What is a belly band used for?
The second and third trimesters can bring their fair share of aches and discomfort. This is to be expected – after all, your body is adjusting to carrying your growing baby! If you enjoy exercising or are on your feet a lot you may find your muscles get tired more quickly, too. Belly bands (also known as belly belts, maternity belts or pregnancy belts) are worn over or just under the bump for extra support and comfort. There is a range to choose from – including robust maternity support belts – however, most mums-to-be find light support provides relief. Some women like to sleep in a belly band to help support their bump at night.
NB: If you are pregnant and experiencing severe back or pelvic pain, seek advice from a healthcare professional.
Pregnancy belly support where you need it most
A useful addition to your maternity underwear, Medela’s Supportive Belly Band has reinforced zones, specially designed to target any aches and tired muscles in your lower back and belly. Available in a range of sizes, the band fits gently over your bump so it feels snug and lightly supported without being restricted. Because the belly band is made from flexible material with an extra-stretchy panel across the tummy area, it can expand to accommodate your growing bump (and shrink back again after pregnancy) without feeling too tight.
How to wear the Medela Supportive Belly Band
The Supportive Belly Band simply pulls on like underwear – there are no clips, zips or other fastenings to deal with. Its seamless design means it won’t show through your maternity clothes. And if your tops have become a bit short now your bump is getting bigger, the belly band can provide an extra-soft layer against your skin.
