In my fifth month of pregnancy (around 20-22nd week) I started suffering from extreme back pain.It use to be so severe some time that I needed K’s support to walk to the next room. During that period I got this maternity support band and have been wearing it off and on. This belt is extremely helpful for those women who suffer from lower back pain and I have heard that some women even wear it after pregnancy too.

Belt which I bought from Mom and me store was little lose initially but as the baby started growing it adjusted well .These are available in various sizes keeping in mind the shape, weight and height of all the ladies. One doesn’t have to worry about the fitting in these but I would suggest you to buy it from the store rather than ordering it online .

The one which I got costed INR 900 and I saw most of the belts in similar price range.My maternity belt looks like what is shown in the picture above.It’s soft with a stretch band at its back which is adjustable and gives back support.It gives that “lift” feeling and my body feels more in control after wearing it.
These belts are most helpful in the last trimester where the back support is needed the most. I mostly wear it when I am going for my daily walks or doing exercise – that’s the only time when my back gets stressed the most.
