Did you know compression stockings can help during pregnancy?


05 Jun 2019

Compression therapy is often recommended to pregnant women in order to prevent symptoms such as heaviness and tension in the legs as well as swollen feet. Wearing compression stockings promotes blood circulation and alleviates discomfort in the legs. The stockings provide relief for the veins and reduce oedema and swelling while also reducing the risk of venous inflammation, thrombosis and varicose veins. Wearing supportive stockings is therefore advisable from the very beginning of the pregnancy.

Expectant mothers are discovering the benefits and comfort of compression stockings worn during pregnancy. They also keep the legs healthy after pregnancy. The stockings help energise legs and give them a feeling of lightness and freedom throughout the day. Light, healthy legs let you fully enjoy spending precious time with your baby as well as frolicking around with them later.

Incidentally, compression stockings also help with morning sickness. One recent study showed that compression stockings can help relieve nausea and vomiting during the early stages of pregnancy. Read the study summary to find out more.
