We hired a TENS Machine from Carol for my second birth as I had heard good things about them from friends.
Carol was very informative upon collecting the unit, and gave clear instructions of use. We got extra sticky pads; batteries and an information booklet upon use. It was ideal because we could collect it 2 weeks before due date; and I was able to test it out and make sure I was confident in using it before labour.
I used it from the very start of labour and found it really good; I used no other pain relief. I used it in the car to travel to the hospital; and found it a really good distraction to focus on during contractions!
Although I did not use it for the final stages of labour (as I used a birthing pool!) But I would still recommend it even just for the initial stages of labour.
