Using Boots Maternity TENS

Specially designed for women in labour

The electrode pads and the Boots Maternity TENS control unit are small and unobtrusive, allowing you to move around, as you need to.

The maternity TENS stimulation programmes have been pre-set, so that you don’t have to fiddle around with the controls. You can take Boots Maternity TENS into hospital with you, or use it at home.

Boots Maternity TENS will help you to relax and prepare for the birth of your baby, taking you right through labour, from the first contractions to delivery.

The Boots Maternity TENS unit is also useful after the birth, easing after-pains as your uterus contracts, and helping you to manage the discomfort of an episiotomy or tear.

When labour begins, your midwife or birth partner can attach the electrodes to your back, as shown in the picture. Plug the electrodes into your control unit and you are ready to begin using the Boots Maternity TENS. Positive effects can be felt immediately.

It has a user variable ‘low-level’ output for the relief of mild pain and a ‘high-Ievel’ output (known as Boost mode), for enhanced pain suppression during labour contractions.

TENS in childbirth

Advantages of TENS

The advantages of using TENS during childbirth include:

  • No effect on baby
  • Safe and easy to use
  • Puts you in control
  • Significant reduction of pain
  • Non-invasive

How TENS works in childbirth

Large reusable pads go each side of your spine in two positions to intercept the nerves carrying pain from all over the abdomen.

Boots Maternity TENS has different programs that you select with one button press to cope with the changing pattern of pain as labour progresses.

Press the built-in boost button to increase the effect during contractions.
