Frequently Asked Questions - Prenatal and Postnatal Care
What can alleviate the pain in my lower back?
properly fitted maternity support belt, or lumbosacral support may help
relieve abdominal pressure, pelvic pressure and low back pain.
Are swollen ankles and achy legs during pregnancy something I just have to endure?
No, but this is very common due to the increased pressure on your veins
from weight, greater blood flow to and from the womb and hormone
changes. Light or moderate pressure maternity hose may help with leg
fatigue. For severe varicose veins or persistent swelling, your
physician may prescribe a higher compression stocking.
Is there a difference between maternity and nursing bras?
Maternity bras should be fitted during the fourth or fifth month of
pregnancy, being designed to expand with the breast and rib cage. The
cup size of your nursing bra will be at least 1 – 1 1/2 sizes larger
than your maternity bra and should provide more support.
