Maternity Hose: Maternity Hose Supports Tired Pregnancy Legs

In an ideal world, pregnancy would mean only rest and relaxation while you nurture the little one growing within you. The reality is that many pregnant women experience no respite from their daily duties during pregnancy, and the constant motion can leave pregnant women with tired, aching legs at the end of the day. The good news is that maternity hose is a little-known weapon against pregnancy leg pain.

How does it work? The tight, supportive fibers of maternity hose (like those manufactured by Sigvaris, Mediven, Juzo, and Jobst) squeeze against the veins in your legs. This allows blood to circulate more easily and makes it less likely that you’ll develop varicose and spider veins. Varicose and spider veins often develop during a woman’s pregnancy.

Hairstylists, teachers, nurses, or other professions that have you on your feet all day can be especially tiresome when you’re carrying the 25 or so extra pregnancy pounds. Pregnant women in these types of professions often find that maternity hose can relieve their tired, aching legs.

And don’t worry – maternity support stockings come in a variety of styles, colors, and compression levels to fit your fashion needs. Knee high and thigh high length stockings are available, as well as casual and dress socks.
