are booked out in advance the first date you can expect your order is the day the hire period begins, regardless of the shipping option you select.

If you need your hire to arrive ASAP we recommend selecting the 4 week hire with Priority Shipping option and ensuring you select your hire date to begin tomorrow if the date is available. If you order before 12pm, your TENS should arrive within 1 - 2 business days.

Whether you are booking ahead of time, or last minute, selecting Express Post at checkout will ensure your parcel is prioritised by Australia Post in the event of a delay within their network.

What does the PRIORITY SHIPPING option mean?

We have a 4 week hire with Priority Shipping option for those who may have left it to the last minute to hire and need a machine ASAP. The cost includes express delivery and will ensure the TENS arrives at your doorstep within 1 - 2 business days, with same day dispatch if you order before 12pm. 

Changing the way women birth in Australia

Stay calm and in control at home for longer


Stick on

Attach the re-usable electrode pads to your upper and lower back.


Switch on

Bliss Birth TENS sends small pulses through the electrodes which feel like small vibrations.



The pulses interrupt the pain signals travelling to your brain, bringing instant relief.



Click the boost button during each contraction for a flood of extra sensation that cancels pain.

What’s in the kit?

  • Elle TENS Plus machine
  • 4 x re-usable electrode pads
  • 2 x New AA batteries
  • 2 x Leadwires
  • Soft carry pouch
  • Easy to read instructions
  • Pre-paid, pre-addressed satchel for easy return
  • “You’ve got this mama” satchel (our gift to you to keep)

Questions? We’ve got answers.

You can pre-book your hire now. One less thing to worry about! We’ll schedule your TENS kit to arrive 4 weeks before your due date and remind you when it’s due back 4 weeks after your due date.

Yes! We always have hire machines in stock. In the rare occurrence that there will be a delay with dispatch due to stock issues we’ll let you know ASAP and is likely to be 2 business days at most. Make sure you select Express post if you’re due in less than a month so we can make sure the TENS arrives before the baby does.

After you place your order you will automatically receive a PDF copy of your invoice which you can submit to your private health provider. Check that your Insurance covers ‘Pain Relief by Device’ or ‘Health Aids and Appliances’ cover. The rebate available differs between plans and providers, but may be up to 100%!
A guide to claiming your TENS hire or purchase on private health insurance

As the TENS uses electrical pulses to block pain signals to the brain, it is not able to be used when in water. But that doesn’t mean using a TENS is incompatible with a water birth! We recommend using TENS early on, when contractions are regular, and saving water for later when you are transitioning. Having lots of options in your birthing toolbox will mean you are empowered with choices.

A regular TENS machine from a chemist or Physio is great for painful joints etc but is missing a vital function – the boost button! Without this element a TENS machine is not an obstetric TENS, and you can’t amplify the pain fighting sensation during contractions so it’s going to be nowhere near as effective for your birth.

So worthwhile!

I was recommended to hire a tens machine from a midwife and also a friend who used it and I cannot thank them enough. This really helped me in my initial labour to get through the pain and focus on something else. I really loved it and will be telling others about it also!

A must have for labour

Best decision to hire a tens machine I don’t think I would have been able to get through the first half of labour without it. Would highly recommend for anyone to try. Process was very easy, prompt delivery, clear instructions and easy returns.
Thanks so much for having the Tens available to hire really helped me achieve the natural birth I was hoping for.


Absolutely essential for all women seeking to have a natural intervention free birth.

An absolute essential for labour

A TENS machine is an essential for labour. I have used one in both of my births and it has been the number 1 tool that I have used. My second labour was intense with 1 minute between contractions for 6 hours but I managed this without pain relief using a TENS. Blissbirth made the hire super easy and the package was beautifully presented. I would hire from them again!

Best decision ever!

Hiring the TENS machine was the best decision ever! It came on time and was so easy to post back. Super easy instructions to follow.
I don’t know what I would have done without this machine - it got me from the beginning of labour right through until delivery. Because of this machine I was able to have the natural, no intervention birth that I had planned! Thank you Bliss Birth!


The whole process with Bliss Birth from start to finish was so seamless! The TENs was such a great tool to have during labour, and so easy to use. The delivery and return process was really efficient. Would highly recommend Bliss Birth!
