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!

So easy and quick

Received it promptly, loved using it during labour and so easy and straight forward to send it back!

LOVE!

Absolute game changer for pain management! STM and would not hesitate to hire again :D

Love the botanical pregnancy oil and sleep mist. Both smell amazing!! I really enjoyed the night-time ritual taking time to connect with my baby and relax during my pregnancy. Thank you!

A must hire

I don’t think I would have gotten through my contractions without the TENS machine. So great that you can hire it for a long period. Make sure you test it out before use as this was my one regret. You may not have as much time as you think during labour.
Thanks Bliss Birth!

Couldn't have done it without my TENS

I have used the tens machine twice now, for my second and third baby. I cannot recommend it highly enough. My second and third birth were over in 5 hours, one was an induction and both without pain relief. Get it on early and buzz away. It really helps you take your mind off the contractions. I believe if I didn’t have the tens I would have been reaching for any type of drug at around 5cm!

My midwives were amazed!

Popped on the TENS early in my induced labour and as things started to ramp up it surprised me how helpful it was to have a button to press and the different sensations. Well into active labour I’m told with midwives and drs who checked in on me were amazed that I’d got so far with just the TENS and breathing. The pads stayed sticky when repositioning as bub moved lower and it was easy for me to bump up the intensity throughout my labour. When the call was made for an emergency caesarean I nearly cried when told the TENS had to come off before heading to theatre, I really underestimated just how effective it was going to be for me and would absolutely recommend it to anyone unsure of trying it. It’s subtle in the way it works but so good.

Couldn’t do without it

This ended up being the only thing I used to get through my second labour. It was effective, convenient, easy to use & I just love how simple they make the whole process of ordering/returning. Recommend this product & service to everybody!

Lifesaver

The TENS machine was the MVP of my labor and in so many different ways. During early labor it helped so much with timing my contractions for me and then when contractions became really intense pushing the boost button became such a welcome mental coping mechanism that I wasn’t aware I’d rely on so much. I ordered my machine very late and express shipping had it arriving well before my due date and it had everything I needed. Super easy to understand instructions and everything I needed to easily pop it in the post back. I’ve already recommended Bliss Birth to my friends who’ve now hired their own machines.

Definitely worth it!

As I’ve heard the TENS machine works really well in early labour. Unfortunately, I didn’t get to experience that as my labour was quick. However, I still managed to get it on and I found it great! I was able to focus on using the boost button as a distraction and it still provided a little bit of relief from the intense contractions.

Love the TENS!

Loved using the TENS machine during labour. Very easy to hire - it arrived 4 weeks prior to my due date, easy instructions to follow and prepaid satchel with return address for easy return. Can’t imagine going into labour without a tens handy, such a brilliant way to help manage contractions and avoid interventions. Thank you!!!

Labour life saver

Through the use of the TENS machine I was able to progress to 5cm whilst remaining at home. This was a huge thing for me and allowed me to transition from home to hospital, and then through the remainder of my labour, whilst feeling like I had control over my contractions and the eventual birth of my son. I highly recommend the TENS machine, especially with consideration to how easy it was to hire and return through Bliss Birth. If you’re questioning whether it’s worth it, the answer is yes!

Great pain relief option in labour

Second time labour and second time using TENS through Blissbirth. Like last time, it made a great pain relief option which I got a lot of use out of and really appreciated. Super easy ordering and arrived with plenty of time and no issues. Return process also easy. Husband appreciated the easy to read instructions when he was applying the pads during labour!! Would definitely use again.

Got me through early labour!

100% recommend the tens. I had this on from the start of prelabour and it made a world of difference.

The best thing!

If you want a physiological birth with minimal interventions and you want methods to distract you from the pain of contractions, I highly recommend getting a TENS machine. It was really helpful to be able to "do something" when each contraction would start. I used it for about 4-5 hours in early labour until I arrived at the hospital and got into a birthing pool, at which point I was 6 cm dilated.
Also has a really great experience purchasing from Bliss Birth, it arrived super quickly and the return was easy to.

An amazing support through the marathon of birth

When I decided to aim for a VBAC for the birth of my second child, I armed myself with as much knowledge and support as I could. In listening to the Australian Birth Stories podcast, I kept hearing about the amazing comfort measure a TENS machine could be. When I decided to get one, I knew that a rental from Bliss Birth would be the easiest, smoothest option to get a quality machine. I spent a full day in gentle, early labour needing nothing but a little breath and movement to get through contractions. When that changed, and I could no longer sleep or lie down between them, I popped on the TENS machine and just loved the distracting sensation of the tingling on my back from the electrode pads. I loved focusing on the boost function during a contraction, and the fact that the screen would tell me the time that had passed since the last contraction, and the duration of each one. I had a looonggg time before active labour really kicked in, so I spent a full night, the next day, and another half a night using the TENS machine for relief. I only took it off when finally in hospital, as the contraction sensation moved to become very low and intense in my abdomen. I took it off, said goodbye to its trusty support, and then jumped into the shower for the last hour of labour, including an incredibly intense, 20 minute pushing phase. It had done its job so well. It was a huge part of my drug-free, empowering VBAC. Sending it back was a breeze, made easy even for a sleep-deprived mum of two :)

Worth every penny

Such a seemless easy process and I am oh so grateful I had the tens machine during my labour.

Exceptional service

My Tens machine arrived very quickly. I used my tens machine all the way through my labour and birth and did not need any other pain intervention, which I was so happy about! Service was exceptional, especially after I realised I put down the wrong due date, with less than a week til my due date I contacted bliss birth and they sent out my tens machine that day and I received it a couple days later. Thankyou!

Great labour tool and seamless hire process

The tens hire was brilliant - quick to receive and easy to return with the labelled Australia Post bag included (perfect for those of us with baby brain). I loved that I had some time after birth to return the machine, allowing me to get on top of things before getting on top of admin. The machine really helped throughout my whole labour - from very early stages through to the delivery room. While it certainly didn't take my pain away it help to manage it. Overall it was a great experience and I would highly recommend!

I loved having the TENS machine and used it from the start of my labour.
We received it weeks before my due date so it was ready to go. Instructions were great and easy to follow. Highly recommend!

Amazing !

Highly recommend using a TENS in labour. It got me through 19 hours of contractions before needing any further pain relief due to exhaustion.

Wow what a machine!

I was a bit skeptical about this machine even though had multiple people recommend it.
Labour started on its own for me and this machine was a lifesaver! I think I liked the fact that it distracted me and allowed me to press something for some pain relief!
I was able to stay at home for 8 hours with this machine and got to the hospital and was 8cm dilated!

Continued on until full dilation with this machine.

Highly recommend! 👏🏼
