Safe pain relief

ELLE birth TENS (Transcutaneous Electrical Neuro Stimulation) is a natural, safe and effective way to relief the experience of labor. The TENS stimulates the production of endorphins, the body’s own pain-relieving hormone. Through the stickers on your lower back, which are connected to the device you operate yourself, you feel soft tingles. These tingling sensations distract the pain stimulus transmission to your brain. This will decrease the perception of the pain of the contractions and you might be able to relax more easily.

Besides being used during childbirth, the TENS is also used by doctors for other pain conditions. The TENS has been scientifically proven to relieve your pain.


  • Natural pain relief
  • Stimulates natural body functions
  • No side effects

The use of TENS is not recommended with:

  • during the first trimester of pregnancy (0 – 12 weeks)
  • epilepsy
