    I bought the maternity one from Boots (£45) and have tried it out and it seems to be good & easy to use, also a friend of mine hired one from there (the same one as I got) and thought it was great & that cost her £20.

    I'm just looking forward to using mine for real now!

    Nicki. :D

    hired one from tescos, I think it was £27 for 4 weeks, but you can prolonged it for 2 weeks at no extra cost (same at Mothercare, but Tescos is just closer to me!!! :D ).

    It was great, used it till I went to hospital, and I was 6 cm dilated then, so definitely helped me :wink:

    Best of luck with it!

    I hired mine from www.tenshire.co.uk and sorry..... it was crap!!! It didnt do anything except annoy me and the pads fell off all the time.

    Marks out of ten 3/10 :|

    I think if you really beleive it to work tho it would, if you can focus past what feels like a bad case of the pins and needles!

    Worth a try tho?

    :) Thanks for the replies....kelly,I so want my labour to be like yours with no pain relief - perhaps not the 25 hours,a bit less would be nice!
    This is why I have been looking into more natural type things.I have always hated taking tablets,and always avoid them,so I have opted for a natural drug free birth.I only hope everything goes as I would like it to..... :pray:
