The Importance of Compression Leggings During Pregnancy

The Importance of Compression Leggings During Pregnancy

Written by TheRY

Discovering the joy of pregnancy brings excitement and anticipation. As an expectant mother, you naturally prioritise the health and well-being of both yourself and your baby. While nutrition and exercise are often emphasised, the importance of circulation during pregnancy is often overlooked. Surprisingly, 8 out of 10 women experience poor circulation during pregnancy, which can lead to fatigue, swelling, and discomfort. Fortunately, we have valuable insights to share. Below, we will delve into common concerns such as swelling and varicose veins and introduce TheRY Compression Leggings, a game-changing solution designed to support healthy circulation.

Baby’s Health: At 12 weeks, your body has already developed a remarkable new organ—the placenta. Your growing baby relies on maternal blood flow through the umbilical cord to receive essential nutrition, oxygen, and life support. Additionally, your circulatory system plays a crucial role in eliminating waste products and carbon dioxide from your baby in utero. Healthy circulation is vital for optimal growth and development. So, it's important to keep your blood flowing for a healthy and happy baby.

Battling Swelling: Swelling, or edema, is a common concern experienced by expectant mothers due to compromised circulation. In fact, 65% of pregnant women suffer from swelling in their ankles, feet, and legs. When blood flow is hindered, excess fluid accumulates in the tissues, causing discomfort and puffiness. By prioritising healthy circulation, you can effectively reduce swelling and enhance your overall well-being. Trust us, your feet will thank you!

Varicose Veins: Varicose veins are another common occurrence during pregnancy, affecting approximately 40% of women with poor circulation. As your blood volume increases by 50% by the 34th week, your blood vessels face increased strain. This can lead to the enlargement and twisting of veins, resulting in varicose veins. By prioritizing circulation, you can minimise the risk of developing these unsightly and uncomfortable (not to mention, at times very painful) veins, allowing you to show off those fabulous legs throughout your journey.

Benefits of Pilates: Pilates exercises offer a safe and effective way to stay active during pregnancy. With controlled movements and deep breathing, Pilates works wonders for promoting blood flow and oxygenation throughout your body. So, turn on your favorite class and enjoy those graceful moves while giving your circulation the boost it needs.

Benefits of TheRY Maternity Leggings: TheRY Compression Leggings are carefully designed to address the specific needs of expectant mothers. They are a game-changer when it comes to enhancing your pregnancy circulation and keeping you feeling light and comfortable.

What sets them apart is their dedication to optimised circulation, benefiting both you and your baby.

Graduated Compression: TheRY Saviour Maternity Leggings feature graduated compression technology. This means they apply gentle and targeted pressure to your lower legs, with the firmest compression at the ankles gradually becoming less firm as you move up the body. This strategic design aids in the circulation of blood back to your heart, alleviating swelling and enhancing overall comfort. TheRY Compression Leggings have gained recognition from midwives, obstetricians, IVF specialists, nurses and women’s health professionals for their commitment to quality and effectiveness. Their graduated compression technology adheres to the hospital standard in Australia, with a pressure rating of 15-20mmHg, comparable to the compression found in hospital TED socks. TheRY graduated compression products have been assessed and listed by the Australian Register of Therapeutic Goods (ARTG/TGA).

Belly Support: As your body undergoes incredible changes, TheRY Saviour Maternity Leggings offer intelligent support for your growing belly. Designed to adapt to your changing shape, they provide the perfect balance of comfort and circulation support. The soft, smooth belly panel grows with you from the first trimester to third. Look good and feel good, mama!

Modern Design: TheRY Saviour Maternity Leggings go beyond functionality by offering a variety of stylish options. They seamlessly blend into your wardrobe, allowing you to stay on-trend while enjoying the benefits of improved circulation. The smooth belly panel means they can be worn as outer-wear ‘bump proud’. They have 2 deep pockets to store your essentials and zips on the lower leg to help you get them on as compression is notoriously hard to get over your feet - especially with a bump in the way!

Taking care of your circulation is vital for your well-being and the healthy development of your baby. Swelling, varicose veins, and other circulatory challenges are common during pregnancy, but they can be effectively managed. By incorporating strategies such as Pilates exercises, elevating your legs, and embracing TheRY Compression Leggings, you can support healthy circulation and enjoy a more comfortable pregnancy journey.
