The Benefits of Compression Socks During Pregnancy - Mumberry
Posted on 16 May 2016
We all know that being a mom is the most important job in the world so it’s essential for your feet to be dependable during pregnancy. Statistically, 75% of all women experience swelling in the legs, ankles and feet when they are pregnant. Tootsies designs maternity compression socks to address this very significant and prevalent issue. Compared to your off-the-shelf standard cotton socks, our mild to moderate, graduated compression socks increase blood circulation to reduce swelling so you’ll feel better than ever!
You will immediately notice the special support given to the soles of your feet and ankles while wearing tootsies. If you put them on first thing in the morning before fluids have a chance to pool in your legs, ankles and feet, you will definitely have the best results.
We are not the only ones who believe in compression socks during pregnancy. Doctors everywhere highly recommend women wear compression socks at this time to not only reduce swelling, but also to help minimize flattened arches long after pregnancy, prevent and reduce varicose and spider veins, and prevent permanent foot growth (length and width) as a result of extended periods of swelling.
There is science behind wearing compression. Whether at rest or on the go, your tootsies are working. The graduated compression technology increases blood circulation from your feet up towards your heart and lungs. With more efficient circulation, swelling will be significantly reduced. You will feel less fatigue. Your tired muscles will feel replenished with fresh oxygen. This is turn reduces soreness, giving you the extra stamina needed while you’re carrying your precious cargo for nine months. Long known as an athletic product, compression socks are also perfect for pre- or post-pregnancy wear as well for work (people that spend a lot of time on their feet during the day), exercise (for recovery and muscle stability) and for travel.
At tootsies, we aim to deliver a high quality, medically recommended product that is also fun and fashionable. We believe that women are at their most beautiful when they are pregnant and we wanted our sock to reflect that so we created a line of maternity compression socks that not only help to solve a problem, but also has a sense of style and beauty. We focus on fashion as we do on relief and we want women wearing tootsies to feel great and look good!
