Enjoy a Healthy Pregnancy with a Maternity Belt

Pregnancy, as many women know, can be a heavy-going 9 months, and we are not even talking about the delivery. Pregnant women spend most of their time worrying about the health of their baby and the best way to have a safe pregnancy, and ensuring a healthy baby is achieved by guarding every aspect of your own health as much as possible during pregnancy, which can be done with the help of a maternity belt.

A maternity belt is by far one of the most helpful, yet one of the least known maternity products on the market. Designed to support your baby bump from the first trimester all the way through to delivery, and also while healing, a maternity belt can be a real lifesaver.

The two biggest problems that affect pregnant women are lower back pain and sore abdominal muscles. Why and how? Well, during pregnancy your body goes through some incredible hormonal changes. Firstly, your body naturally produces a hormone called relaxin, which softens and loosens the joints, tendons and ligaments around your pelvis, which then enables your pelvis to move out of place to make space for the baby to grow and make birth easier. Unfortunately for many women, this movement can result in severe abdominal discomfort and lower back pain. A maternity belt can support your back and your bump to reduce these pressures, and can put a stop to pregnancy related pain altogether. It can make your entire pregnancy more comfortable. Below we list some of its benefits:

  • • Relieves backache and discomfort of pregnancy.
  • • Offers support and comfort during exercise.
  • • Prevents varicosities and swelling.
  • • Improves blood circulation in the pelvic area.
  • • Alleviates discomfort by supporting lumbar & abdominal regions.
  • Reduces stretch marks.

Nowadays, a maternity belt can come in a variety of designs, styles and colours, to the delight of many pregnant women. Some women feel that they need to "lift" their belly to relieve pressure, while others have ligament laxity that needs compression. Because maternity wear is getting more attention as an important part of a healthy pregnancy, the technology used to design maternity belts has improved and we, at Zee-TumTuk, have refined this innovation.

At Zee-TumTuk, we recognised the need for a product that could fulfil all of the above needs and more, and as a result, we decided to take our design to another level, making our maternity belt the most versatile maternity product on the South African market.

Working closely with one of South Africa’s top obstetricians and gynaecologists, our maternity belt is designed to reduce pressure on your back, abdomen, stomach and legs – reducing strain on your tissues and providing immediate relief.  Instead of carrying all of your weight up front, our pregnancy belts help to transfer the weight evenly and comfortably to your spine, a part of your back that is designed to handle more weight

At Zee-TumTuk, we not only created a maternity belt that can support your pregnant belly, but we also created a super trendy product that can offer a multitude of other uses for pregnancy, post pregnancy, post abdominal surgery, and for when you want to add that smooth layered slimming look to your belly. Found in a range of fashionable colours, our maternity belt is trendy enough to wear over your clothing. Get the support that you have been looking for, so you can enjoy a healthy pregnancy from Zee-TumTuk today.
