Pregnancy Compression Benefits

As your pregnancy progresses you may begin to have minor legs problems such as tiredness, swelling, and discomfort. During pregnancy your growing belly as well as the extra pressure of your baby causes your legs to feel tired, achy, and swell. Most of these problems are caused by poor circulation.

Gradient Compressing Products help to promote improved circulation. Compression stockings are designed to deliver a controlled amount of pressure which is greatest at the ankle of the garment and gradually decreases towards the top of the stocking. This gradient pressure promotes better circulation to help control swelling and relieve tired achy legs.

You may need compression during pregnancy if you experience:

  • Foot and ankle swelling
  • Tired, achy legs
  • Leg discomfort

 

If you feel you may need compression during your pregnancy, consult you health care provider to determine the best compression level and compression product for you.
