Manufacturer's Description
More and more women are avoiding harmful drugs to ease the pain caused by childbirth. Instead, they are choosing TENS; a drug-free, non-invasive method of pain relief, which works in harmony with the body, and is recommended by midwives.

Thanks to its power, simplicity, attractiveness and comfort, MamaTENS is the most popular TENS machine in the UK. A recent customer survey showed that 90% of mothers who used MamaTENS would use it again.

TENS works by stimulating the body's own natural defences against pain. TENS (Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation) has an excellent reputation as one of the safest, most effective forms of modern pain control available to women during childbirth. The treatment is medically approved, widely recommended, and totally free of side-effects for both mother and baby.

The MamaTENS transmits gentle, electrical signals through the skin via four self-adhesive pads, positioned on the back. These harmless impulses attack pain in two ways: by stimulating the release of endorphins, the body's own pain relieving hormones, and by stimulating the "pain gate", which stops pain signals from reaching the brain.

Following extensive research, the MamaTENS has been especially designed for use during labour. Digital technology and pre-set programmes eliminate the need to fiddle with dials, making it easy to choose the correct programme and achieve the desired level of intensity.

The three programmes are used progressively during the labour, starting on programmes A and B, which stimulate endorphins, through to programme C, which has a ramp facility and targets the Pain Gate. The integral Boost Button quickly raises the levels of pain relief, for use during contractions.

By using MamaTENS, the mother remains mobile, lucid, and in control of her own pain relief. When used from the first signs of labour pain, it helps her to remain at home for longer, as well as being suitable for use in the hospital. MamaTENS is also beneficial after the birth, easing post-natal pains as the uterus contracts and helping to manage the discomfort of an episiotomy or tear. It is even effective for post-caesarean pain.

MamaTENS can also be used for general pain relief, such as back or period pain, so long as it is not used before the 37th week of pregnancy. With this in mind, it is an ideal pain-relief device to have around the home, suitable for all members of the family. Replacement electrodes are available; for hygiene reasons, fresh pads should be used for each person.

The MamaTENS is supplied as a complete kit with full instructions, a pictorial guide, and a pack of four 100x50mm pads with integral leads. This unique feature ensures that the MamaTENS is the most hygienic maternity TENS on the market. The MamaTENS (unit only) includes a two-year guarantee. Should you have any questions or require more advice on the use of MamaTENS, we also run a helpline on 0845 230 4647.

Great - the inexplicable cold voters are in attendance as ever - at least explain why you're voting cold please!

It is cold, because TENS is as near useless as anything that ever appears on the pages of this site, and if anyone is hoping for drug free childbirth relying on this, prepare to be sadly disappointed, and be sure to be well prepared for the pharmaceutical alternative or a lot of pain! :-(

These things get pushed so often, mostly by those with vested interest, I can't even be bothered now to dig out the references that have been quoted again and again, on these pages, just search for threads on TENS, they may be still there - but look there and elsewhere for EVIDENCE based studies and you will find those which bear out other and my own personal experience as a Chronic pain sufferer of many years who has given it a long and tenacious trial with negligible benefit.

Rather than wast money, get in early, try out a borrowed one out on trivial pain like a slight headache, then just imagine Childbirth with it! If you can't take my word on it, or try it out first, then just remember this - I have no axe to grind: it's no skin off my nose if you don't, I won't be the one suffering the unabated pain!

The highlighted words makes you look as though you have no idea what you're talking about. If there's one thing you shouldn't do is use a TENS unit on your head!

Well, in which case, would that not be yet more proof of what a SCAM TENS is, as that is one of the major selling points!

However, it merely serves to prove either your lack of knowledge, or the extremes of attempts to make money out of long suffering poor souls!

I could go on and on for quite some time, but as something that is like snake oil, to cure all ills, a few claim TENS to be the universal panacea, there is a lot of thee claims out there :-(


BTW, since writing this reply, I have noted that your nickname is EXTREMELY offensive, certainly the most offensive I have ever seen on any moderated site. As well as blocking you personally, as I have no desire to correspond in any form with anyone with this sort of mentality, I have reported this to the moderators :-(

^ is this guy for real? :whistling:

Yeah, I've read your nonsense on another tens thread - hilariously uninformed.

Facts are that these machines are helpful to a large number of people - of which you obviously aren't one - but that doesn't mean they are 'near useless' - you can't base solely that on your own experience - that's a very ignorant statement.

If you know anything about scientific studies, you will know that for every study undertaken to show something works, there will be another to disprove it. If you want to search for something to back up your experience - you won't have to look too far.

They are not intended to provide a 'drug free' labour - but to assist those who would rather not rely on opiates to control their pain, and therefore have a more natural birth.

"I have no axe to grind" - yeah, seems that way:whistling::oops:

Yeah, I saw that deal and from what I've been told - these are far superior - they have double the number of electrodes etc and are the machine that are commonly hired out.

If it helps someone interested in buying one of these rather than the £10 cheapy one from Lloyds - that's cool.:thumbsup:

This has gone up to nearly £35 now, but still a fantastic deal.

Paid £45 for this exact item from Amazon 3 weeks ago (wife's due today). I emailed them requesting a refund of the difference, but the apparently changed that policy in September, so I missed the boat there :(

I successfully used only a tens machine when I was in labour with my first child 6 years ago. My labour only lasted 5 hours and I was totally drug free and in control. I would recommend this to anyone. My second is due in March and I have ordered one of these ready for the big day!!! HOT DEAL. Thanks!!!

OH and just as an after thought, the tens machine in lloyds cannot be used for childbirth
banned#15
Now back down to £29.99. Amazon prices are going crazy these days, they seem to go up around late morning, then back down again as evening approaches.
