More Health Services
TENS (Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation)
What is TENS?
TENS (Transcutaneous Electronic Nerve Stimulation) is a safe, effective, easy to use drug-free method of pain relief. It has been successfully used for many years by pregnant women and professional care providers worldwide to treat pain or inflammation and to ease the pain of labour and delivery. TENS is thought to stimulate the release of endorphins (happy hormones) in the body; our body’s own natural pain reliever. TENS is also thought to block pain signals from reaching the brain by using a pain gate control theory.
When should I use TENS?
You are encouraged to try out the unit when you bring it home or prior to going into labour so that you are familiar with how it works, have time to ask any questions you may have and feel the sensation it produces. *Remember, the pads are reusable, as long as you store them correctly
You can use TENS at home as soon as your labour begins, all the way through to post birth. *Remember to take it off if you have a shower or use a birthing pool!
Please take a look at our TENS Brochure for more information about TENS!
The advantages of using TENS during childbirth include:
-Allows mother to control her pain relief
-No effect on the baby
-Allows mother to be mobile during labour
