Does the TENS work for birth?
It feels like the best kept secret in birthing, but TENS really can make all the difference for your birth experience.
By blocking pain signals to the brain our TENS will help you stay calmer for longer, reducing the need for pharmaceutical interventions and the associated risks. Research shows that TENS helps women to have less pain, and feel more in control, leading to empowered birth experiences.
We're on a mission to spread the word and make this technology more accessible, and in just a few years thousands of Australian women have experienced the difference this little device can make.
But don't take our word for it!
You can read the dozens of birth stories shared by our lovely customers about how using a TENS transformed their birth stories, from VBACs to healing natural births after previous birth trauma, to accidental home births - we've been there for them all!
Or check out our hundreds of 5 star reviews from mamas all around Australia who have loved the TENS for their birth;
This was the first time I’d ever had to use this type of device so I was intrigued on what the relief would feel like. It was a massive relief in early labour and was my only form of pain relief I took until 5cm dialated. I would recommend it to all my pregnant mamas to use 100%!
Great service and fast delivery. Package came and was well presented also. Unfortunately I didn’t get the chance to use the machine in my labour but again great easy service nonetheless.
I used the tens machine for both pregnancy. I highly recommend especially during first stages of labor.
Bliss birth ensured fast delivery and easy returns.
This is my second birth using the hired tens and they can’t be recommended highly enough. My contractions came really strong and fast and the tens got me in a great head space ready for a perfect water birth. The hire process was easy.
Excellent product - so glad someone recommended it to me!! Arrived very quickly
Could not have gotten through my second labour without it. Only used Gas on lowest setting for my first 12 hour labour and felt quite hurt about the pain I experienced. When I fell pregnant again I was really scared about going through labour again. This time I hired the tens machine and just used that for pain management and it got me through a quick intense 3 hour labour. A labour this time I feel proud of. The machine just takes the edge of the intensity of the contractions but is mostly a really welcome distraction, if I ever had another labour I would definitely use again. I ordered mine at about 37 weeks pregnant and it got to me in Vic within a couple of days. Also loved how everything you needed was in the one pouch with easy to use instructions. Definitely recommend you and your birth partner practicing using it before labour. Thank you Bliss Birth
Labour TENS Hire
I wore my TENS for about 16 hours whilst labouring at home before going to the hospital and it is a great pain management tool and also is really convenient to track the time between contractions with the boost button.
I would certainly use one again and recommend to others.
Machine came with spare pads and battery. Battery lasted the duration I used the machine (14 hours) . Rode through my contractions and allowed me to focus on relaxing during contractions. Great for seeing how far apart contractions are. Easy to pack up and send back. Thanks for providing such an easy service. Will use if have another child!
This Ten's machine is AMAZING! I cannot recommend it enough! It helped me immensely through my 24hr contraction! And i had it attached to me till my baby was born. Got to hospital at 6cm and had my baby drug free only used the gas. I cannot recommend it enough and i will be telling all my other future mama friends to have one. Will definitely hire another tens machine when we decide to have another baby!
Second time I have used Bliss birth for my tens machine. It takes away all the fuss during the crazy newborn period.
Quick order, smooth arrive and easy to send back.
The timer on the unit is super handy for monitoring contraction times.
Thank goodness for the TENS! My labour was fast and intense, but using the TENS machine made it (almost!) bearable. I birthed my baby girl without any other interventions and it was incredible. Hiring through Bliss Birth was easy and 10/10 will definitely do it again for future pregnancies!
The TENS machine hire was an essential for my birth!!! Without it I dont think I could have gotten to 8cm dilated without pain relief. The hire process was simple and easy, the set up was simple and the machine worked wonderfully to help me manage contractions both at home labouring and in the hospital. Even better the post bag comes ready to send the item back! Making it a breeze for a new mum.
The TENS machine helped heaps with my pain and I did my labour drug free while using only the TENS and gas. Thank you
