Maternity TENS rental service

Maternity Tens Hire at the Town Centre Pharmacy

A maternity TENS machine gives you drug-free pain relief during labour.

What is TENS and how does it work?

TENS stands for Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation and is a technology that provides tiny electrical impulses through the skin to the nerves via four electrode pads.

The innovative digital technology within the TENS machine blocks the pain signals from the womb and cervix and stimulates the release of the body’s natural painkillers – endorphins.

Is it safe? 

TENS has been used for years as an effective method of pain relief with no evidence that it can harm either mother or child in any way.

Unlike some pain medication, the Town Centre Pharmacy Maternity TENS rental unit doesn’t cause drowsiness. It can be used in conjunction with other methods of pain relief.
