The Elle TENS machine is specifically designed to be an effective, natural, and safe source of pain management during the process for your birth. With our full 40 day rental, the TENS Machine can be used to provide relief during labor and in the early postpartum period. TENS (Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation) works by passing mild electrical impulses through the skin, via electrode pads, into the nerve fibres which lie below. The TENS pulses help your body produce its own pain killing chemicals, such as endorphins. The level of pain relief obtained varies from person to person.
How does the Elle TENS work? When labour begin, apply the four pads that are included in your rental onto your back as shown in the instructions and turn the TENS machine on. You will feel a pulsing sensation - which can be made stronger are labour progresses. This will help to raise the level of your own pain relieving endorphins. When a contraction starts, press the boost button for the extra surge of power needed to combat the pain. When the contraction ends, press the boost button again – super simple!
