Throughout the stages of pregnancy, your body keeps growing to make space for the baby developing inside you. This growth occurs in the form of your abdomen stretching and expanding and the rest of your body following suit. This stretching process and the excess amount of hormone release and blood flow results in your body becoming sore and ache constantly. Most of this pain is centered in the lower back which makes it hard for you to move around and perform daily activities.

The purpose of belly bands is to provide support to pregnant women and to help regulate their posture, especially during the last 6 months and the postpartum period. While scientific evidence doesn’t exactly show belly bands to provide support, many women report having felt comfortable after they started using belly bands during their pregnancy or postpartum period.
Belly bands help reduce the pain in your back by dividing the pressure on your belly through some other areas of the body and as a result, help stabilize the body.
A growing abdomen can be uncomfortable without proper compression. Imagine traveling along a rocky road without wearing a bra, now you may understand the kind of discomfort we’re referring to here. Belly bands provide the necessary level of compression to support the uterus and minimize discomfort during physical activities.
Although, it should be kept in mind that too much compression can cause heartburn, impair blood circulation and affect your blood pressure in negative ways.
Prenatal exercises are important as they help keep your physical movement consistent and your muscles don’t become sore as a result. But many women give up on exercising or even performing daily physical tasks due to the increased amount of pain in the back and joints. Belly bands help you by providing support to the belly, reducing pain and allowing you to participate in your daily exercise routine.
Comfortable, relaxing and breathable are just a few words to describe this belly band you may consider making a part of your wardrobe! Check it out at Lace Decorated Postpartum Belly Band.
The postpartum period is a trying time for a majority of women. The muscles that were stretched during the pregnancy period will require a lot of time to heal and have become weak and prone to injuries. Hence wearing a belly band gives support to the abdomen and lower back, decreasing the amount of discomfort and weakness felt in the belly.
It can also help with diastasis recti by helping physically bring the abdominal muscles closer. It should, however, be remembered that belly bands can result in making the muscles weaker by turning their functioning ‘off’ and causing long-term problems underneath.
Belly bands constantly prompt you to regulate your posture. Pregnant women have a ‘sway-back’ appearance that happens due to the weight being carried in the front of the abdomen, which causes stretching and weakness in core spinal muscles. The belly bands support the lower back muscles and as a result, encourages one to correct their posture and prevent the over-extension of the lower back.
Although it has delightful benefits, there are a few pointers that need to be remembered in order to prevent too much dependence on the belly bands.
While belly bands can not be a permanent fix, they do provide the comfort you need during some specific phases throughout the pregnancy period. Your wardrobe choices all over matter a lot during this 9-month time-span. Make sure you check out the collection of maternity products available at Little Angel Baby Clothes.
