All the best for your back during pregnancy

Pregnancy hormones cause ligaments to become softer and more elastic. The mother’s growing baby belly shifts the body’s centre of gravity. Her abdominal wall tightens and the load on the lumbar vertebra region increases. This can lead to back pain.

After pregnancy, it is important to help the body regenerate. The still elastic ligaments, for example, cause discomfort in the sacroiliac joints (sacrum and ilium joints). The lower part of the spinal column merges with the pelvis there. Since the body transitions from one axis (spinal column) to two axes (two legs) there, this area is particularly susceptible – even outside of pregnancy. The pain can radiate into the lumbar spine.

Compression stockings – a blessing for the veins during pregnancy

Compression stockings – a blessing for the veins during pregnancy

Tired and swollen legs in the course of the day are a common side effect during the months of pregnancy. The expectant mother gradually gains weight. Her body produces more blood and the pressure in her veins increases. Many women first notice spider veins or varicose veins during pregnancy. The pressure of the stocking counteracts the leg muscles from the outside: during movement the muscles become tense, the veins between the muscles are compressed, and the venous valves close better. As a result, the blood is purposefully pumped to the heart. The swelling subsides. Medical compression stockings can relieve the strain on the legs and promote well-being. They can also reduce the risk of developing thrombosis during and after pregnancy.

Skin care for your legs

Dysfunction of the venous system – caused among other things by pregnancy – can also affect the surrounding skin tissue: your skin becomes more sensitive. Wearing a medical compression stocking every day can make your skin dry out. That’s why medi offers a special care range that pampers your legs during pregnancy. It supplies your skin with moisture: the daytime gel refreshes, while night-time gel helps your skin regenerate. And for in between, there is a cooling spray you can spray directly onto the medi stocking while you wear it. The gentle foam lotion medi soft provides moisture around the clock.
