Wearing Compression Socks During Pregnancy

To bring a new life into this world is a great achievement that will bring you much
joy. However, pregnancy is challenging. Swelling legs and varicose veins are
common issues for pregnant women. Wearing Dr. Segal’s Compression Socks while
pregnant will reduce leg pain, swelling, and varicose veins.
Pregnancy can be painful and uncomfortable on your legs. This is largely due to
blocked circulation caused by prevalent changes in one’s body. This reduced leg
circulation and increased pressure can cause leg swelling, something that is increased
when accompanied by long periods of sitting or standing. Leg swelling can 
cause a great amount of leg pain, which makes it painful and uncomfortable to walk.
Wearing Dr. Segal’s Compression Socks will alleviate your leg pain, allowing you to
continue your day in comfort.
Also common during pregnancy are varicose veins, spider veins and dvts (deep vein 
thrombosis),  especially in women who are on their second or third pregnancy. You will
be most at risk of varicose veins or leg health problems during pregnancy if you have a
family history of varicose veins or have had a venous condition prior to pregnancy. Dr.
Segal’s Compression Socks help blood move from the lower legs back up to the heart,
reducing leg swelling, the prevalence of varicose veins and the risk of dvt's.  
Choosing which compression sock is right for you should be discussed with your
physician.  There are varying degrees of compression levels in compression socks.
Women commonly use 15-20mmHg compression socks during their first and second
trimesters. Higher degrees of compression are often used when entering the third
trimester of a pregnancy.
Along with wearing compression socks, the most important thing you can do to help
reduce leg pain, swelling and varicose veins during pregnancy is to stay active and
elevate your legs.  Leg movement helps with blood flow and circulation, reducing the
prevalence of varicose veins and swelling.
If you or somebody you know is pregnant, buy a pair of Dr. Segal’s Compression
Socks to help yourself or your friend relieve leg pain that is so prevalent during
these beautiful but difficult nine months. You will no longer have to walk in pain; Dr.
Segal’s Compression Socks will help you live pain-free while awaiting your baby’s
arrival.
