Relief from Vulvar Varicosities

I am 27 weeks pregnant and experiencing the pain and swelling of a vulvar varicosity. I thought it would go away after resting, but it didn’t!
Once I received the belt and straps, I immediately put them on, and couldn’t believe the relief that came from wearing them. When I have them on, I can be on feet for longer periods of time and do what I need to do around the house. I can chase my son around and play with him outside, which I had to stop doing before I bought the belt and groin straps. I have friends who are nurses or work on their feet, and I’ve urged them to buy this for themselves when they’re pregnant.
These are fantastic products, and the company is amazing in their support and general rapport with their customers. I’m so thankful I found Babybellyband and have been spreading the word of these amazing garments and company!  Lindsay , Nutritionist Heart Speaks Health

Pelvic physical therapist Loves Babybellyband

As a pelvic physical therapist, I love finding products for pregnant and postpartum moms to improve their comfort. As a pregnant mama running after her two toddlers, I’ve been looking for the right product to give my body some more support. Let me tell you, this band is EVERYTHING! It hugs in all the right places, allows me to stay active, and significantly reduces discomfort and heaviness at the end of the day. Will be sporting this for the remainder of my pregnancy! Thank you, Babybellyband!

I am a physical therapist that specializes in Women’s health and pregnancy. I am constantly recommending the Baby Belly Band due to its great support, comfortable material, and affordable price. I am so happy that this product exists as it really is a lifesaver for patients with pubic symphysis pain, sacroiliac pain, low back pain, and hip pain!

Dr. Juan Michelle Martin PT, DPT

My clients have loved the Baby Belly Band and reported that it offers great support during pregnancy. In particular I have loved recommending it because it also comes with additional attachments including those for vulvar varicosities, which many people have reported as very helpful in dealing with pelvic pain during pregnancy.

Maternity Support Band Recommended by Physical Therapists

Best Maternity Support Band recommended by Physical Therapists

Best Maternity Support Band I have found !

I’m a physical therapist specializing in pre and postpartum pelvic wellness, and I think I recommend the Baby Belly Band three times each day! It seems like my colleague and I have tried every belly band on the market, but nothing has been able to take the place of this product on our shelves. Unlike other products, the double band system is more comfortable and more effective at providing compression and lift where it’s needed. I also love that it’s flexible – my patients can wear it for lifting weight off of their abs and pelvic floor, or they can use it for pelvic girdle support and treatment of sacroiliac or pubic symphysis discomfort in pregnancy and postpartum.  This is the best maternity support band we have found!
If you’re on the fence, don’t hesitate to get this product. I wish more women did!

Vulvar Varicosities Relief

Vulvar Varicosities Relief
I am so thankful for your product. I can’t even go 30 minutes without it. My OB said there isn’t much she can do for patients with the same issues so she was excited to hear about something that actually works 🙂
I just wanted to rave about how much I love the groin support for my terrible vulva varicose veins. I suffered tremendously with them in my last pregnancy and since I’ve been using my support with my current pregnancy, I have absolutely no pain. I love it 🙂

I was bragging to my obstetrician today about the product and she was requesting that I brought some information about your products to my next appointment. She said she has had a few recent patients suffering with them and is so pleased to find a solution.

Thank you again

Bilateral inguinal hernia support

Bilateral inguinal hernia support solutions

“I am in my second pregnancy and had bilateral inguinal hernias that emerged in the first pregnancy. With this pregnancy, they have been more painful and started even earlier. I didn’t use any support with my first pregnancy, but this time I was in a lot more pain so I ordered the baby belly band with the groin straps. They are unbelievable. I went from being in unbearable pain while being on my feet to forgetting that I even have the hernias. The contrast is night and day and I am so thankful that I found these. I love that I can wear them under my clothes and I do most days. I cannot rave enough about this product. Thank you so much for dramatically improving my quality of life!!!!!!

Pelvic Lymphedema Compression Support that works

Pelvic Lymphedema Compression Support that works !

I had a total hysterectomy in May of this year, including the removal of 64 lymph nodes, followed by radiation. I’m one of the lucky ones, as my endometrial cancer was stage 1 & my prognosis is excellent!

Having said that, the extensive lymph node removal has left me with pelvic  Lymphedema.
Although doctors & Lymphedema therapy specialists  informed me that compression is imperative, they had no recommendations for a product that would effectively compress the lower pelvis & labia. Compression stockings not only didn’t work, they were unnecessary & uncomfortable, as I don’t have swelling in my legs.

Discovering the Baby Belly Band with the Groin Bands has put me back on my feet!
I place & adjust the band across my bikini line & then criss-cross the groin bands for extra compression.
I’ve been using the bands for about 2 months & there’s no question about the improvement.  My swelling is under control. If I don’t wear the bands, by the end of the day, I’m swollen again & my equilibrium is off due to the pooling of fluid.
As long as I’m wearing the bands, I don’t have the feeling of pressure that pulls downward & forces me to get off my feet.

I would like to help in any way I can to spread the word to healthcare professionals & other women who have complications after hysterectomies & make them aware of your amazing invention.

