I hired the tens machine for my first labour and I can’t imagine having gone through it without that clever little machine! I used it at home as soon as contractions started and it didn’t come off my back during the first 4 hours of labour until I was in transition (begging for drugs) and my midwife suggested I try hopping in the bath, so I took the machine off and jumped in but it didn’t compare at all with the tens machine. After about 40 minutes of them most intense contractions I got out of the water and got the machine straight on my back. By this stage her head was crowning and it was time to push! I think it helped having the machine on for so long (my whole labour was only 6 hours of contractions, still thanking my lucky stars!) I hadn’t felt a contraction without the machine until I tried the bath and at the time I just knew I needed the machine back on me.. I can’t recommend it enough and I truly believe it was the only thing that got me through labour without drugs which is the kind of birth I hoped I could have, so thank you to the moon and back team Sweet Beats!!!
