FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:
What exactly IS maternity compression?
Maternity compression garments are medical devices designed by healthcare professionals to provide support, relief, and stabilization for increased comfort during pregnancy and to assist with postpartum healing. It’s no secret that pregnancy takes a toll on your body, but by being made of soft, yet supportive fabric, maternity compression is able to target specific areas to help you stay on your feet during pregnancy and recover after giving birth.
How tight should the Pregnancy Band be?
Using a pregnancy band should not cause you any pain. If you’re feeling pain in your stomach or it’s restricting your breathing, the band is too tight. A well-fitting pregnancy band should feel like a hug: you feel the support around you, but it isn’t hurting.
Why do I need a pregnancy band?
Pregnancy can change your posture, your balance, and put additional, and often painful, pressure on your joints and pelvic floor – all of which increase the workload of your muscles and ligaments.
In addition to this extra work, your body is also releasing a hormone (relaxin) that relaxes and loosens your ligaments, making them stretchy and your joints less stable. More weight and looser connective tissue – sounds like a great combination, right? Not so much, which is why a Motif Pregnancy Support Band is a huge aid to moms. It can stabilize your pelvis, improve your posture, help your baby get in a better position for delivery, and put you one step ahead in your postpartum recovery.
What is a Pregnancy Support Band and what does it do?
The Motif Pregnancy Support Band is comprised of soft, breathable fabric that wraps around the waist and attaches via velcro to provide all natural pain relief and stability. It assists expecting mothers by providing gentle compression to help your body’s muscles and ligaments take on the extra weight, stabilize the joints, and promote better posture.
They are a safer alternative to expensive medications that may cross the placenta and affect the baby. Plus, medications tend to only provide temporary relief while maternity bands provide all-day relief.
When should I start wearing the Pregnancy Support Band?
Wearing the band for a few hours a day starting around 20 weeks can help you keep good posture, reduce pregnancy-related aches and paisn, as well as compress and support your abdomen during exercise.
How does the band help with delivery?
When your abdominal muscles become strained during pregnancy due to bad posture and extra, the baby pulls the abdomen forward and down. This makes it extremely difficult for your baby to “drop down” or “engage” into your pelvis in preparation for delivery because of the baby’s angle in relation to the pelvic bones. By supporting your muscles in the proper place with a Pregnancy Support Band, your baby stays at a good angle to engage your pelvis into term, as your body and baby get ready for delivery.
Can you exercise while wearing the band?
Yes! Using our Pregnancy Support Band can minimize discomfort experienced during exercise and help you maintain a regular workout routine throughout your pregnancy. Many exercises put additional strain on abdominal muscles. Using a band will provide reinforcement to these muscles, allowing you to stay strong and active.
