I'm looking at the Elle Tens - did anyone use this and can recommend it or can you recommend a different one? Thanks ever so much - finding it a bit of a minefield xx

I had the same dilemma when choosing mine. I went for the MamaTens as it looked simpler than the ElleTens, much easier to get my head around when in pain. The Mama tens has fewer buttons and they are further apart so I could find them quickly when I was in pain. The boost button on the side is also larger and was easily placed for me to grab, find and press with my eyes closed.
That was just what worked for me though and the Mama Tens did a very good job for me for 17 hours of contractions. With my first birth I hired one from Boots and it did the same job, didnt notice a difference, so it just boils down to which functions etc are important to you.
