Unique Methods To Ease Pregnancy Pains
Whether you’re on your first baby or your third baby, there’s no avoiding the aches and pains of a long pregnancy. If you’re tired of the pain during pregnancy and want to avoid feeling aches after labor, there are steps you can take to relieve some of the discomforts so you can get some dang sleep at night.
Try out some of these unique methods to ease pregnancy pains that you may not have considered, and they might save you from some of the most common pregnancy woes. Before trying out any of these methods, be sure to ask your doctor if it’s safe to do so!
Methods To Ease Pregnancy Pains
Working out with a pregnant belly may sound like a hard pill to swallow, but it can make you feel better when you do the right workouts. Swimming is a popular choice for pregnant moms since being in the water takes away gravity, if only for a short while.
Most of the pain caused by pregnancy is caused by the additional force gravity has on your body and posture due to your sudden weight gain. Swimming provides a temporary release from gravity and can help you relax.
See a Chiropractor
A chiropractor with the right certifications can do wonders for your pelvic alignment. Not only will this help you with your pregnancy pains, but it’ll also naturally assist with labor when you’re ready for it. Post-labor, that same chiropractor can work on aligning your pelvis to where it’s supposed to be to avoid the dreaded sudden sharp pains of “lightning crotch.” Look for chiropractors with Webster Certification for trustworthy treatment of both your pain and your baby.
Another unique method to ease pregnancy pains that a chiropractor can utilize is kinesiology taping. You know that colorful tape that scantily clad beach volleyball players show off during their games? You can use that same tape on your hot mom bod for some stellar pain relief—both in your abdomen and your back. Don’t try to apply it on your own though! Have the professional apply the tape for the biggest pain relief impact.
Get a New Pair of Shoes
You know you need to get maternity clothing once you can’t fit into your regular clothes—the same goes for your feet too! Wearing the wrong shoes will only enhance the swelling of your feet and the back pain that comes from improper support, just like when you’re not pregnant.
Look for a new pair of shoes that give you proper support when you walk. You may even want to look for extra-wide shoes to account for natural foot swelling. Shoe shopping? No need to tell me twice!
