Maternity support and compression garments are ideal for moms seeking a little extra relief while carrying a baby. These garments help mitigate discomfort from added weight, pressure, and stress on your body during pregnancy. We offer several maternity support garments at Pumps for Mom, and we know all the ins and outs to help you search for the right one. Below, we detail how they can benefit moms in need of support

Relieves Aches and Pains

A maternity support band relieves aches and pains in your lower back, hips, pelvic, and sciatic areas. The additional support removes stress from these problem areas, allowing your body to relax and distribute weight more evenly. 

Improves Posture and Carry Position

Maternity support bands improve posture and carry position by reducing joint stress and supporting an upright, strong position. During pregnancy, extra weight in the front of the body can strain back muscles, but a maternity support band helps balance that weight. 

Increases Stability 

A support band will help increase muscle and joint stability for a secure feeling. The pelvic stability a support band provides may also help reduce the risk of falls with its improvements to balance. 

Promotes Circulation

Pregnancy support garments help reduce swelling, inflammation, and edema. They are also thought to help improve circulation, lowering fluid collection and enabling standing and exercising for longer periods of time. Consult with your doctor for more information. 

Relieves Pressure

Maternity support bands improve comfort by providing a cradle that relieves pressure on the abdomen, hips, and pelvis. The distributed balance of a band evens out pressure across your body, so it isn’t all concentrated in one area and causing damage. 

The NINER™ by Body After Baby 

If you’re looking for a maternity support band, we recommend checking out the NINER™ by Body After Baby. The NINER™ features an advanced, user-friendly design that conforms to your exact support needs, whether mild, moderate, or firm. It provides 8” of size adjustment to accommodate growth and keep you comfortable throughout your pregnancy. It may be worn over or under your clothing as an added touch of adaptability.   

The NINER™ offers customized features, including detachable compression straps, removable support panels, and a therapeutic heat and ice pack. The compression straps allow for differing levels of security for ultimate compression and support. They can easily be detached for moms who want a milder level of support using only the band itself. 

The removable front and back support panels provide moderate to firm support with increased stability and structure, while the included therapeutic heat and ice pack soothes and relieves your aches and pains.
