I hired one, they were all the rage when I had DC a long time ago. It was OK in early labour but pretty useless when things got tougher. It was good as a distraction but didn't do much for the pain. I much preferred gas & air.

Brilliant for my second. Induced, so on the drip of whatever it is, and it still held me through to the end (though I was on the point of saying GET THE EPIDURAL!! when dd flew out).

What Mrs Wooster said. My tens machine got me to 9cm before I ripped it off and declared it useless 😂 it was great until then. Gas and air makes me feel sick
