Compression Socks For Pregnancy Swelling
It is no secret that most women experience swollen and aching feet and ankles during pregnancy. This is largely due to blocked circulation caused by changes in mom's body as well as hormonal factors during pregnancy. Even celebrities are no stranger to this phenomenon (See Kim K and Jessica Simpson below).
The good news is that you can give swollen ankles (or cankles) sweet relief with Dr. Segals Compression Socks! Compression reduces swelling by enhancing blood circulation, preventing fluids from pooling into your foot and ankles.
Compression Socks For Varicose Veins during Pregnancy
Along with swelling, another common side-effect of pregnancy are unsightly and painful Varicose Veins and Spider Veins. They show up during pregnancy because of poor blood circulation due to increase in blood volume as well as growing baby putting pressure on the leg's vein walls. Studies show that around 50 - 70% of pregnant women will develop one type of varicose veins, including minor forms such as spider veins.
Wearing compression socks while pregnant can help prevent and relieve varicose veins by increasing circulation in the lower legs.
Compression Socks For Blood Clot Risk during Pregnancy
Pregnancy causes hormonal changes that increase blood coagulability, a measure of how easily blood clots. As such, expectant moms have a six times higher risk of blood clots than women who aren't pregnant. The Risk continues to remain high for at least 6 weeks postpartum. The risk is also high when pregnant moms travel due airplane's cramped conditions and lack of movement, as this further decreases circulation.
Wearing compression socks reduces the risk of blood clots and complications.The pressure created by compression socks pushes fluid up the leg, which allows blood to flow freely from the legs to the heart.
