A Unique Pregnancy Belt That’s Better than the Rest

Congratulations, you are pregnant! Pregnancy is one of the most incredible, life changing experiences any woman can go through. There are some women who glide through their pregnancy glowing and are full of energy, and there are some women who do not find it easy at all!  Pregnancy can be hard on the body and can come with a few unwelcomed side effects, with the most common being back pain!

If you are experiencing back pain, you are certainly not alone! Studies show that 50% of pregnant women experience back pain, 8% of whom struggle with severe back pain. But being pregnant does not mean that you have to be in agony all of the time and this is why we, at Zee-TumTuk, are here to provide you with a solution. Thanks to our maternity belt, expecting moms can now experience comfortable and instant relief from strained lower back pain.

What Causes Back Pain During Pregnancy?

Pregnancy is a time when your body goes through some significant changes, as your tummy needs to make space for the baby. But your tummy is not the only thing that changes with pregnancy. During pregnancy, your body secretes hormones, such as oestrogen, progesterone and relaxin. The role of these hormones is to loosen your abdominal muscles, so it can stretch by as much as 50% to accommodate the growth of your baby.

Now this is where your back pain starts; as your pelvis moves out of place for that baby, it reduces the support that it usually provides to your back, which is a big cause of those daily aches and pains that you are experiencing. As a result, your centre of gravity changes and this causes your posture to change, which is another stress to your back. There is also weight gain, which adds additional pressure and stress onto your lower back, and then there is excessive standing and improper lifting and bending. As you can see, all of these combined factors place a huge burden on the spine and can be a very painful experience for your poor fragile back to handle.

How Our Maternity Belt Works

Designed by an obstetrician and gynaecologist, our maternity belt reduces body and back pain by offering your abdomen, pelvis and back all of the support that it needs to enjoy a comfortable and glorious nine months of growing a beautiful and healthy baby. In addition, you can still retain the same wardrobe, without having to throw money away on new clothes. If that is not enough, take a look at some of the other valuable benefits that a maternity belt from Zee-TumTuk can offer you during your pregnancy:

  • Decreases pressure on the bladder.
  • Diminishes lower back pain and strain.
  • Ensures comfort during exercise.
  • Improves circulation in the pelvic region.
  • Lessens your chances of varicose veins and leg swelling.
  • Prevents pre-term contractions.
  • Supports posture, which immediately reduces back pain.

Whether the weight of your belly is placing strain onto your lower back and abdominal muscles, or if you are a busy mom on your feet all day, supporting your tummy and back with a maternity belt from Zee-TumTuk will make a world of difference for a more comfortable, safe and enjoyable pregnancy. Do not let your pregnancy slow you down, simply contact Zee-TumTuk today to place your maternity belt order, or you can find our belt at Miané Maternity Wear in Pretoria or online at Gentle Presence.
