TENS Hire

TENS is a drug-free safe method of pain relief women can use during labour. It can be used in conjunction with other forms of pain relief especially during an active labour. TENS machines are available for hire from the physiotherapy department. You can book an appointment for three weeks before your due date and a physiotherapist will teach you how to use the machine for your labour. The cost of this consultation is $90 (private health rebateable). The TENS machine hire is $45 + $45 to purchase electrodes (to keep).  Some private health funds do cover the hire or purchase of the machine. Please check with your health fund.
