"Going into my first pregnancy I had suffered sacroiliac joint, hip and lower disc pain for about five years. My condition was so severe I would have regular cortisone injections into my SIJ joints a few times a year, to relieve the inflammation and pain, not to mention the physio visits! I was very concerned as to how I would manage the pain throughout pregnancy as the weight of the baby increased and put more pressure on my pelvic joints and back. Many people had many theories as to how my back problems would hold up during pregnancy but around the 30 week mark I experienced very bad pelvic instability and lower back pain.
I already had a cupboard full of back support braces and pelvic belts etc, but had heard about SRC Pregnancy Shorts and thought why not give them a go? When they arrived I was a bit skeptical as they felt like they probably wouldn’t have enough support for me, but after persisting and wearing them for around 20 hours a day, and during the night, the results were instant. I absolutely loved them!
I felt fully supported standing for long periods at work, and I could easily wear them under my clothes without feeling bulky. They offered such wonderful relief around the pubic bone area. Not to mention they were comfortable and the fabric breathes, which for me was so important, being pregnant during the hot summer months. I look forward to getting into the Recovery Shorts now!"
