Perfect Mama Tens Maternity Device

TENS Therapy offers a drug-free alternative to pain relief and has an excellent reputation as an effective form of modern pain control. The Perfect MamaTENS Maternity TENS Device is specifically designed to help counter labour pain. It has pre-set programs which have a specific frequency and pulse width to help relieve pain through each stage of labour. It also features a boost button which allows mums-to-be to rapidly increase the intensity to provide additional pain relief during contractions and uses large pads to ensure that all the relevant nerves are covered to give the most effective pain relief. The device can be used at home when the labour starts and taken into the hospital, allowing the mother to be mobile and in control of her own pain relief from the first contraction through to delivery.
