The Baby Hugger Maternity Support hugs the belly closer to the spine by providing lift from the top and sides, and support under the belly. This unique three-way lift not only feels comfortable, but it also helps take the weight off the back, bladder, veins, and ligaments. During pregnancy, ligaments can become overstretched which may lead to prolapses, incontinence, stretch marks, varicose veins, edema and other discomforts later in life. Wearing the Baby Hugger not only helps throughout the pregnancy but also means better health in the future.
The cool, comfortable cotton fabric is completely adjustable, fitting for 9 months of pregnancy. The side straps increase the lift and keep the main strap wide on the shoulders, off the neck and out of sight. An easy open and close panel in the underpants is convenient for bathroom use. The Baby Hugger was developed by a physical therapist who specialized in orthopedic and women’s health and is recommended by doctors, nurses, physical therapists, midwives, childbirth educators, massage therapists and, most importantly, moms. Made in the USA and contains no latex.
