Resources for Moms to be and New Moms
We recognize that all of our moms-to-be have different shapes, sizes, and needs! Ideally, if you have concerns about pelvic ring and SI pain, swelling, Diastasis (DRA) or any other issues, you will reach out and talk to us! Even over telehealth, we are able to assess and help you determine the best tools and supports. There are many options, and we hate to see you get something that does not meet your needs! But if you want to check out a few of our favorites, here you are (PLEASE NOTE THAT THESE ARE BRANDS WE LIKE AND HAVE HEARD GOOD THINGS ABOUT….THIS IS NOT A BRAND ENDORSEMENT, AND WE DO NOT RECEIVE MONEY FROM THESE COMPANIES OR IF YOU PURCHASE!)
Leg Swelling: Not all women have varicose veins during pregnancy, but many experience swelling! One tip is to take a break midday and ELEVATE, but stockings really do make a difference! Some ideas:
- Suggestions for Compression Stockings (not an endorsement of the site, but good information)
- REI Runner’s Compression Socks
- CEP Compression Socks
Leggings and support: There are many choices, but we have heard reviews about Spanx Brand maternity leggings. Not “tight” like regular Spanx, but good support!
Bras: Well fitting and supportive bras are very important to help with your spine, neck, and shoulders (along with the work that you do with us, of course!). Even women who have not felt the need for much support will during pregnancy!
- Title Nine Sports carries many sizes and a good selection of sports bras.
- If you live in Pittsburgh and Western PA, make an appointment with Judy at Levana Bratique. She knows her bras, and also carries nursing bras.
Vulvar Swelling: What?!?! Yes, we see vulvar varicosities in some moms-to-be. PLEASE CONTACT US for help…there are many ways to address this, and it depends on your pregnancy, how far along you are, and more. Please know that there is help for this very uncomfortable condition! One helpful option can be support from the bottom up as provided by the Bellies Inc support below, but much depends on the mom. Reach out!
If you have concerns about DRA/diastasis and how to recover and heal, please reach out to us to learn about evaluation and resources/classes/individualaized training. The Bellies Inc support belwo helps to provide support and tension in early post-baby days, and then it is about retraining and re-coordination of the muscles and tissues! Online programs can be a wonderful resource but knowing what is going on with YOUR body is empowering. We are here to provide true recovery support!
Bellies INC Support: Many of our moms to be and new moms benefit from support during pregnancy and in the earlier days post-partum. No one support works for every woman, but we find that the “Ab Wrap” works well for many women of different shapes and sizes. Find more information here.
So much Information! How do I know it’s right for me?? Contact us for a FREE Discovery Visit or Consultation and tell us more about you. We can answer questions about how we can help! In person or by phone!
