What CurrentBody thinks
MamaTENS my time machines allow mums to easily switch between two strengths of stimulation, from a soothing, relaxing sensation between contractions, to a stronger more intense stimulation, by pressing the boost button during each contraction.
TENS encourages the body to release endorphins, which are natural pain-relieving chemicals. It also targets the pain gate, which stops pain signals from reaching the brain.
TENS is drug free, so an ideal choice for mums wishing to have a natural labour. There are no known side effects from TENS use, and long term stimulation is not harmful.

Why We Love It
TENS is one of the safest, most effective forms of modern pain relief available to women during childbirth and is recommended by midwives as part of your birth plan.
MamaTENS my time features extra high levels of pain relief, using innovative comfort strength control technology which prevents short spikes, these may be experienced by other TENS machines if pads are detached during use.
The MamaTENS my time also features a labour log integral to the unit, which enables you to monitor your contraction times and length of time in labour accurately at the press of a button.
Research has shown TENS is very effective when used from the onset of labour because it allows the body time to build endorphins which can enable mum to remain at home for longer.
