WHAT IS TENS?
+ a super popular form of birth pain relief, that is portable and battery operated. The beauty of TENS, is that it can be utilised when labouring at home and in hospital.
+ the electrical pulses emited from the TENS, prevent pain signals from reaching your brain whilst releasing feel good hormones, called endorphins.
+ it offers a distraction from your contractions, helping you to feel in control of your labour.
I was induced the first time I used the Mama and I TENS machine and while I really liked it, I had it on so early, I don’t think I noticed the same difference I did with my second labour. It made my contractions so much more manageable to the point that we didn’t go to hospital until we were almost ready to push! I was scared to take it off when my plan was to hop in the bath because it gave me so much relief! I will never ever labour without the hire of this device because it enabled be to have such a beautiful birth experience and be mentally present for it all! Thank you Mama and I TENS
I organized my TENs hire early on in my 3rd pregnancy ready to come at 38 weeks. I was determined to have an intervention and pain relief free birth for my third and final bub. At about 36 weeks I was pretty sure she wasn’t going to wait until 38 weeks so I emailed Bianca to see if I could get the TENs earlier just in case. She was amazing, and express posted it to me the same day. I was admitted at 36+5 bc of PROM and my baby girl came bang on 37 weeks with only the use of my TENs and a labour comb. I cannot express how grateful I am to Bianca and her over and above customer service! ❤️
TENS was always highly rated in ABS podcasts/ birth class and through many Mums on Instagram. It was great to have the machine well before labour so we knew how it worked and what it felt like. It was fantastic in the early stages of labour and all the way up until I had the epidural. It took my mind off the contractions and an item I will recommend to all Mummas heading into child birth.
Super fast shipping, lovely packaging and easy to use/find instructions. I found the machine super helpful and a relief in the beginning of my labour but it progressed into a back labour and it didn’t find it helpful after that. Will definitely hire again if I have another baby in the hopes it doesn’t turn into another back labour. ❤️
I hired the elle tens 2machine and it arrived in 2 days, the machine was perfectly in order and it came with all the necessary parts in a lovely satchel. II love that this machine also measured the contractions which was ver useful to time our arrival at the hospital. Highly recommend mama and ico for their impeccable service and offerings.
I used this during my birth and honestly its a life saver.. it helped me endure the pain without the need for the epidural
I hired the Elle TENS 2. The machine is easy to use, simple buttons and straightforward instruction manual that is easily accessible online (via QR code). I used the machine for a long prodromal labour (5 days) and during birth. The machine provided me with a distraction (like vibrations on my back) and some pain relief. I loved the machine and would 100% recommend trying it!
The TENS machine helped me achieve the most empowering birth and I wore it right up until I jumped into the bath during transition. Could not have made it through early and active labour without. Great customer service, arrived on time and so easy to return.
I just wanted to say how amazing the service is at Mama and I TENS. I had a short cervix during my pregnancy and at 36+3 my obstetrician took me off the progesterone medication I'd been using to stabilise my cervix. I wasn't sure how long my cervix would hold up once I stopped the progesterone, and I hadn't organised a TENS machine at that stage as I wasn't expecting to be taken off the progesterone for at least another week. I emailed Mama and I TENS on the Sunday night to ask if there was a TENS Plus I could hire starting from that Tuesday (despite the calendar saying there was no availability until 2 weeks later, by which time I thought it would be too late!). By the Monday morning, Bianca had arranged for a TENS Plus to be sent out to me that day and I received it the following day (bang on 37 weeks). I can't explain how much of a relief it was knowing I had the TENS Plus there just in case I went into labour early, and am so incredible grateful to Bianca for arranging it on such short notice and for the prompt shipment. Turns out I made it to 40+2 and needed to be induced, and didn't end up using the TENS during my labour as it happened very quickly, so I can't comment on how effective it was for pain relief.
I highly, highly recommend Mama and I TENS and I will certainly hire one again for bub #2 (if and when that happens!).
Thank gosh for the TENS! My labour intense, but using the TENS machine made it bearable. I birthed my baby girl without any other interventions and i put it down to TENS. Hiring through Mama and I was so simple. Thank you!
I hired through Mama & I TENS for the birth of my first born, and decided to hire with them again for my second due to the ease and positive first time experience.
I went into spontaneous labour at home and applied the TENS early on, using it as my main source of relief/distraction. My daughter was born within an hour of arriving to the hospital with the use of only the TENS. I couldn’t recommend it more highly and truly believe it is the reason I have had two beautiful, empowering & unmedicated births.
Five stars. So happy I hired a tens. I haven't stopped raving about it to everyone. I was 7cm when I got to hospital and was in such shock that the tens helped hinder the pains. Wonderful service too mama and I. I've been telling all of my friends tl get a tens
All I needed for birth! Don't think twice about hiring it - do it. I was completely sceptical about it but it was phenom
I’d heard amazing things about the machines – I was going to hire one for my first birth but missed the boat, i also didn’t know where to look. so many of my firneds had mentioned mama and i and they seemed to be the best price with great reviews.
It made the world of difference for our birth experience with Mila.
I couldnt help but come back for more, and i was just as impressed second time around. I managed to have another drug free birth with just the tens and i felt so at ease for our second baby knwoing i had the machine in case things really ramped up at home. I tell everyone about tens and cannot speak more highly of your service. if it werent for you i wouldnt have had the brith of my dreams. thanks guys
