Support Your Pregnant Belly with a Pregnancy Belt

Have you just found out that you are pregnant? Congratulations! I bet you cannot wait to meet your beautiful bundle of joy. Pregnancy is both one of life’s most incredible miracles and one of the most joyous moments of a woman’s life. However, during the next 9 months, your body is going to go through some incredible and significant changes that may affect the comfort of your pregnancy.

70% of Pregnant Women Experience Back and Pelvic Pain

During pregnancy, your body naturally secretes hormones, such as oestrogen, progesterone and relaxin. These hormones are your body’s way of loosening the abdominal muscles and facilitating the stretching of the abdominal area by as much as 50%, while your baby grows. They also act to loosen the pelvic structure, joints and ligaments, to prepare your body for childbirth. Your uterus is going to expand, your organs are going to shift, your skin is going to stretch and your pelvis is going to widen.

It is an unfortunate but inevitable truth that more than 70% of pregnant women develop excruciating pelvic and lower back pains during pregnancy from these hormonal changes. In fact, pregnancy and back pain go hand in hand, so it is best that you are armed and prepared for it. There are numerous remedies, such as massage, stretches and bed rest, that will alleviate the aches and discomfort of pregnancy, but none are as effective as a pregnancy belt.

Benefits of a Pregnancy Belt

Women all over the world are turning to pregnancy belts. Firstly, they enable pregnant a woman to partake in many activities that she would otherwise be unable to and in addition to this, a pregnancy belt reduces lower back pain, lessens bladder pressure, decrease swelling and other varicosities, boosts pelvic region circulation, prevents pre-term contractions and provides comfort during exercise. And, they are even known to reduce stretch marks!

The Zee-TumTuk Pregnancy Belt

Designed to reduce pressure on your back, abdomen, stomach and legs – reducing strain on your tissues and providing immediate relief, we at Zee-TumTuk offer a unique, successful solution for these uncomfortable pregnancy pains. Our pregnancy belt is the ultimate in comfort during pregnancy and following any kind of abdominal surgery.

The robust front band of the belt provides comfortable abdominal support, as it naturally lifts and lightens any pressure bearing down on the abdominal region. This is a great relief to that uncomfortable heavy “dragging” sensation, especially when you have suffered a prolapse.

Instead of carrying all of your weight up front, our pregnancy belt gently transfers the heavy weight evenly and comfortably onto your spine, which is designed to handle more weight. In fact, our pregnancy belt takes its design one step further and transitions from a pregnancy belt into a post pregnancy band, back supporter and hip shaper.

Designed to be worn around the house, at the office or gym, running errands or even to bed, the Zee-TumTuk pregnancy belt has been a life saver for many women throughout South Africa. It will never slip down during the day, can be worn day and night, and comes in a combination of high fashion colours. In fact, our maternity belt is so trendy that you can even wear it over your clothes!

If you are pregnant and tired of being in pain, our pregnancy belt is your answer for finding relief. We have had wonderful feedback from pregnant and post pregnant moms across South Africa, and we are excited to offer a maternity wear product that can really make a huge difference in your pregnancy.
