Welcome to the World Baby Dustin

We love hearing your birth stories. Jahnea shares her story of Dustin arriving in the world… My water broke at 5:30pm. I had only just sat down after a tiring day wedding dress shopping with my friend. I was two days past my due date and finally had done all the things I needed to. I felt a funny twinge and thought that I needed to pee. So I took myself to the toilet and water rushed out as soon as I reached the bathroom. I did for a moment think I had wet myself.

Natural pain relief in early labour

Recently a friend told me about his wife going into labour and the birth of his child. "We went up to the hospital, bags packed, ready to get the show on the road, but then we were told she hadn't dilated enough and we were sent back home," he told me. "She was so disappointed." It's a story that would be familiar for many first-time mums. Knowing when you've reached established labour is hard to gauge - and as the pain continues to get worse, you're not sure how much you can take before heading to hospital. But if your pregnancy is...

What are the benefits of using a Labour TENS?

A combination of factors contribute to the potential benefits of using a TENS machine during labour. Women find that the use of a TENS unit helps them to feel in control of labour, be less anxious and offers a distraction from contractions.  Many women prefer or choose to use TENS during labour because it is a drug-free alternative and allows them to be present during their child’s birth.  Medical professionals and experts have advocated several advantages of using TENS, including: It is safe for you and your baby You don’t need an anaesthesiologist, doctor or midwife to use it You...
