Pregnancy can be a truly wonderful time in a woman’s life. Knowing you have created a life and it is growing inside you is a feeling like no other and is something many women dreamt of for years beforehand. During this special time however, women face many physical changes to their bodies which can cause discomfort and often, severe pain.
What Are the Possible Implications?
Everyone prepares you for sleepless nights and losing your social life, but there’s not an awful lot mentioned about the changes your body will go through before baby arrives, and the risks caused by these changes! It is reported that 71% of women experience lower back pain and 65% of women experience pelvic girdle pain during their pregnancies.
Sacroiliac Joint Pain
This is a sharp and sometimes excruciating pain in the lower back next to the tailbone. This pain occurs due to the loosening of the hip joints when the hormone Relaxin is released into the body to prepare for upcoming labour.
Wearing a maternity belt provides support to stabilise the sacroiliac joint as it becomes looser and may help prevent pain during periods of activity.
Round Ligament Pain
This occurs during the second trimester and can range in severity from a dull ache to a sharp pain on the front of the hips below the belly. You will often feel this sharp pain if you try to stifle a sneeze (so avoid doing so if you can!) or you cough without preparing and supporting your lower abdomen.
The Harness Gravidarium Maternity Belt works to evenly distribute the weight of the baby across the back and abdomen which can help reduce pressure and pain on the round ligaments.
Helping You Be You – During Pregnancy and After
If you’re someone who likes to regularly exercise but feel you can’t due to your growing bump, the Harness Gravidarium Maternity Belt could be the solution you need to support you whilst you stay active and healthy during pregnancy. The support from the belt works in the same sort of way a sports bra works, by providing support and gentle compression to make exercising more comfortable. Too much compression can affect circulation and blood pressure though so be sure to check with your healthcare provider if you are unsure how to use the belt for exercise purposes.
You can also wear the Harness Gravidarium Maternity Belt after pregnancy to support you whilst you regain your core strength and look after your new baby at the same time. We would only recommend use after a natural birth though, if you have had a caesarean section you should follow the advice of your healthcare provider.
