How To Use the Perfect MamaTENS to Labour Longer at Home
When it comes to pregnancy, there’s something we often think about but don’t talk about nearly enough: Labour pain. As you move through your pregnancy, and get closer to the due date, thinking about labour pain management is going to become increasingly important.
There are a variety of options for pain relief during labour including medicinal options like epidural, morphine and laughing gas. If you’re looking for natural, drug-free options, a Labour TENS Machine is a very effective way to relieve labour pain naturally.
How Does a Labour TENS Machine Work?
Our favourite TENS (Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation) machine for labour pain is the Perfect MamaTENS from TensCare because it’s very compact and was specifically designed to help you labour longer in the comfort of your own home. It’s safe for both mother and baby and has been proven to reduce anxiety and pain related to labour contractions.
The Perfect MamaTENS uses electrode pads, placed on either side of your spine on the mid-back and lower back. When you turn on the device, it sends electrical nerve stimulations that release endorphins and interrupt pain signals to the brain.
Aside from providing pain relief, the MamaTENS machine can also allow you to remain upright and mobile for longer during labour, which can aid in dilatation and the decent of your baby. The MamaTENS comes with a travel kit so you can easily stash it in your labour bag, ready for when it’s time to go to the hospital!
How to Use the Perfect MamaTENS
Another thing that makes the MamaTENS great, is how simple it is to use, which is important when you’re dealing with intense contractions!
Our friends at Mother’s Choice Products have made a helpful video that explains how to use the device. Watch the video for a step-by-step guide to using the Perfect MamaTENS device:
Getting Ready for Labour
Planning for labour and choosing how to manage labour pain is very personal. The most important thing is to choose what works for you, but also allow yourself to be flexible because sometimes labour doesn’t go as planned. You can do this, mama!
