The Elle TENS (Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation) and Elle TENS + by Babycare is a versatile and easy-to-use TENS machine, offering maximum pain relief during labour and beyond. All of the settings are pre-set, so there is no guess work or fuss – just optimal pain relief when and where you need it.
TENS is a safe and effective means of combating pain during the process of childbirth. It works by sending comfortable, gentle pulses to the nerves through four electrode pads placed on the skin. It utilizes the Gate Theory of Pain Control by gently stimulating your sensory nerves to suppress or block the pain signal to the brain. When these pain signals are blocked, it becomes more difficult for the brain to register the sensation of pain (or it opts for the more pleasant pulsing sensation).