I also must mention what a pleasure it was to talk to you & to thank you for your excellent customer service!

With Warm Regards,
Lynda

Hernia in pregnancy

Hernia in Pregnancy Relieved

This testimonial is from our European branch, and shares a new way to use the Babybellyband® to relieve an inguinal hernia

Quote from Cindy in South Africa
“the Babybellyband® has been AMAZING! Without it my life would have been reduced to an immobile, feet up, hand on groin affair… not appealing at all!!
The Babybellyband® and groin belts have really done the trick! Helped me tremendously! I found that the additional belt that stretches halfway around from hip to hip and placed in front, on top of the Babybellyband® and groin bands is an excellent addition. It helps with tightening up the bellyband in a very comfortable fashion as well as assisting with keeping the groin bands in place. All in all I am so pleased with the product and how much it has enabled me to be mobile!”

Inguinal hernia support

I got inguinal hernia from my current pregnancy and it was getting more and more sore as my job requires me to stand all day and lift heavy objects.
immediately after putting the brace on, the soreness went away.
This is not a replacement for surgery but since there is no way of knowing if the hernia would still be a problem after i have given birth, this is the best option for now.
You have to use creativity for placement of the groin bands to achieve optimal support for the hernia … if you do not achieve immediate relief, then you must not have put it on right, or you might have an serious case that require immediate medical attention (blood circulation is already cut due to the extent of hernia). I’m in the medical field so I know for sure that this support is better than the others on the market. Even the surgeon that I consulted was amazed with this support and said he would recommend it to other patients of his.
Pros: relieves pain, reduces hernia discomfort, groin straps adjustable to the kind of support needed secondary to location of the hernia, easy to use.P.S. I bought my second baby belly band 2 weeks after I bought the first since it is so great and I would like to switch off for washing. Letting the first one rest a few days allowed it to return to a state that keeps the integrity of the band.

Comfortable and Discreet

I LOVE the baby belly band and don’t know what I’d do without it during pregnancy. In my second pregnancy I developed a hernia and this band is the only product I’ve tried that actually helps. It is also comfortable and discreet. I was concerned it would show under clothing and it does not at all. I would seriously not be able to go about my every day activities if it were not for this band. Thank you for making such an incredible product!

Surpassed My Expectations

The Babybellyband® has surpassed my expectations. I find great pain relief when using it so I now do not have to take over the counter medications to relieve my back pain. This is a product I would stand behind and recommend for pregnancy and many other therapeutic needs.

Easy to use and comfortable.

Easy to use and comfortable. Hardly noticeable, even under my office work clothing. This is a wonderful product that relieved so much physical stress on my abdomen and back. I’ve already recommended it to others who are pregnant or have general back pain and fatigue.

Immediate Pain Relief

The Babybellyband® brought immediate pain relief to my lower back and hips. The Velcro strips made for quick and easy fastening and adjustment. The fabric was very durable, easy to machine wash and tumble dry. I intend to use the product postpartum for relief of chronic back and hip pain.

5.0 out of 5 stars – bands are a must

Honestly, the bellyband by itself helps, but the bands/straps are a must. I have an inguinal hernia and I’m a nurse. I really don’t know how my groin would hold up without the support. Definitely worth the purchase.

I love, love, LOVE the Baby Belly Band

I love, love, LOVE the Baby Belly Band and the groin straps! I am 30 weeks pregnant and have an umbilical hernia as well as severe varicose veins. I was wearing the V2 Support Belt for the veins, but found that as my pregnancy progressed and I grew that the adjustable portion was not designed to fit my needs. As I adjusted it to get the support, the V2 Support Belt would not fit properly. A few weeks ago, my hernia started bothering me, and my midwife said I needed to get a Baby Belly Band for support. Well, I listened and I’m so glad I did! Not only do I have zero pain from the hernia now, but the groin straps I added to my order have proved to be a better solution for my varicose veins! The pressure is adjustable with them as well, but the source of what is adjusting them is firmly in place, so that it doesn’t decrease the size of the product just tightens for added support! I would recommend this product to anyone especially if you have another child you are lifting or running after while pregnant! (Oh, and the customer service is amazing as well!)

Great for Relieving Back Pain

The ab band is great for my back pain and I’m sure will prove to be even more of a help as my belly grows and the groin straps are a miracle. I have varicose veins that are excruciating and since I am only 4 months into my pregnancy I was not sure how I was going to make it through the rest of it but now that I have used this product I know how. They relieve so much of the pain that I can actually get through the day! Anyone who has trouble with varicose veins or back pain should def try this product. The customer service is fabulous as well.

CMN Professional Recommendation

I love your product and continue to recommend it to all my patients. Thank you for continuing to provide such good service.

Cesarean Section Support Belt eases pain post pregnancy

Cesarean Section support belt eases c-section and hernia pain post pregnancy.

