Benefits Originally introduced in the 1970s, TENS Units have gained popularity since the 1990s, particularly in the context of labor. The advantages of using a TENS unit during childbirth are numerous. Firstly, it provides effective pain relief, which proves especially helpful for back labor. Additionally, it offers a non-invasive and drug-free approach, making it a safe alternative. TENS can be used throughout the entire labor process, potentially reducing the reliance on other pain relief options. It is easy to use, devoid of known side effects, and offers a cost-effective solution for expectant mothers. By minimizing the need for other forms of pain management and enabling women to stay mobile and active during labor, TENS units significantly contribute to a more comfortable and positive birthing experience for both mother and baby.

Contraindications However, it is crucial to be aware of certain contraindications when using a TENS unit. Firstly, TENS should not be used before the 37th week of pregnancy. Additionally, individuals with pacemakers should refrain from using TENS units due to potential interference. If a person is prone to seizures, using a TENS unit is not recommended. Similarly, if there are existing skin wounds or rashes or if there is metal present in the body, the use of TENS units should be avoided. Furthermore, it is important to note that TENS units should not come into contact with water, rendering them unsuitable for use during showers or baths. However, users can discontinue the use of the TENS unit at any time to enjoy water-based activities such as taking a bath or showering.
