They have everything from the hottest interiors to the best quality toys to handy tricks for making your life as parents even easier and have a great supportive community on their Facebook page for new mums.
We are really proud to be included in their list of pregnancy support belts and belly belts even though our product is very different to the rest on the list. It’s a great opportunity for new mums to discover the benefits of SRC pregnancy garments and have a choice of medical appliances to alleviate common aches and pains associated with pregnancy.
So, what’s a compression short doing amongst a bevy of belly belts and pregnancy support belts? The answer is that they provide assistance using the same principles of compression for the very same conditions (lower back pain, pelvic girdle pain and pelvic instability) plus a common condition that cannot be treated by a belly band or belt - vulvar varicosities.
There are a number of features that make SRC Pregnancy shorts different and often more advantageous than pregnancy support belts and maternity belly bands, although in some cases such as extreme pelvic instability they can be used together; with the pregnancy support belt being worn over the SRC Pregnancy shorts.
SRC’s patented multi-layered Anatomically Support Panels (ASP) deliver targeted compression to address multiple conditions such as Lower Back Pain, Vulval Varicosities, Pelvic Instability and Pelvic Girdle Pain. They provide consistent and anatomically targeted compression during movement something that is not possible with a pregnancy belt or belly band as they have to be constantly readjusted to stand up / sit down.
Muscle deactivation is an inherent risk that exists with all belly bands and pregnancy belts, which is why some leading obstetricians and women’s health specialists recommend only wearing pregnancy belts for a few hours a day. You can read more here in our previous blog whereas SRC Pregnancy garments can be worn day and night, delivering 24 hour wearability and pain relief without deactivating your muscles.
