What Is TENS?

TENS stands for Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation.

How TENS Works

TENS sends a very small electric current through the skin which stimulates your body's own natural defences against pain. TENS is totally safe, has been used by thousands of expectant mothers and is recommended by midwives.

Pain Gate

The sensory nerves which carry touch and temperature signals are stimulated. These nerves go to the same connections in the spine as the nerves carrying pain. A strong sensory signal will block the pain signal travelling up the spine to the brain, this is known as the "Pain Gate".

Endorphin Release

At low frequency settings, and slightly stronger output, TENS drives the motor nerves to produce a small repetitive muscle contraction. This is seen by the brain as exercise, and this promotes release of Endorphins - your body's own natural pain killer. The relief builds up and normally takes about 40 minutes to reach a maximum level which can last for hours.

When You Can Use TENS?

You can use TENS at home as soon as your contraction pain starts, and take it to hospital with you. Just remember to take it off if you use a birthing pool.
After you have had your baby, if you are in pain consider using the unit, as it will give you relief. Even if you had a caesarean you can use the unit to give you relief from pain afterwards.

The Advantages Of TENS

The advantages of using TENS during childbirth include:
• Totally safe
• Allows mother to control her pain relief
• No effect on the baby
• Allows mother to be mobile during labour


There are no known side effects from TENS use, and long term stimulation is not harmful.

Using Maternity TENS

Specially designed for women in labour
The electrode pads and MamaTENS units are small and unobtrusive, allowing you to move around, as you need to.
The maternity TENS stimulation programmes have been pre-set, so that you don't have to fiddle around with the controls. You can take MamaTENS into hospital with you, or use it at home.
MamaTENS will help you to relax and prepare for the birth of your baby, taking you right through labour, from the first contractions to delivery.
The MamaTENS is also useful after the birth, easing after-pains as your uterus contracts, and helping you to manage the discomfort of an episiotomy or tear.
When labour begins, your midwife or birth partner can attach the electrodes to your back, as shown in the picture. Plug the electrodes into your control unit and you are ready to begin using the MamaTENS. Positive effects can be felt immediately.
It has a user variable 'low-level' output for the relief of mild pain and a 'high-level' output (known as Boost mode), for enhanced pain suppression during labour contractions.

Advantages Of TENS

The advantages of using TENS during childbirth include:
• No effect on baby
• Safe and easy to use
• Puts you in control
• Significant reduction of pain
• Non-invasive

How TENS Works In Childbirth

Large reusable pads go each side of your spine in two positions to intercept the nerves carrying pain from all over the abdomen.
MamaTENS has different programs that you select with one button press to cope with the changing pattern of pain as labour progresses.
A built-in boost button increases the effect to provide additional relief during contractions.
