In this article, I thought of sharing what I’ve learnt about maternity compression socks from my research online.
Firstly, why it is recommended for pregnant ladies to wear compression stockings?
This is because of the changes on your hormones and the growing child-bearing uterus would have effects on your veins.
According to Sigvaris.com:
30 percent of women pregnant for the first time and 55 percent of women who have had two or more full-term pregnancies develop varicose veins. Consequently, many experience common symptoms such as heavy, tired, aching legs and swollen feet and ankles.
When a women is pregnant, spider veins and varicose veins tend to get worst. Your veins may become painful, warm and turn purple colour.
You will also experience painful leg cramps more often.
To reduce spider veins, vericose veins and leg cramps for pregnant women, you can try using compression therapy.
The concept of compression therapy is wearing elastic garment around your leg. This is achieve through the usage of compression stockings.
However, not all compression socks or stockings are the same.
For pregnant women, you should look for compression stockings which have different level of compression pressure around your ankle, calf and thigh.
The compression pressure around your leg is measured in millimeter of mercury (mmHg) or hecto Pascals (hPa).
1 mmHg = 1.33 hPa.
If you don’t understand what the scientific measurement means, don’t worry.
All you have to know is, the stocking has to be tightest around your ankle, a bit loose around your calf and comfortable around your thigh.
The effect of the different level of compression on your leg is to assist blood flow from your lower body back into your heart.
If you are looking for a pair of compression stocking for pregnant ladies, I would highly recommend the Aulora Socks with Kodenshi by BE International Marketing.
