What is FreeMOM TENS?

How does it Work?

FreeMOM sends small, safe, electrical signals into the body via electrodes which are placed on the skin. The stimulus aids the relief of pain in 3 ways:
1. By blocking the pain messages from reaching the brain via the nerves.
2. By stimulating the release of the body’s naturally occurring pain-relieving endorphins.
3. By providing a distraction while the pain is occurring.

Is FreeMOM safe?

There are no side-effects to mother or baby with the use of FreeMOM TENS. The effects of the FreeMOM are temporary.

The feeling experienced is a mild to strong yet comfortable “tingling” sensation with use of FreeMOM. You are always in control of the FreeMOM TENS.

Once set, the expectant mother simply presses the ‘Booster Button’ during each contraction and holds it down until the contraction ceases.
