To ensure that the pelvis is flexible enough for birth, the body releases the hormone progesterone. This contributes to a loosening of the ligaments, the tissue and the muscles. However, this also weakens the strength of joints and stability of the muscles. The growing baby, the amniotic fluid, the placenta and the growing breast add extra weight, which puts additional strain on the muscles. The extra weight gathers in the abdominal region which often results in a hollow back with pregnant women. These factors – the loosening of the tissue of the pelvic ring, the additional weight and the unnatural position – often result in tensions and discomfort as of the 20th week of pregnancy. E.g. in back pain, pelvic pain and sciatic pain. The sensation of pain hinders the natural motion sequence and affects the well-being of pregnant women.
The GraviBelt® (post) pregnancy belt (also known as pregnancy bandage) serves to ease pregnancy-related problems. The wide and elastic belt of the GraviBelt® pregnancy bandage supports the back and lumbar spine relieving the pain. An upright position and the mobility are promoted. The narrower part of the pregnancy belt in the abdominal area can be fastened with an adjustable velcro fastener. Thus, you can adapt the flexible (post) pregnancy belt to the abdominal girth throughout your whole pregnancy. The ties attached to the back and the side of the belt allow an individual width adjustment. Moreover, an adjustment regarding personal needs for comfort and stability is possible. The six plastic rods that are sewed into the back region stabilise an upright position. This helps to further alleviate the pain.
The material consists of breathable fabrics and is therefore very comfortable to wear (47% polyamide, 28% polyester, 25% cotton).
