Using TENS for an induction

I am often asked if TENS can be used when being induced, and whether it interferes with monitoring.

TENS is a great pain relief option to use during an induction.  You can attach it before the induction starts, and start building your endorphins, so that when labour starts your body is already filled with feel-good hormones.

TENS does not interfere with monitoring equipment.  It does mean you will have more wires attached to your body, but the monitor belt can work around the TENS.

Just talk to your midwife about your wishes, and your midwife will be able to help you.
