Background: Pregnancy complaints
Pregnancy is a gratifying and very personal experience. It should not be affected by discomfort in its advanced stage. At the beginning of the sixth month, mothers-to-be often suffer from pregnancy complaints. E.g. back pain, abdominal discomfort, pelvic and vaginal pressure and pain in the pubic symphysis. Abdominal discomfort is often accompanied by the feeling of having to support the abdomen with the hands. These symptoms impair the well-being and lead to a conscious or unconscious restriction of physical activity.
GraviBody® enables pregnant women to remain physically active in the last trimester of their pregnancy because the musculature in the abdomen and back area are relieved in that phase, in which it is particularly and often painfully stretched. By preventing or reducing the pain symptoms caused by walking and other movements, pregnant woman are more likely to stay physically active. Hence, the GraviBody® maternity support belt promotes fitness and well-being during pregnancy.
