What to expect when expecting a baby

Although increases in blood pressure and volume help to nurture your growing baby, they can result in symptoms such as aching legs, swollen ankles and varicose veins. While all of this is normal, it can also be painful and might affect your daily routine when, for example, shoes nolonger fit properly. The good news is, these changes can be easily managed.

Stay healthy

A healthy body means a healthy pregnancy. Activities such as lighthiking, swimming or biking, together with gentle exercises specially created for pregnant women, such as prenatal yoga will help you to carry the extra weight of the baby and can help you regain your shapepost-delivery.* *Always check with your doctor about which form of exercise is most suitable for you during your pregnancy.

A short introduction to Maternity Compression

Compression garments can help to improve your well-being during your pregnancy so that you can get on and enjoy the important things in life.

Medical compression legwear helps to reduce swelling by increasing the pressure in the tissue under the skin.This provides support to your veins and helps prevent them from becoming distended with blood. Plus, it can also help relieve vertigo and nausea.1

 

Compression stockings can also help prevent thrombosis, avoiding the need for additional medication – an important factor that reduces unnecessary burden on your baby.
