3.Common types of Pregnancy Belts

The belly support belts for pregnant women currently on the market are mainly divided into waist-type and shoulder-type.

(1)Shoulder-typeIt Is Safe To Wear A Maternity Belt?

The shoulder-type abdominal support belt is based on the shoulder as the bearing fulcrum.

 It is based on the physiological characteristics of the weight-bearing pressure of the abdomen during pregnancy. It has a three-dimensional design. 

The arms and palms of a bionic human are like human hands. In the past, the unreasonable waist lift method of squeezing the waist and squeezing the belly, does not squeeze the waist, does not press the abdomen, and really lifts the abdomen to protect the mother and the baby. This is a protective abdominal lift during pregnancy that obstetricians are more optimistic about today.

(2)Folding waist

The waist support belt uses the waist as a bearing stand point to support the abdomen. Although this method is simple, but from the perspective of the effect on the waist and abdomen, the folded waist type is not as good as the shoulder type.

4 Precautions

(1)Not suitable for long-term use.

Women should avoid wearing tight clothes during pregnancy. Wearing an abdominal belt may reduce the blood flow to the abdomen and the growing baby, so don't take too long each time.

(2) Lack of support.

Most of the abdominal support belts on the market, no matter what the brand, most can only provide a small compression force, but almost no support.

Since different pregnant women have different physical conditions, they need to be constantly adjusted according to their own conditions to achieve the most comfortable state. Improper adjustments will make pregnant women feel restrained.
