There is no denying that pregnancy takes a toll on your body. Your organs have shifted, your hips have widened and you’re carrying a 30lbs moving ball.
Regardless of the size of your baby or your frame most moms need extra support during their pregnancy.
Quite a few brands have created belly support. They are designed to support your hips, ease lower back pains, pelvic floor pains, and round ligament pains. Having this support gives moms-to-be the relief they need to continue their daily routines and they get closer to delivery.
It’s important to note that there is a difference between a belly band and a belly belt. Bands, while nice under your clothing don’t really provide the needed support during pregnancy. Belts, however, are designed to reduce pregnancy discomfort by compressing your low back thus taking pressure off the rest of your body.
We have rounded up our favorites.
Here are our top 7 pregnancy support belts!
