i didn't get to use the TENS machine, soo disappointed about this. Our not so little VBAC baby decided to hang in for 42.2 weeks and once she was ready to come she came so quick i didn't get a chance to put it on. I have highly recommended your business to my friends!
I hired an Elle2 TENS machine for labour through Birthmother. My gosh I wouldn't labour without one
With an almost home birth, the TENS machine really helped get me through my contractions; the timer more than anything! Very easy to use and effective at pain management.
I am so glad that I heard about these TENS machines before the birth of my son. Birthmother made it so easy to hire and it arrived well before my due date so I could practice using the different functions. I started using it once my contractions began to increase their intensity and found it more effective than being in the shower with warm water. The Elle 2 TENS definitely helped me with my goal to get through labour without using any medication. I highly recommend using this and will be hiring one again for any future pregnancies.
Arrived promptly and was very helpful for labour. I'd definitely use it again for my next one.
