Suffering from an aching back? Is your belly hurting when you try to exercise? It could be time to add a pregnancy belt for back pain to your maternity wardrobe. Pregnancy can put a fair bit of strain on your body, particularly during the second and third trimesters, which in turn puts you at risk of abdominal and lower back pain. Enter the humble pregnancy support belt: a belly support band designed to support the lower back and abdomen during pregnancy, helping take the pressure off and ease any aches and pains. (Read more in our article on why back support during pregnancy is so important.)
Preventing pain alone is a great reason to add a pregnancy belly band to your shopping cart – but it’s far from the only reason! A maternity support belt can also ease the discomfort you may experience during physical activity by providing gentle compression and supporting the uterus. A belly support belt during pregnancy can also help correct your posture and avoid overextension of the lower back, as it carries some of the weight of your growing baby bump.
When it comes to getting use out of your back support band, pregnancy isn’t the only time it will come in handy! A pregnancy belly support band can also continue to offer essential support for your body after your baby arrives. In the weeks following your bub’s birth, decreased core strength is common, and the muscles and ligaments in your body need time to repair themselves and return to their former strength. Continuing to wear your pregnancy support belt can help provide support and comfort in those early days after you’ve given birth.
Recommended by physiotherapists, our adjustable maternity support belt can provide instant relief of pain and pressure by lifting your belly, while our microfibre back support tube offers support and comfort that feels like a second skin as it hugs your baby bump.
