Back pain is an unfortunate, but all-too-common symptom for pregnant women. While you may find relief from stretches and exercises alone, using a maternity support belt can provide additional benefits:
Because prenatal exercise is getting more attention as an important part of a healthy pregnancy, the technology used to design maternity support belts is improving. These product designs are based on medical research with the goal of improving the comfort of women during the late stages of pregnancy. Many insurance companies will now pay for all or part of the cost of a maternity support belt and other "durable medical goods." Contact your insurance company to find out. If covered, ask your health care provider to write a prescription for a "mother-to-be-brace" so your costs can be covered.
