How they work
SRC Pregnancy Garments have been specifically designed to support your ‘baby carrying pelvis’ and reduce the stress placed on it through your pregnancy. This allows you to stay at work for longer, helps you get back on your feet and move around more easily and just generally makes you feel like yourself again
The science behind the comfort
Patented Anatomical Support Panels (ASP) in the SRC Pregnancy Garments deliver targeted compression, ideal for treating multiple conditions like lower back pain, pelvic girdle pain and mild varicose veins as well as vulvar varicosities.
They provide support to the pelvic area through gentle yet constant compression, activating muscles and encouraging core stability, reducing swelling and muscle fatigue.
The ASP deliver True Cross Compression (TCC) as each layer within the panel is cut on a different plane so that during activity no compression is lost at any time.
The triple layer compression ASP including the gusset panel, have been shown to significantly help with the pressure associated with vulval veins.
Pregnancy Belt vs SRC Pregnancy Shorts?
Unlike belly bands, SRC Pregnancy Shorts can treat multiple conditions, are more comfortable to wear and are hence more likely to be worn for longer periods which increases their effectiveness.
Do up a belly band too tight and you risk muscle deactivation. Belly bands should only be worn for short periods, 2-3 hours to prevent deactivation of your muscles. In some cases, you may benefit from both the SRC Pregnancy Shorts AND a pregnancy belt.
Endorsed by the Australian Physiotherapy Association
SRC Pregnancy Shorts and Leggings have been designed in consultation with a leading Melbourne obstetrician, Dr. Grant Saffer. The targeted anatomical support panels fit perfectly with your natural curves and deliver consistent gentle compression.
