Cotton Maternity Socks designed to help relieve tired, achy legs

Did you know that pregnancy plays a role in the development of varicose veins? In fact, 30 percent of women pregnant for the first time and 55 percent of women who have had two or more full-term pregnancies develop varicose veins, according to a report by Swiss Medical Weekly.

SIGVARIS, the global leader in medical compression therapy, is pleased to announce the launch of Cotton Maternity Socks, graduated compression socks designed to help relieve tired, achy legs during pregnancy as well as help decrease the chance of developing spider and varicose veins.

For many women, varicose veins often appear for the first time during pregnancy as a direct result of an increase in blood volume, an increase in pressure from the fetal head and a rise in hormone levels. Women who take time to “baby their legs” during pregnancy by wearing maternity compression socks will help reduce their chances of developing vein disease.

Along with the launch of this new product, SIGVARIS created www.babyyourlegs.com, an educational resource for expecting mothers to educate themselves about keeping their legs healthy during pregnancy and beyond.

“I meet many women around the country every year that have never heard of compression therapy and are unaware of the steps they should take to keep their legs healthy during pregnancy,” says Judith Brannan, SIGVARIS Medical Affairs & Education Manager. “I believe BabyYourLegs.com is going to be a valuable resource for women to learn about leg health during pregnancy as well as educate other moms-to-be.”
