Why would I need Compression Stockings during my pregnancy?
With pregnancy comes a whole new list of things that will start happening to your body. One of these things is swelling. Your body will produce about 50% more blood and bodily fluids when you are pregnant. This is a normal occurrence and is called edema. Pregnant women experience it on the face, hands, ankles, legs, and feet. You can experience swelling in your feet at any time during your pregnancy, but it is usually noticed around the fifth month and may increase during the third trimester. However, you need to know that even though swelling is normal it could also be something serious. There is a pregnancy condition called pre-eclampsia, which causes sudden swelling. If this happens, you need to contact your doctor immediately so that you can be monitored immediately.
Compression stockings are a great way to combat swelling in the feet and ankles during pregnancy. If you experience cramps and pains in your swollen legs and feet, then compression stockings can do you wonders. Compression stockings can also help with varicose veins and stop them from spreading because the socks make it easier for blood to flow back to your heart. promote circulation and help the blood flow to your
heart through the venous system. Compression stockings do this by adding gradual amounts of pressure to your leg. Most of the compression occurs at your ankles and gradually decreases as it wraps further up your leg. Compression stockings can also help with leg cramps, swelling, varicose veins, leg pain and help prevent deep vein thrombosis.
Swelling in your feet is normal during pregnancy, but it can also be painful. You can relieve this pain and reduce the swelling using compression stockings. Compression stockings can help improve your blood circulation, relieve cramps, and help you to stop the puffiness in your feet.
