Although there are many different styles and products on the market, a belly band is designed to support the lower back and abdomen during pregnancy.

These flexible support garments may provide many benefits to active women who are pregnant, especially during the second and third trimesters.

Here are five ways a belly band can help you.

1. Belly bands help decrease your pain.
2. Belly bands provide gentle compression during activities.
3. They provide external cues for posture.
4. They allow you to engage comfortably in daily activities.
5. They can be worn after pregnancy for support.

Important Things to Know About Wearing a Belly Band

Wear a belly band or support garment for no more than two to three hours at a time to prevent over dependency.
Exercises to strengthen the transverse abdominis (TA) should be done in combination with the use of a belly band to strengthen the core muscles both during and after pregnancy.
Always consult your doctor before using any compression garments. Women with compromised circulation or abnormal blood pressure may be advised against the use of a belly band.
Belly bands are for temporary use and are not a permanent fix. It’s important to address the underlying dysfunction. A referral to physical therapy is recommended to address ongoing pain both during and after pregnancy.
