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

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.
I laboured for about 4 hours at home with just the TENS. The contractions weren't unbearable thanks to the TENS but we're super close together so we decided to leave home. When I arrived at the hospital I was 6cms! I didn't have a completely unmedicated birth but that wasn't my goal.This allowed me to stay home much longer as hospitals make me a bit anxious. Baby arrived 3 hours after our arrival and I was out of hospital the next day so overall I would 100 per cent recommend the TENS, especially if you suffer from anxiety as it allows you control in what can be a very unpredictable experience
Thank you for this machine! This helped me labour at home for 10hrs before arriving at the hospital, where I had the baby within half an hour of arriving! Even the midwives were impressed for a first-time mum - and this wasn’t even with the machine on full! Would highly recommend.
Your tens machine helped me have a pain free birth & I have never felt so empowered and proud of my
Body. Thank you!!
I highly recommend the use of a TENS machine during labour. The boost function was amazing when I was having contractions and really took the edge off. This meant I didn't need to use any other pain relief and could stay at home for as long as possible before going to hospital.
The hire process was super easy and delivery was on time. Very easy to return the TENS machine with the included postage bag.
Labour TENS Hire
Super happy with my hiring experience and the tens machine itself is great. I love that it came with batteries so you don’t have to worry about that.
Thanks so much will be using it next time!
I was able to use the TENS as a Key part of my VBAC (Vaginal Birth After C-section) toolkit. My 4.74kg baby (10pound 4 ounce) boy was born after 14hour labour with only TENS, hot water, gas and air and music for distraction/pain relief. do try it before the labour to see if you like it!
