What is a Pregnancy Back Brace?
Sometimes referred to as a maternity belly band, pregnancy belt, or maternity support belt, the Motif Pregnancy Back Brace is a compression garment designed to provide belly support and relieve back pain. It is different from waistband extenders that help you prolong the amount of time you can wear your non-maternity pants and jeans.
Pregnancy Related Aches and Pains
During pregnancy, your body releases a hormone called relaxin that helps to loosen your ligaments and joints. The increase in relaxin makes it hard for the Sacroiliac SI joint to stabilize the pelvis. This can result in lower back, nerve, and pelvic girdle pain. By lifting and redistributing the weight of the baby, a pregnancy back brace has been shown to reduce these types of pain more effectively than other options. In addition to exercises, gentle massage, and stretching, maternity compression is a safe, all-natural way to relieve pain during pregnancy.
How to Put on a Pregnancy Back Brace
- Make sure the padding is on the inner side and tension straps are positioned in the back.
- Secure the velcro in front of the brace and position so that it cradles the abdomen, typically below the belly button.
- Choose your desired support, compression, and fit by simply adjusting the side tension straps.
- That’s it! You can wear the brace discreetly under or comfortably over your clothing.
If you feel pain in your stomach, excess pressure on your pelvic floor, or it’s restricting your breathing, the support brace is too tight. Gentle compression is the goal.
