Basically cant remember where on my back I positioned the pads last time.Think I may be needing it today.
yes i used one, think i used it a bit too late though as didnt really feel the effect. i placed them lower back about 3 inches apart and then the other 2 pads literally directly on top.good luck!
Thankyou. I only used it last year but cant remember and lost instructions Think I put it on when about 4cm dilated. Was great. But I have heard its best early to get the benefit of the build up and intensity of contractions I think.
The tens machine I have (elle tens) says to draw an imaginary line from your navel around to your back and position the first two pads 5cm above and the other two 5 cm below that line.
i was just using mine last night. first 2 pads go about 3 inchs under your shoulder blades 2 inchs apart from each other and the other 2 go about an inch up from the dimples in your lower back 4 inchs apart.
Thanks so much
