Please see Elle TENS Plus Instruction Manual
For hire is the Elle TENS Plus, the most advanced natural pain management device for labour available in Australia. TENS (Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation) is a natural pain relief tool for your labour, as it assists and distracts you from the pains of labour, helping you through the labour process. Your hire booking is for 8 weeks. You will receive the TENS on or just before you are 36 weeks.
A must-have for your birth plan / hospital bag
The 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 & helps build endorphins, allowing for an overall better labouring experience.
The Elle Tens Plus is the ultimate in obstetric TENS, specifically designed for use during labour, and is perfectly safe for you and baby. The Elle Plus is more advanced as it has both a Birth mode and Pain Mode. So you may prefer one mode over the other during your labour, or use the Pain mode at home during your postpartum. Your gel pads can be reused many times if they are kept clean, and placed back on their film after labour use. Use the TENS at home for after birth pains, cramping or sciatica or birth trauma pain. If you would like to purchase extra gel pads, you can find them here.
How does hire work?
Let us know your due date in the calendar section on the hire page. We will have the TENS machine to you at 36 weeks gestation. If you require the TENS before 36 weeks gestation, after you have booked, please email firstname.lastname@example.org letting us know.
You will receive a reminder when your TENS hire is due back to us, just so you don't forget too.
Your TENS hire will include all that is needed to use the TENS:
- 8 week hire of Elle TENS Plus, inbuilt contraction timer and Birth mode.
- 6 x brand new reusable electrode pads. (additional 2 x electrodes as spares or if you need to use the TENS in the immediate postpartum)
- 2 x brand new AA batteries (we do recommend organising yourself a second set of batteries just in case).
- 2 x leadwires
- A versatile vegan leather carry pouch FREE Valued at $14.95
- A gorgeous birth affirmation card (postcard size).
- Easy to read instruction card (full instruction manual can be found in the link above).
- Australia Post Prepaid sticker for easy pre-paid return, to be placed onto the compostable satchel that the TENS arrives in. (Caring for the environment).
- A delicious lactation cookie made by Sweet Graze (chock chip OR white choc & Macadamia) and a Mame Me Tea in case you need some energy during or after labour.
You can book your TENS whenever. If you prebook, we will ensure that your TENS arrives to you around your 36 weeks gestation. If you are due very soon, we will aim send your hire off as soon as possible. Safer to choose Express Shipping at checkout.
You return the TENS machine back to us by placing the machine and all its contents/accessories by in the reusable pink satchel that your TENS hire arrived in (remember to cut the satchel at the dotted line for reuse). Then drop it at your local Australia Post. Please keep your receipt from Australia Post so that you can show us in case something goes wrong with the return. You will also receive a reminder when your TENS hire is due back to us, just so you don't forget.
Test your Elle TENS unit 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 contact us ASAP so we can make sure you have everything under control for your beautiful birthing experience.
DO NOT FORGET to check with your Health Insurance. Depending on the level of health cover, you may be eligible for a partial or full rebate on the hire or purchase of TENS units.
Hi, Yes came the day before I was scheduled for induction, I was only given a days notice so it was lucky timing. It was the best thing for pain relief, nothing else worked. I’ll be recommending to every up coming Mum. Thank you so much ?
Thank you so much for letting me hire a TENS machine which was a great help during my long labour. I decided to go with a completely natural birth with mo epidural and TENS machine helped me go through contractions with less pain & i'm so grateful for having the little gem with me. lots of love .
Thank you for your amazing customer service and products. This machine helped to enable a beautiful experience for me (& an epidural) All the best Kathleen.
Birthmother went above and beyond to help me sort out the confusion i had with using the tens machine i hired from them. I appreciate the little pamphlet that came in my satchel bag that i initially missed. Thank you ! Will recommend your business to others.
I cannot explain how much I loved my experience because of this machine! Goes to show that everyone is different as I know it’s a hit or miss, for me personally it was an absolute life saver, I put it on as soon as my contractions started. I had a home birth & kept it on right to till the end before I got into the pool to start pushing. I personally felt best while walking, so I went for a long walk with the machine on & I just can’t explain how much this machine helped me. Highly recommend giving this a try, especially for after labor pain, I did not take it off as i was in absolute agony for a week straight! So grateful.
