I have never heard of this until today... but there must be something wrong with it? All I have is this article: http://www.midwifeinfo.com/topic-TENS.php

Thoughts please? :

They're really really common in the UK. Haven't used one yet, but I'm thinking about it!

My TENS machine was the only thing that provided relief for me during my super fast induced labour. Seriously, I don't know how I would have coped without it. I tried the birthing ball, the tub etc. and nothing helped me as much as that TENS. I rented mine b/c the hospital only had one machine. Also, I knew wanted to use the TENS in early labour at home. As it happened, I was induced and didn't have the early labour at home but BOY was I happy that I had arranged to rent the unit.
