Boots stores have them you can hire. Just take proof of address.

just ordered one from here:


should get it tomorrow on special delivery. it was £22.95 i think. HOWEVER, paid online and havent received a confirmation email. Sent them an email and got my mail returned!! So.... you may want to try somewhere else. Try a search on the web.

I got one from Naturesgate and they even sent it to Switzerland !

Boots used to do them but when I had ds, last July, they'd stopped – something to do with quality control (can't remember what the problem was). Not sure if they've resumed again. Anyway, plenty of other sources here.
Good luck!

I got mine from, and it was pretty good. I also ordered the 'Woman's Guide to Drug Free Pain Relief' book, which I didn't feel was worth the money (£5.99 for a 25 page booklet)

Mothercare and Boots hire them out. Babycaretens are the cheapest. I just ordered one on Saturday. Also the hospitals have some which they hire free but its a case of first come first served.

Just thought I'd add to this thread and mention I hired mine online from Maternity Tens Hire and was very pleased with the service and the condition of the unit. Found it invaluable for the birth, and have no hesitation recommending them to anyone.

Me too Georgina. Same place, same good service and great help in my labour.
