Some of the negative aspects of pregnancy are side effects such as restless leg syndrome, varicose veins, and leg swelling. These compression socks for pregnancy can help to reduce some of these common ailments and provide soon to be mothers with much needed relief and comfort.

The open toe design of these maternity stockings for leg swelling provide a little more freedom and flexibility of movement resulting in a comfortable fit. This comfort, coupled with the benefits of graduated compression socks make these a natural choice for use during pregnancy. Another side effect is varicose veins and they are caused during the pregnancy because of the additional weight and pressure on the leg veins. Improved blood flow and circulation can help reduce the appearance of varicose veins.

These socks have a graduated compression which means that the pressure is greatest at the ankle and gradually decreases  as the sock moves up the leg. This is kind of like a manual elevator for the blood and increases flow and circulation. This increased blood flow and circulation allows oxygen and nutrients to travel more efficiently and be distributed where needed. This process helps to alleviate leg fatigue and prevent swelling in the legs and feet.

Compression socks provide health benefits during pregnancy but can also be worn anytime to achieve these benefits. Swelling and tired achy legs can be caused by a number of reasons. If you have a job that keeps you on your feet for hours like nursing or production work, or even sitting for long periods of time, you can benefit from wearing compression socks. They are very popular with travelers that are forced to sit or not move for hours at a time. They keep the blood flowing during these inactive periods. There is a reason that athletes have been using compression products for years, they work. They can help muscles recover quickly and to prevent injury. 

Why not give your legs and feet a little helping hand by wearing some compression socks?
