Q. Can I sleep in the Pregnancy garments?
Yes! We think our Pregnancy garments are your perfect sleeping companion. You will feel supported and stable as you sleep,
waking up feeling refreshed. The gentle compression does not deactivate your muscles and will assist in minimizing pelvic pain.
Q. How many hours a day can I wear my Pregnancy garment?
You should wear your SRC Pregnancy Shorts or Leggings for as many hours as they feel comfortable.
Your shorts or leggings can be worn both day and night.
Q. Do the SRC Pregnancy Shorts help with Varicose Veins?
SRC Pregnancy garments will assist with relieving symptoms of vulvar varicosities, however, for mild varicose veins and leg
swelling we recommend the SRC Pregnancy Leggings rather than the Shorts Mini Length.
*Please note: SRC Pregnancy Leggings have a gentle level of graduated compression in the legs. These are suitable for women with mild
varicose veins or swelling. This product will not provide enough compression for moderate or severe varicose veins of the legs.
Women often complain that wearing a grade 2 or 3 compression stocking for long periods can be
difficult due to them becoming hot and tight. We hear you! That’s why the SRC Leggings were designed with a specific level of
compression so that women can wear their compression stockings under the SRC
Leggings for a number of hours during the day.
Once the compression stockings have been removed the SRC Leggings
will continue to provide mild graduated compression so the the benefit of having worn the stockings is not lost.
Q. WHY DO MORE HEALTH CARE PROFESSIONALS RECOMMEND SRC PREGNANCY SHORTS AND LEGGINGS?
SRC Pregnancy Shorts and Leggings have been designed in consultation with a leading Melbourne obstetrician, Dr. Grant Saffer. The targeted anatomical support panels fit perfectly with your natural curves and deliver consistent gentle compression.
The garment provides superior support without any feeling of restriction.
SRC Health has the most extensive and evidence-based maternity compression range in the world that has been designed by women, for women.
We are committed to implementing findings from the latest scientific and medical research into our garments to support women in their maternity journey.
SRC Pregnancy garments are registered with the Therapeutic Goods Administration and endorsed by the Australian Physiotherapy Association.
