Using Tens pre-labour on midwife advice?

I thought it sounded a bit odd. I don't understand it.

Still, she is really experienced and it is my first baby so I feel like I must be missing something!

Can't imagine the logic behind that. Use it if you have pain. Otherwise I'd leave it alone.

Hi, my midwife has suggested I start using my Tens machine daily from 37 weeks to help build up endorphins.

Has anyone else done this? If so, what did you think?

Also, is anyone aware of any risks of doing this? The midwife is happy but good to have all info before trying it out.

Thank you for your thoughts.
