We are excited to offer our first giveaway on aMother Adventure! (Giveaway CLOSED)
Remember when we told you about how much the Sigvaris compression stockings have helped us with swollen feet during pregnancy? Well, as a follow up, we would like to offer you a free pair of calf length stockings in soft opaque. Also, Sigvaris has provided us with the following additional information regarding the stockings:
Graduated Compression Hosiery is tightest at the ankle and decreases and it moves up the leg. The compression acts as a layer of muscle, gently squeezing stretched vein walls. This built-in feature helps fight the force of gravity and circulate blood back to the heart more efficiently. When you wear graduated compression socks, you are improving your overall leg health.
Compression Hosiery benefits:
· Helps prevent and eliminate varicose and spider veins
· Provides relief from heavy, tired or achy legs from sitting or being on your feet all day
· Reduces risk of DVT (Deep Vein Thrombosis) during long distance travel, pregnancy and after surgery or trauma
· Improves overall blood flow and circulation
Wearing graduated compression during pregnancy can also help you maintain leg health while expecting.
50% of women develop varicose veins from a second pregnancy while 30% of women develop varicose veins from their first pregnancy. Wearing compression hosiery and socks helps decrease these risk of developing varicose and spider veins. It can also provide some relief from swollen feet and legs during pregnancy. It is recommended that women wear compression for 6 weeks after having a C-section to help prevent a DVT (Deep Vein Thrombosis). DVT’s kill more people every year than AIDS and breast cancer combined!
