Pregnancy and Varicose Veins:
Pregnancy is one of the most special times in a woman’s life. Unfortunately, during pregnancy, women may develop varicose veins in their legs. Varicose veins are veins that have become enlarged due to restricted blood flow. Varicose veins can lead to fullness, heaviness, aching, and sometimes pain in the legs.
Maternity and Compression:
Common treatments to varicose veins include getting more rest, watching your diet, and exercise. Most expecting mothers do not find this to be enough. Women have found much relief in wearing maternity compression socks during their pregnancy. Maternity compression socks and compression leg sleeves allow for increased circulation, helping to reduce or even eliminate the problem of varicose veins.
Fresh Legs - Maternity Compression Socks & Leg Sleeves
Maternity compression developed by Fresh Legs is designed to combat many of the unique problems faced by women during pregnancy. Made using a seamless design, they ensure superior comfort. Each pair of maternity compression socks and maternity compression leg sleeves feature graduated compression. This means that the greatest amount of compression is in the lower part of the garment, and as one progresses upward, the compression lessens. Graduated compression is different than uniform compression in that it optimizes the amount of blood flow by providing the greatest amount of compression where it is needed most.
Fresh Legs Maternity Compression Leg Sleeves are designed with a superior fabric and design that allows women to experience ultimate relief during their pregnancy. The Fresh Legs Maternity Compression Leg Sleeves are available in 12 colors, making them much more attractive than other compression maternity stockings.
