Maternity TENS - For Natural Drug-Free Childbirth

In Singapore, there are a growing number of mothers would like to opt for natural pain relief when they give birth. However, the general approach here by most hospitals and obstetricians is "active management", and mostly drug-based. Most mothers hence have limited options such as breathing, movement, massage (by your partner or doula) or heat, to help cope with labour pain.

If a drug-free delivery is desired, Baby Planner SG recommends using a Maternity Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS) Machine for safe and effective natural pain relief instead! The mild electric impulses causes the body to release natural pain relief hormones (endorphins) and interrupts the pain signals to the brain, while the body feels a tingling sensation on the skin.
