TENS stands for Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation, and has successfully been used for many years by pregnant women and professional midwives worldwide to treat labour pain. It works by stimulating your body’s own natural defences against pain. The pads are positioned on your back. These gentle impulses attack pain in two ways:
- By stimulating the release of endorphins, the body’s own pain relieving hormones.
- By stimulating the nerves to block pain signals before they reach the brain.
