A maternity support belt (also referred to as a pregnancy support belt) is widely used during pregnancy, providing support to the lower back, the bump and pelvic regions. It offers pain and fatigue relief for those suffering from lower back pain through the application of compression.
If you need any advice before you make a purchase then feel free to speak with a member of our team on webchat or by picking up the phone.
Lower back pain is a common complaint during pregnancy and especially within the final trimester where the additional weight and relaxation of ligaments in the lower back and pelvis can begin to cause more discomfort.
Alongside exercises to help relieve this pain there are numerous lifestyle changes which are recommended. These include what shoes to wear, improving posture and ensuring enough rest is taken. In addition to this a maternity support belt can help manage the pain by providing additional support to the lower back and pelvis which in turn can enhance mobility.
In the event of experiencing this type of back pain you should speak with your midwife who will be able to advise of the best exercises to undertake and the type of maternity support belt you may require. Alternatively they may refer you to a physiotherapist.
