Pregnancy often comes with a number of leg-related discomforts caused by increased pressure on the circulatory system. Swelling of ankles and feet, leg cramps, and varicose veins are common problems for expectant moms. Compression stockings can be very helpful in improving blood circulation and providing relief.
Clinical studies show that graduated compression stockings are highly beneficial in promoting and maintaining leg health during pregnancy. Compression stockings help:
- Alleviate leg pain
- Contribute to preventing spider veins
- Reduce swelling
- Reduce risk of varicose veins, phlebitis, and thrombosis
Many women continue wearing their compression stockings for years after the pregnancy enjoying the comfort and many benefits of compression hosiery.
