Although some people may benefit by placebo effect

I would definately recommend one. Especially if it has a booster button. It worked for me and only took it off when I was on Gas and Air. :thumbsup:

Agreed.

Wasted money on one of these years ago, when they were MUCH more expensive :-(

If you don't want to spend that kind of money, you can hire them usually from the hospital. Its worth asking your midwife.

I'd already bought mine

The majority of patients who took part in studies disagree:

This is what evidence-based medicine is about. Asking the right questions to get informative answers; not just relying on a handful of anecdotes like you appear to be.
Heres an excerpt:
Clinical bottom line: TENS does not alleviate labour pain nor reduce the use of additional analgesics. Women should be offered effective interventions for relief of labour pain.

ah right so you belive everything you read on the internet then, i'd be more inclined to belive people with years of experience in that field not some clinic which has studied less than 900 people

Too right... I don't believe a word people on the internet say, ESPECIALLY on this site as there are an incredible number of people with some sort of hidden agenda, you would think they were losing £1000 commission on every sale, they are so evangelical! I do take more notice when it is borne out by properly qualified medical tests conducted under proper controls though, I give those a lot more credence.

Plus, as a chronic pain sufferer, for many years, I have EXTENSIVELY tried it out myself, not just for one short period of labour, but many weeks, and I came to the conclusion, that any slight (in fact negligible) effect disappears within 2 seconds of stopping it anyway, even so I battled on with it until I had had more than enough :-(

I am always suspicious of "wonder treatments," whether provided by a Rain Forest plant, or a multi-national conglomerate - after all the snake-oil; salesmen have been around as long as there has been illness. It's also not unusual for sham treatments to be in common & accepted use either - other worthless treatments such as used in NHS Hospitals (certainly worthless beyond the placebo effect) - look at Homoeopathy for example - a few centuries ago, people were burned as witches for this sort of thing!
Ultrasound is similar- not the slightest use, might as well wave a tomato over the affected area :-(

Wish I had known about all the serious medical evidence about TENS, BEFORE I bought one though :-(

Thing is, these things are now often available to try for free from Physiotherapists and some GPs, so you don't have to buy one until you have tried it - so why worry, you can find out for yourself how much of a waste of time it is without spending anything at all, and surely the evangelists won't lose out by people waiting a few weeks either! :-D

Of course labour will be over by then! Maybe next time.

great post nihcaj.
It seems souljacker has already made uo his mind on the issue...TENS works and any evidence that doesnt correspond with his point of view is dismissed.
I provided him with the world's most authoritative scientific evidence for TENS use, the very basis of evidence-based medicine, yet he knows best because he has spoken to a few midwives.
Lets hope his other half (who is going to be the one in pain after all!) is more discerning...

You are probably right it is more likely a placebo effect. But believe me if your in labour pains and it helps then you'll use it. It worked for me in my first stages of labour. It maybe because I had something to hold and was in control I don't know.

I'm not on commision just someone giving an opinion. But if it only costs £10 to hire then its worth a try.

Bouncing on the yoga balls help as well. The pool is good as well.

Homeopathy works for a lot of people but science says thats a load of mumbo jumbo as well.

Each to their own and if it helps that person then its worth every penny

Us women will try anything believe me science or no science. I would talk to other mums for advise they are the ones who have gone through.

Good luck and I hope all goes well.

Argh... was after one of these for the wife, but they've gone up to £44.94 now
