Description   TENS (Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation) is a mild electrical current that passes through the skin (transcutaneous) and the body to relieve pain. TENS works by stimulating the sensory nerves so that the sensation of pain is dulled. You will learn how to use TENS to manage the pain you may have during your labor and delivery. In many case, women in labor have found that using TENS can reduce or eliminate the need to take pain medication.

**You need to get a prescription from your physician or Certified Nurse Midwife prior to registering. You must bring the prescription to class.

The charge for the use of the TENS, including the class, will appear on your hospital bill. Most insurance programs, including Medicaid, currently cover the cost.

Classes are held the 2nd and 4th Tuesday of every month. Please call 970.495.8428 to register.
