How do I wear it?
The Prenatal Cradle is worn over the bra and under the panties so that it does not need to be adjusted during frequent trips to the bathroom.
How do I put it on?
Start by holding the Prenatal Cradle with the label facing up. Make sure the two bands are coming out of the top of the label. If not, turn the label around so that they are. Place your head under the label and through the center of the two bands with your hands and arms on either side of the two bands. Pull the 3-inch supportive band down into place under your tummy. Straighten the bands if they are twisted and position the Prenatal Cradle to where it is the most comfortable for you.
Can the Prenatal Cradle help my backache?
The Prenatal Cradle's orthotic action helps a pregnant mom to stand up straighter while decreasing lordosis. When back pain is caused by the forward weight of the growing uterus pulling on the back and creating tension, the Prenatal Cradle is a perfect solution to ease back pain. Women who have experienced previous injury to their back need to consult with their physicians before wearing any supportive device. The Prenatal Cradle's unique system of orthotic support is engineered below the shoulders and decreases lordosis while helping a pregnant woman to stand up straighter. The points of support are:
The sewn criss cross between the breasts (at the baby label)
The side expanders which pull the front bands apart to create the open abdomen
The torso bands which give lift to the front and to the back of the supportive band
The lower womb band which supports the pendulous abdomen around the hips and meets the other supportive bands in the back.
What if it bothers my bladder?
Unlike other supports, the Prenatal Cradle support band under the abdomen can be positioned higher on the abdomen so that it maintains effective support of the abdomen yet does not interfere with or irritate the bladder.
Will the Prenatal Cradle pull down on my shoulders?
No. The Prenatal Cradle is so comfortable that may women forget that they have it on. If you push down on the supportive band (as a growing uterus would increase in weight), you will feel no increase in tension at the shoulders. Uncomfortable tension on the shoulders is an indication that you may have the wrong size.
How can the Prenatal Cradle support without compression?
The Prenatal Cradle supports with no compression placed on the hips or lower back, thus allowing the hips to expand or relax naturally so that the body can sufficiently prepare for a normal labor and vaginal delivery.
Does the Prenatal Cradle reduce ankle swelling?
Testimonials from women who have worn the Prenatal Cradle substantiate that it is effective for reducing ankle swelling. The Prenatal Cradle lifts the weight of the uterus which lightens the pressure on veins coming from the legs and feet. This allows for better blood flow which can reduce swelling of the ankles, legs, and feet. Remember that there are other factors that may contribute to edema of the ankles (i.e. eating foods high in salt). With the Prenatal Cradle, there are no bands around the legs to slow down blood flow.
Will it help with my pain from hip separation or pubic symphysis?
Women who have encountered these problems have found the Prenatal Cradle to be very effective in reducing their pain due to the "compression free" way that the Prenatal Cradle actually lifts the weight of the growing baby from the pelvic cradle, keeping the extra weight from "bouncing" on the painful ligaments.
Will my insurance pay for this?
Some insurance companies are recognizing the Prenatal Cradle as a medically necessary item and are covering it. You may wish to check with your local pharmacy or call your insurance company to see if and how much your plan will cover and how to apply for reimbursement. If you are going to apply for insurance reimbursement, you will need a prescription from your doctor along with a copy of your sales receipt.
About the V2 Supporter
During pregnancy, vulvar varicosities can occur for many reasons. Increased weight of the enlarged uterus sometimes creates pressure on veins in the pelvic area and interferes with the flow of blood returning from the legs. Naturally higher levels of estrogen promote growth, while increased progesterone tends to relax the smooth muscles of the vein walls. The relaxed veins can become distended and "pop out" as vulvar varicosities. Wearing the V2 supporter before rising in the morning, helps prevent excessive swelling of the vulvar veins.
