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.

How does hire work?
Hiring is the most cost-effective way to access the drug-free natural pain relief of the Elle TENS Plus. You’ll tell us your due date through our booking form, and we will have the Elle TENS to you 4 weeks before that date,  and then just use the included postal satchel to return it to us 4 weeks after your due date. We will send you a friendly email reminder when your Elle Tens Plus is due back.

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 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! Then drop it at your local Australia Post. 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.

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.

  • Elle TENS Plus machine
  • 4 x re-usable electrode pads
  • 2 x New AA batteries
  • 2 x Leadwires

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%!

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.

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!


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.

So easy and quick

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


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