Anyone used a TENS machine for labor?
 
Between DH and I we own 3 professional/industrial TENs units, LOL. I have never used mine, I let my Chiro use his. I do use DH's on him for his back problems. And the 3rd unit is still in it's box. Has anyone used one for labor? And does anyone know of a chart for placement locations?

I did not use mine in labor. Mine says not to use during pregnancy, I'm not sure why, but my guess is preterm labor trigger, so I'd think during labor it would be ok. I'd ask a pro first though.

Yeah, my Chiro told me not to use it until I was in active labor and at least 4-5cm. My new OB said to bring it if we knew how to use it, he has no idea, LOL.
