    Seems to be a lot of conflicting advice on the net as to whether you can use them in late pregnancy or not or just in labour. Anybody know if they are safe to use?

    Ive been wondering this too, my friend used hers for last few weeks of pregnancy as she had bad spd & said it helped, but I'm not sure if that was docs advice. Mine says it can be used from 37 weeks but doesnt say if you need to be in labour!

    I got one the other day and it says it can be used from 37 weeks, not just in labour, so I guess that should be ok...

    I've got Elle tens, it seems good & comes with spare batteries & lead which I thought was handy. Tried it out on my arm & OHs arm last night, such a weird feeling, his arm was shaking all over!
