'Just to be able to press a button to relieve each contraction was great. Also the ability to adjust the intensity and know that it can go higher was a huge relief. I found the Labour TENS unit the most convenient pain relief because you can take it anywhere and don’t need to undress.' Kas Volkamer.


'I was told that I would need another C-Section for my second baby because of the risks involved in VBAC...
With the help of a Doula, Labour TENS and my determination to have my second child the way I wanted to, I was able to give birth to my daughter naturally. After her shoulders were delivered I pulled her out myself with no need for any other pain relief.
Thank You Labour TENS'

'I used it in conjunction with gas. It was extremely powerful to have an aid that is within your control. It was very beneficial and I’d recommend it to others for pain relief.'
