During pregnancy, a woman’s body dramatically changes. Several health issues may arise due to these changes. Many of them deal with the woman’s legs. Believe it or not, these medical issues may be either reduced in intensity or avoided altogether by wearing various forms of maternity hosiery, like maternity support pantyhose and maternity body shapers.
Some of the most serious of the medical issues that may occur during pregnancy are edema, varicose veins, and leg cramps. There are also those women who experience simple leg pain that makes daily chores and activities more difficult. In instances of any of these medical conditions, maternity hosiery can benefit those women wearing them.
The reason women experience many of these leg conditions during the 40 weeks of pregnancy is poor circulation. Even perfectly healthy veins are already working hard to get blood back to the heart against the natural pull of gravity. When women are expecting, though, veins work much less effectively and efficiently due to the added weight of the baby and the expanding uterus. The use of various forms of maternity hosiery, like maternity support stockings and body shapers, may help the body achieve better leg circulation. With regular use, maternity support pantyhose will often diminish any symptoms caused by the numerous leg issues, sometimes alleviating the problems altogether.
During such an important period of woman life we offer some maternity models
which can help to prevent certain leg conditions. They can be used every day
to ease your condition and let you live more comfortably or to give your legs a
special look for a very special occasion. The model ‘Sophie’ by Elli Carezza is
very sheer with medium graduated compression and at the same time is very
relaxing. ‘Dolce Attesa’ 20 Den is suitable for winter and summer season. These
pantyhose are great if you don’t want any support or tightness, if you’d like to
feel free like you don’t have anything on your legs and on you belly.The model
is extremely light and provides relaxed feeling from top to bottom.
Not all maternity hosiery is exactly the same. Maternity support pantyhose come in a wide range of compression strengths, so a doctor’s guidance is required when choosing just which pair will be most effective. Something women may not be aware of is the fact that maternity hosiery has been recognized by the medical community as a form of treatment for these leg issues. If a doctor prescribes maternity support pantyhose, or “compression stockings”, during pregnancy, there are many insurance companies that will cover the cost. This is good news for those women who experience leg conditions during their pregnancies, as maternity support stockings are much more expensive than traditional nylons.
Women do not have to suffer with the common leg ailments of pregnancy any more! Coupled with good nutrition, moderate exercise, and regularly scheduled prenatal care, the use of maternity hosiery is a tried and true method for the prevention and treatment of leg issues, like varicose veins, edema and leg cramps.
