Testimonial Categories Archives: Labour Tens Machine Feedback

Here’s a sample of the feedback sent in by our customers. We really appreciate people taking the time to write in about their experiences using TENS in birth. Receiving feedback from TENS hire customers is one of the best parts of our job – we put all feedback up and really value it. The experiences from women are obviously personal, varied and subjective, but if we had to do a one sentence summary, we’d say that all women find TENS helpful for the early stages of labour, but once you get to the business end, experiences diverge. Some women power through on TENS alone, some women don’t want to use it anymore, and some women want additional analgesia.

We hope in all cases that the service component provided by Sweet Beats is always efficient, reliable and easy, and our feedback seems to say it is. We hope that reading these testimonials is helpful for you as you make your plans for your birth.

I just knew I needed the machine back on me

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!!!

Thanks again!
