Nexcare Maternity Support review

If you read my blog on a regular basis you know that I have experienced some pains in my bum area, when I mentioned this for the first time to one of the midwives she said that it could be due to baby's position, in one of my latest updates on the blog some of you lovely readers suggested it could be sciatica, which wasn't confirmed, I was told it's SPD and luckily was referred to see a physiotherapist.
In the meantime I decided to try Nexcarematernity supportThe Nexcare™ Maternity Support is a latex-free, elasticated support belt that can help to ease some of the physical discomfort associated with pregnancy. It provides gentle but firm support underneath your bump to lift the extra weight, relieve pelvic girdle pain and reduce pressure on the lower back.

Maternity support itself consists of 3 parts (it looks complicated but very easy to use if you read instructions beforehand): Abdominal Support Pad (ASP), Back belt and Tummy strap.

How to put it on:
Firstly, you would need to place ASP (consists of a a wide "wavy" part and elastic thin strap) under your bump (if you feel that it is uncomfortable you can lift the pad slightly) and wrap the strap around your body by attaching it to the Velcro part of the pad.
Secondly, you would need to take the back belt (it is the widest part of the support) and stretch it forward from your back to the front and attach it to ASP (please note it suppose to feel comfortable and not too tight).
And lastly, for an extra support you can use the thinnest part of the support- tummy strap, which goes over the top of your bump and attaches to the Velcro "squares" on either sides of the back belt.

Features and Benefits:
  • A support band to be worn around the abdomen during pregnancy
  • Helps to reduce pressure on your lower back and tummy
  • Latex free, whisper-soft elastic provides gentle, yet firm support
  • Lifts the abdomen to achieve relief from sagging weight and leg pain
  • Expands to accommodate your baby's growth
  • Suits pre-pregnancy dress size 18-28

You can also buy Nexcare postpartnum support, ColdHot back and abdomen belt, ColdHot maternity compress for breastfeeding mothers and much more.
You can purchase Nexcare Maternity Support from: Amazon, Mothercare and 3M Direct websites.

  1. Great review, i will definitely be looking at one of these next time round x

  2. I used one of these too, and found that it really helped with my SPD. Thanks for linking up with #TriedTested

  3. Has it helped with your pain? I had SPD with the last 2 of my 3 pregnancies and I never want to feel that pain again!

  4. It is helping when I wear it while walking, standing mainly, I tend to take it off when sitting down though

  5. This looks great - SPD is horrendous so anything that helps. Hope it works for you!

  6. I am so lucky that I never experienced SPD. I hope you are getting some relief

  7. I still suffer with SPD 4 years on and i know how painful this condition is .. its great you can get some relief with it. ... do they do a non pregnancy one? x

  8. I could have really used this with my last two pregnancies!

  9. I don't recall seeing anything like this when I was pregnant

  10. Two of my friends used this in the later stages of their second pregnancy and said it worked a treat. I would consider it if I was expecting another. x

  11. I've never heard or seen one of these before....It looks very helpful x

  12. I had terrible spd with my last 3 pregnancies and ended up on crutches each time. I had a support belt as well but didn't get any relief from it. The belt you have seems so much better! I hope it helps x

  13. I was so huge during my twins pregnancy I needed a support, until I became to big for it lol! But this one looks like a really good one x

  14. I never had this in my pregnancy but know friends that did so it's wonderful you've written about it! x

  15. I got spd when I was pregnant and have still got it now and Baby is 1. Great review x

  16. Gosh i so need this now! Im dying with spd x roll on labour :)

  17. I had to use one of these in my 1st pregnancy and it really helped. I felt it took a lot of my pains away as it supported me a lot more than having nothing there.

  18. Did it help?
    My friend might be in need of this if it is working

    1. It is helping, I wear it when out and about but tend to take it off when sitting, but when walking didnt feel any pains so far
