The must have item for your “go-bag”! A TENS machine offers drug-free pain relief for women in labour. Although there are many types of TENS, the maternity range have a BOOST button for extra support through each contraction/ surge/ wave.
Included in your hire:
– TENS machine
– new batteries
– 4 new electrode pads
– 2 x lead wires
– lanyard so you don’t have to hold it throughout labour
– paid return postage satchel
It is a flat hire fee for 8 weeks hire (I suggest you book from around 36 weeks to 4 weeks after your due date), giving you plenty of time to return it, even if you carry your baby for 42 weeks. Just remember to pop your machine, leads and lanyard into the pre-paid satchel and place it in your closest mailbox once your ready. You can opt for local pick up or delivery of your machine, but both these options include the return pre-paid satchel.
Obi TENS: The Obi TENS is the most simplistic labour TENS machine I stock. It’s as simple as turning it on and pushing the boost button during your contractions! With minimal extra features, it saves confusion when you are focussed on more important things – birthing your baby.
Elle TENS+: The Elle TENS+ is more versatile in it’s functions. It has a small screen which shows how long the boost button has been on and has the ability to fine tune the settings of the stimulation. Some women find this useful, others find it confusing.
