    It gave me something to concentrate on and helped with my breathing, asides from that I don't think it did much - certainly didn't take away the pain.

    Did they check that it was on? Mine wasn't turned in and they assured me that it was until they checked, flippes the switch on and then it was definitely working.

    I didn't have any trouble with it, the rattle gave me something to focus on during contractions and I don't think it got above 25-30% which I think is fairly low.

    It made me lose the plot. I was crying uncontrollably because I thought I'd already had my baby and the nurses had taken him away. Never again!

    With dd1 it made me vomit
    With dd3 I was so off my face it wasn't funny and once I got to 8cm it kind of stopped working

    I don't have any experience with it during labour but I broke my hand in 3 different places quite badly a few years ago and was given it while they re-broke 2 of the bones as they had set in a bad position, it made me extremely dizzy and I felt completely out of it didn't do a lot for the pain but gave me something to focus on until I started projectile vomiting I chose not to use it during labour because of this

    I used it for my first birth, just on half strength, found it was enough ti make me relax, but I think it gave me something to chew on more than anything

    It sent me loopy. It was like my brain got stuck at the top of a contraction and wouldn't snap out of it (The pain).

    I used it for ds2. I didn't like it. It progressed so no time for an epidural and he was posterior so extremely painful in the back. I asked for gas as I hadn't tried it before and really it made me feel so completely out of it! Every breath it was like my brain was zinging and I felt so drugged. I hated it at the time but I wouldn't let them take it away from me either because it gave me something else to focus on I suppose. Then after I got stitched up I vomited everywhere! I wouldn't have it again.

    Ha! I was convinced mine was turned off and was sucking so hard on it. I told DH to try it - he went into la la land for a while, was definitely on!

    With DD the pain from contractions was making me climb the walls and vomit, gas calmed me right down.
    DS was induced early and i was given gas when they were breaking my waters, didn't feel a thing after 3 unsuccessful painful attempts. I love it!
