I have never heard of this, but my midwife told me about it. She said it's four shots, just water nothing else, in your back. She said it's uncomfortable for about a minute but then gives about an hour of relief, and says it works for pretty much anyone. Anyone done that before?

She said the other pain relief method they have is a TENS machine and it doesnt work for everyone but I can try it if I want. I'm going for a water birth so will see.

I have never heard of the water shots. I'm not a needle person, and injecting things into my body just freaks me out in general so I'd have to pass

We tried the TENS machine at my first homebirth and I wasn't into it. It's hit or miss on who loves it and who doesn't. I felt like I was being statically shocked every few second on my back and you can't use it in the water unless you're into that whole electrocution things

ive heard of the water shots before, but i have no experience with them and i dont know anyone who has used them. I used a TENS in my last labor - it was my 3rd natural birth, first time using the TENS unit and my first water birth. my doula just unhooked it when i was ready to get in the tub. once i was in the tub (I was in less than an hour before he was born) all my pain was gone

I've heard of water shots as well but it's not something I'm interested in. Part of the reason I go med free is to avoid needles.

I've tried TENS not pregnant and it wasn't for me. Maybe try it out before you go into labor? Better to know beforehand if it skeeves you out, right?
