TENS is a non-invasive, drug free pain coping option for birth.


flower"I've been recommending FreeMom TENS to our clients for years. I've seen it work well for them - it provided a focal point during their contractions and the tingling sensation on their back was soothing. Which is why I used the FreeMom TENS for both of my births. For the birth of my youngest daughter, I did not want to take my TENS off to hop in the birth pool, because I didn't realize how close I was to fully dilated. The TENS took me all the way through active labour and transition! I will continue to recommend FreeMom TENS as an option for drug-free pain relief."

WHAT DOES THE EVIDENCE SAY ABOUT THE USE OF TENS IN LABOR?

In 2017, researchers from Iran reported the results of their randomized controlled trial where they assigned 90 first-time mothers to low intensity TENS, placebo TENS (where the device was turned off), or to routine care. They started the treatment on the back at about four centimeters dilation, and the treatment continued until the time of birth.

After about one hour, the average pain scores were not different between the groups; however, they saw significant differences in pain levels at two, three, and four hours after the treatment began. For example, in the second stage of labor, during the pushing phase, only 20% of the people in the TENS group reported their pain as severe compared to about 83% – 87% of people in the other two groups. When they asked people about four hours after the birth how they recalled the severity of their pain, only 7% of people in the TENS group recalled severe pain compared with 43% of people in the placebo group, and 60% of people in the standard care group.
