Labor is called that for a reason. Pushing a babe out of mama's bod is not always the easiest thing to do. Sixty-one percent of lilsugar moms chose a drug-assisted birth when they delivered their bundles of joy. The pain and discomfort associated with childbirth is something many women try to avoid with breathing techniques, baths or drugs. Across the pond, some mums are turning to battery-operated machines that deliver electrical pulses via electrodes placed on the skin.
The TENS machine (Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulator) is said to affect the way pain signals are sent to the brain so when a woman has a contraction and pushes the booster button, the electric pulse nullifies the pain. The retailer claims there are no side effects when using the machine. And, approximately 80 percent of users are saying it was effective for them. Would you consider using electrical pulses to reduce your labor pains?
