Frequently Asked Questions - Prenatal and Postnatal Care
What can alleviate the pain in my lower back? A 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.
