What is LaborTENS?

LaborTENS is a conservative and natural pain-relieving tool for labor. LaborTENS works by sending electrical nerve stimulation through the electrodes; it interrupts the pain signals your brain is receiving with your contractions, it reduces your awareness of them and produces endorphins that allow you to cope better.⁠

What are the benefits of LaborTENS?

  • The units are great because they allow you, as a laboring mother, to remain active and upright—you can labor with a TENS in any position you want.

  • The feeling that comes through the electrodes is kind of like a light buzzing or prickling, but the unit has buttons you can use to turn the intensity up or down, depending on your pain level, tolerance, and where you are in your labor.

  • LaborTENS usually does not interfere with electronic fetal monitoring, so it's fine to use when laboring in a hospital setting.

  • It does not require a medical professional to administer.

  • There are no side effects for your baby, and that it can be put on or taken off at any point during your labor.

  • Price is only $70.00 for 6weeks.

Process for Hiring a LaborTENS?

At Physio Pilates Collective we have assisted many women in their Labor journey. You will:

  • Book a LaborTens Hire Appointment (can be booked online or by calling us) - this appointment is 10mins over the phone.

  • During the phone call, our Physiotherapist will ask when you are due and ask some medical questions to determine if you are eligible.

  • You will then be booked in for a free appointment two weeks prior to your due date to collect and be educated on its use.

  • You will have the machine for a total of 5weeks (we understand that your labor may be earlier or later than expected, if you let us know straight away we can have it arranged earlier or extend its use).

  • Once you have the safe arrival of your new baby, we ask it be dropped off as soon as possible so we can lend it to the next women.

You will Receive:

  • LaborTENS machine in own carry bag.

  • Brand New Electrodes (they are not reused between women).

  • Instructions for use.


“I don’t know where I would’ve been without the LaborTENS machine during my labor. It was my first pregnancy so I wanted to make sure I was well prepared. The process was super easy and saved much hassle. Would 100% recommend’. - Abbie B


“I didn’t have the LaborTENS for my first pregnancy, however I did for my second, and I wish I could’ve had it for the first! The process of hiring was super easy and I walked away feeling confident in using it’ - Lauren, A.
