    As per title? I don't want to buy one and am planning to hire one. Can you tell me where to hire from? I know Boots let you after 38 weeks - do you get one straight away or do they have to mail one??

    Nope, loads of places do TENS hire, just google.

    I've got mine coming from Birthease.com and they'll despatch it in time for 37 weeks.

    Shop around, Boots is one of the most expensive.

    I was going to hire from Lloyds, but it turned out that buying a labour one from them was cheaper, I got it for £23.99.

    Tesco's hire them out too, I think it was £27.50 :flower:

    I bought mine from eBay last time. Worked out cheaper than hiring one. Might be worth looking into if you're planning on having any more? x

    That's interesting, perhaps I will check out Lloyds and can then get some £ back if I sell it on afterwards!! :thumbup:
