The Harness Gravidarum Maternity Support Belt is designed for sufferers of Symphysis Pubis Dysfunction (SPD), also known as Pelvic Girdle Pain (PGP). Common in pregnancy, SPD causes pain and discomfort in the pelvic region due to the joints becoming stiff. This pain can range from mild discomfort to immeasurable agony that can seriously affect your quality of life, during what should be a beautiful time. The pain from SPD is not limited to the girdle, you my also notice pain in the back and hips, and this support belt is here to help eliminate those pains. Being pregnant is hard enough without suffering unnecessary discomfort; especially when there is an easy solution in form of the Harness Gravidarum Maternity Support Belt.
Why Do You Get PGP?
During pregnancy your ligaments loosen due to the release of the hormone Relaxin. Relaxin is released to help your baby pass through your cervix, meaning the joints in your pelvis naturally become more lax.
SPD happens when your body doesn't react to the stretchier, looser ligaments the way it should, and your nerves and muscles are not able to adapt and compensate for the greater flexibility in your joints.
SPD can be triggered by:
- The joints in your pelvis moving unevenly
- Changes to the way your muscles work to support your pelvic girdle joints
- One pelvic joint not working properly and causing knock-on pain in the other joints of your pelvis
The HG Maternity Support Belt is designed to reduce and eliminate the issues caused by SPD, providing support to your baby bump, back, symphysis pubis joint, hips and pelvis. It is comfortable and practical to wear, fitting easily under coats and jackets and it is easy to put on single-handedly.
Made from breathable materials, the belt is comfortable even in the summer months and when experiencing a raised temperature brought on by pregnancy.
Thoughtfully Designed and Created By Experts
Does anyone understand pregnancy better than a woman who has experienced it 4 times? The Harness Gravidarum Maternity Support Belt was created by Ruth Roberts, a former teacher and mother of four and her husband Dafydd - a clothing manufacturer. Ruth was confined to a wheelchair during her fourth pregnancy due to agonising pelvic pain in her hips and back. After trying everything, the idea for the Harness Gravidarum Maternity Support Belt was born and a prototype was created with expert help and advice from doctors, midwives, physio's and consultants. The early prototypes of the belt made the last few weeks of Ruth's fourth pregnancy bearable and she hopes other pregnant women can get the support they need too, using this incredible device.
The Expert Verdict
‘My wife is 28 weeks pregnant and this is so much better than what’s on the market,’ says Tim Allardyce, a physiotherapist at Surrey Physio. ‘It offers support for the spine on so many fronts — including across the shoulders.'.
