We will show you what to do and what you need to feel more comfortable during your pregnancy as being pregnant isn’t easy and fun the whole time.

While much of the focus is on your baby and body changes, changes are also affecting your veins. The normal hormonal changes that occur with pregnancy affect the walls of your veins causing the vein walls to relax or dilate. During a pregnancy swollen ankles and swollen feet occur when your body fluids increase to nurture both you and your baby and accumulate in your tissues as a result of increased blood flow. Swollen ankles and swollen feet can cause pain. To help your body it is really important to avoid crossing your legs and standing for long periods. Our compression socks and stockings help you where you need it the most: from the ankle upwards to your groin. This brings a noticeable improvement in the blood flow in your legs and helps reduce your swelling. Relaxation of the veins occurs early in the pregnancy – during the first trimester. Total blood volume also increases in the first trimester and gradually rises with gestation. Your total blood volume may increase as much as 45% in comparison to the non-pregnant level. Relaxation of the vein walls, especially in areas of venous valves may cause the valve to become incompetent – thus allowing backward flow of the venous blood.
Our compression socks, stockings and maternity pantyhose are available in three different levels designed to help specific venous conditions. Please ask your doctor which compression level will suits you the most to ensure medically effective management of your veins.
