Introducing the most advanced natural pain management device for labour available in Australia

The Elle TENS (Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation) is the ultimate birth tool as it maximises your body's natural pain-fighting abilities.

Elle TENS devices are highly effective, portable, and easy to use.

All settings are pre-set to eliminate fuss, with the attached neck cord allowing you to move around.

Our exclusive Opti-Max technology is what makes Elle TENS products different to any other maternity TENS in the market. The BOOST button gives you an extra reserve of power for when you really need it, especially in the final stages of labour when you need it most.

Safe Pain Relief in Your Control with TENS

TENS (Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation) is a drug-free pain relief often used by women in labour.

TENS is becoming widely popular among birthing women, with 1 in 5 women using a TENS device during their labour.

Many women choose a TENS machine for their labour as it gives another options of pain relief particularly when labouring it home, and for the car ride when a heat pack just doesn’t cut it!

A maternity TENS consists of a battery powered, hand held controller connected by fine leads to four flat pads. The pads are covered with a firm gel to help them stick to your back.

The TENS machine sends small, safe pulses of electrical current via the leads to the pads on the skin. The pulses pass through your skin into your muscles and tissues via nerve fibres. This gives you a gentle tingling or buzzing sensation, which may be stronger or weaker depending on the setting level.

The controller part of the TENS machine is easy to hold in your hand while you're in labour, but if you don't want to hold it, you can use the soft neck strap or clip provided.

The device has buttons to control the frequency and strength of the pulses. There is also a boost button for you to press with your thumb when you want maximum output from the machine. This function is best used during a contraction.

The ELLE TENS unit is 100% user-operated, meaning the person using it is the one who is in full control.

What are the Advantages of using a TENS Machine?

✔ TENS is non invasive and therefore allows freedom of movement including walking around

✔ It won’t directly interfere with your labour

✔ The Elle TENS is a small, portable, battery operated machine so it is a great option for at home use as well as the car ride to the hospital

✔ You can use it for as long as you want to and take it off whenever you need. Simply reapply your electrode pads if you want to use it again

✔ The impulse frequency and strength can be self adjusted, to suit your needs, allowing you a sense of control

✔ If you don’t like the feeling, or you’re not getting the desired effect, you haven’t committed to anything. The electrodes can be removed and you are able to try other pain relief options

✔ There are no adverse outcome from the use of a TENS machine - it is safe for both mum and baby

✔ You don’t need an anaesthetist, doctor or midwife to help you use it

✔ TENS can be used on its own or in conjunction with some other form of pain relief

How does a TENS machine work?

1. By overloading your nervous systemThe TENS machine delivers an electrical pulse to your body via four electrodes on your back; this pulse overloads your nervous system. Our body can only focus on so much information at a time. It prioritises nerve activity (like the TENS pulse) over pain signals, meaning that fewer pain signals make it to your brain and spinal cord, so you feel less pain. This is a part of 'The Gate Control Theory of Pain'.

2. Boosting endorphinsThe TENS machine can also release natural endorphins in your body, which can help to relax you and relieve your pain. Endorphins are our body's natural pain relievers, which act on opiate receptors to alleviate pain and promote feelings of pleasure.

3. Distraction and giving controlYour mindset is often one of your most undervalued tools, and the TENS machine can help. The electrical stimulation from the TENS machine is something you can focus on to shift your focus away from the pain. Most people say the TENS machine gave them a sense of control in a moment when they felt out of control; the power of that is significant in labour.

When shouldn’t I use a TENS machine?

Never use a TENS machine under the following circumstances:

  • Without talking to a midwife or doctor first
  • Before you are 36 weeks pregnant
  • When you’re in a shower, bath, or birth pool
  • If you have broken skin or a healing scar where you want to place the pads
  • If you have a cardiac pacemaker or a heart rhythm problem
  • If you have pain that you don’t think is labour pain. See your doctor or midwife if this is the case.
  • On another part of your body other than your lower back as pictures in the instruction manual.

What are the disadvantages of using a TENS machine?

  • You probably won’t be able to put the pads into place without help
  • You may find it only gives relief in the early stages of labour
  • You may not find it helpful at all - TENS machines aren’t for everyone and some dislike the feeling of it on their skin
  • TENS can’t be used in water, though you can still use it prior to getting in a bath or pool
  • If you want your birth partner to massage your back, they will have to work around the pads

When to use a TENS machine?

Using TENS during pregnancy

TENS machines have been proven to be effective at reducing lower back and pelvic girdle pains experienced during pregnancy. If you have medical approval by your midwife or doctor (or allied health professional) you can use your TENS machine for these pains prior to 37 weeks.

Using TENS prior to labour

We advice that you test your TENS machine prior to 37 weeks gestation to ensure the machine is functioning correctly, and that you familiarise yourself with how to use the device. YOu can practice using this on yourself, your birth partner or a friend. It is fine to use the electrodes that are supplied in your pack and then resus these for labour, as they can be reused up to 20-30 times.

Using TENS in labour

You can use TENS from the very beginning of your labour, when you’re getting regular contractions or backache. It is believed that the longer the device in insitu, the more effective it will be at reducing pain and reading endorphins. TENS is most likely to be effective in early labour though you may still need other forms of pain relief as your labour progresses. TENS therapy can be stopped at any time during labour and does not have any residual effects eg. if you wanted to take a shower or have a back massage, you can then place your electrodes back on. 

Using TENS in the postpartum period

Some mums experience horrible after birth pains, so reuse your birth electrodes and place your pads over your uterus. You may also like to use it for any lingering back pain post birth.

  • It definitely did help! I was able to labour and birth using just the tens and a birth comb 😊🥰

    - Anna

  • Using a TENS machine enabled me to have a beautiful and empowering pain medication free birth. Paired with breathing techniques, the TENS machine and the sense of control it gave me was effective pain relief for the majority of my 8hr labour.

    - Zoe

  • The TENS machine helped me especially in the early stages of labour. It was easy to use (we unfortunately didn’t get time for a test run and my partner had to get it set up at 2.30am when I was in the thick of it!) and made the trip to the hospital bearable. I continued using it until I was in active labour, and would recommend people give it a go.

    - Melanie

  • The Tens machine was a huge part of my labour this time (second child); I used it right the way through and found it really helpful with the pain, but also gave me something to do/ focus on (using the burst/charge setting when I felt a contraction starting). I found your service great; quick and helpful replies. Would definitely recommend! Thank you!

    - Nicola

  • I wasn't expecting the tens machine to be so integral to my pain relief in my labour, but it got me to 5cm before I had my epidural. I don't think the effectiveness of the machine, combined with meditation, is well known. Thanks again for providing this service. It was really helpful!

    - Anna

  • I used the tens machine with massage and breathing exercises for pain relief and it worked amazingly,I didn't need any other pain relief. it really took my mind of the pain during contractions

    - Celeste

  • I was induced and had bub on Monday (42 weeks) without any medical pain relief, just the TENS machine and heat pack. It was amazing how effective it was!
