About the Doppler
As your due date draws near you are probably starting to think about your pain relief options. The options for pain relief during childbirth are numerous and putting together your ideal birth plan can be a daunting task. Using a TENS machine is just one such option.
Belly Beat TENS Hire offers its customers what it believes is a leading product in the TENS market at an affordable price. It is the result of considerable research and represents the latest in obstetric TENS technology. The Mama TENS unit is superior to other common TENS units available as it has been designed specifically for obstetric use and labour pain. Mama TENS is widely used in the UK with great success and is now becoming very popular in Australia.
How does TENS work?
In simple terms, TENS works by scrambling and blocking pain signals on their path to your brain and also by increasing endorphins.
Using TENS allows your body to naturally defend itself against pain. It involves applying minute electrical impulses (via electrodes attached to specific parts of your body – in the case of labour pain, on the back) to the nerve endings just under the skin. These electrical impulses cause a release of endorphins and stimulate the nerve pathways to the uterus and cervix and block other sensory inputs such as pain from reaching the spinal cord and brain.
The pain suffered during birth might start with the first contraction or when the cervix starts to dilate. The pain then increases progressively until the cervix is completely dilated. During this period you will experience pain of different types and intensities but due to the innovative technology which has been incorporated into the MAMA TENS unit, you will be able to help counter this. The MAMA TENS has three levels of intensity to select from depending, designed to be increased as the stages of labour progress. However there is also a boost button which sends out a stronger, more intense surge of impulses for contractions.
