Has anyone ever heard of the Mama Tens Machine? I found this ad on ebay:


Mama Tens allows you to experience a mobile, drug free labour with personal control over your pain relief.

Mama Tens is a tens machine specifically for labour pain and is a new product on the market. It is unlike other tens machines which are only for other pains such as arthritis etc.

Mama Tens works by stimulating your bodys own natural defences against pain. The unit transmits gentle electrical impulses through your skin via four adhesive positioned on your back. These impulses attack the pain by stimulating the release of endorphins and also stimulating the nerves to block pain signals before they reach the brain.

This treatment is highly recommended by medical professionals and is widely used in the uk.

The machine usually retails at around AU$250+. It comes with adhesive pads, spare batts, neck chord to hang on and belt buckle attachment.

It is not however recommended for persons with a pacemaker, heart disease or epilepsy.

If you have any concerns, please contact your doctor prior to use.

Has anyone ever used it? Anyone know if it works or if it is rubbish?
