New Plymouth Parents Centre provides the following services:

TENS Machine Hire

We have three TENS (Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulator) machines for hire.

The units are small and hand-held, with attachments that you place on your back.  You can use TENS throughout the labour and birth, at home or in hospital, and in conjunction with other pain-management strategies, all with no side effects for you or your baby. 

TENS machines work by:

  • Helping your body to produce and release natural pain-killing hormones.
  • Distracting the brain from labour sensations, blocking pain messages.
  • Empowering you to cope with labour more effectively.
Only $40.00 for hire (plus a $20.00 refundable bond), which includes an information booklet; tape and gel for use with the machine. To enquire or make a booking, contact Andrea Tait via email
