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.
the meantime I decided to try Nexcarematernity support. The
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.
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.
to put it on:
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.
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
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
support band to be worn around the abdomen during pregnancy
to reduce pressure on your lower back and tummy
free, whisper-soft elastic provides gentle, yet firm support
the abdomen to achieve relief from sagging weight and leg pain