The babybellyband has all but eliminated the pain I was having. I’m in the 30th week of my 4th pregnancy, and have had 3 Cesarean sections. Since my second Cesarean section, the left part of my stomach hangs lower than the rest. During my 3rd C-section, I had a hernia in the lower left portion of my stomach repaired.
During this pregnancy, I had been having increasing pain in the lower left part of my stomach that became incapacitating at times. I was having to curtail most of my activity. The doctor has been unable to feel a distinct hernia, and suggested that the weight of my stomach might just be pulling on scar tissue. The only suggestion she had was to reduce my activity.
I researched support products online as an alternative. Some products didn’t seem like they would be supportive enough. Other products seemed to be focused on lower back pain, but I didn’t have any back problems! I decided to order a Babybellyband® , and while I waited for it to ship, wore a folded crib sheet tied around my abdomen as a stopgap.
From the first day of using the Babybellyband® , my pain was virtually eliminated. I now have no pain and have been able to bring my activity level back to normal. The belly band holds the protruding part of my stomach up and holds everything in.
The band is very comfortable, even in the summer, and is easy to use. It stays put very well, and I like the fact that it’s machine washable!
I also bought the shoulder straps. The shoulder straps didn’t seem to provide much ‘lift’ for me, so I’ve stopped using them, but the belly band is great! Thanks for an excellent product.

Sincerely

Susan S.

Back pain and pre-eclampsia

Snug as a bug in a rug!!!
I have had back problems since about 5 months into my pregnancy with no relief in sight due to a small frame and pre-eclampsia. A co-worker brought the Babybellyband® with shoulder straps in for me and from the moment I put them on I had instant relief! The pulling and pressure is gone. I am walking and sitting straighter. I even got up in the middle of the night last night and put on just the band and for the first time in weeks I slept comfortably and without a million pillows stuffed under and around me.
I wish that I had known about this for my last two pregnancies. I will most certainly be recommending this to all of the pregnant women I know and will be bringing it to the attention of my OB and my chiropractor. Women do not have to suffer while pregnant.
This is the best invention for pregnant women! Thank you for your ingenuity!!

Symphysis Pubic Dysfunction SPD treatment

Symphysis pubis dysfunction spd treatment

Dear Caroline,
I received my Babybellyband® today. I can finally walk without searing pain from my SPD pain. It was really extraordinary of you to ship me the extra M sized groin band so fast.

Thank you for the courteous, prompt service and for going the extra step.
Thank you SO much.
Aloha!

Relief from Hip and Back Pain in Pregnancy

I can’t tell you how wonderful your Babybellyband® is! After receiving the band yesterday in the mail, I immediately tried it on. It was a little big but I expect it will be fitting perfect by the time I have this child. The only relief I’ve had from the hip and back pain was temporary after my monthly visit to the chiropractor which would only last a couple of days and the harmful amounts of Tylenol I was taking.  After putting on the Babybellyband® , I had no pain whatsoever within an hour. I wanted to write this review  to let others who are hesitant know just how great it really works and my only regret was not looking into buying this product with my first child, especially after the class 4 episiotomy. Now with a looming C-Section birth, I’m less worried about the effects of the surgery knowing this band will give me all the abdominal support I need. Please feel free to pass these comments along to anyone who has questions.

Thanks again, ~Keri

Incisional hernia relief

Incisional hernia relief and prevention “I am a 56 year old woman who suffers from an extremely large abdominal incisional hernia due to surgery site failure from two prior abdominal surgeries. While I am awaiting corrective surgery for this, I am in constant pain not only from my organs protruding through the incisional hernia, but also accompanying back and leg pain, not to mention fatigue from coping with this burden day after day.    Your Babybellyband® and shoulder support has helped give me relief from this pain and fatigue. I have told my hernia surgeon, Dr. Orlando Rocco III who is the Head of Surgery at Hartford Hospital how much it has helped me. I used your Babybellyband®  and shoulder straps for support of my abdomen post surgery and it supported me wonderfully.” -Marilyn Ducor- Colebrook, CT

Relief for Inguinal hernia during pregnancy

Relief for inguinal hernia during pregnancy :

Baby Belly Band has changed my life! I am currently only 15 weeks pregnant and have had an inguinal hernia since week 4! It was so bad I couldn’t even walk to the bathroom without holding my groin. As you can imagine, this wasn’t an option at work. I also have a 18 month old baby, so it was hard to be the mom I want to be. I found myself really depressed thinking I might be stuck to the couch for the rest of my pregnancy. With the Baby Belly Band, I can do anything I use to do. I can’t imagine what the next 25 weeks would have been like without. I am so thankful for this product. It really has given me my life back. -Krystle Henry, CA

Vaginal prolapse support band

The belly band and the groin bands have been a great help to me with my exterior vaginal prolapse, while awaiting an operation. I wear them with underpants and a maxi pad on the inside and as I say ‘it’s a big help’! Thank you.

Weight loss support band

I just received my belly band and tried it on (i’ve been on my feet for the last 2 hrs.) And it was instant relief. I know this is going to help as I work to lose weight. I will be able to do more walking without the back fatigue. I’m so glad I found your product, it is awesome!
Thanks, Michelle
