We have many testimonials, from both professionals caring for mums and those using the Babybellyband Support System.See below
I am currently 33 weeks pregnant. I’ve only had the support for a couple of days but it has already made a tremendous difference to the quality of my life. Prior to having the band and support straps I was really struggling with intimate swelling and finding it impossible to get comfortable sitting or standing. Moving about also a painful experience. I started maternity leave earlier than I’d originally planned as it was getting unmanageable. I was dreading spending the remainder of my pregnancy immobile and in such discomfort.
In desperation I went to the GP and was diagnosed with vulvar varicoses. With research I stumbled upon the bellyband and groin support and with Bev’s reassurance and advice took the plunge and purchased it.
It arrived the next day and when I put it on I felt immediate relief.
With the groin support I have been able to do all my normal daily activities again. I still need to have rest periods but whereas by the end of the day I was collapsed on the sofa in agony I now can sit and enjoy a cup of tea and watch a bit of telly to unwind! Infact this morning I had enough energy to want to go to the gym for a bit to do some gentle exercises, something I’ve been really missing. I’m now really looking forward to the next few weeks of maternity leave before baby comes since the bellyband and groin support have given me back my independence so I am physically able to make the most of the time to get bit and pieces prepared.
I spoke with my GP about this support and she had never heard of such a thing but said that physiologically it makes sense since you would treat varicose veins in the legs with compression stockings. The compression helps hugely and the system is completely adjustable and customisable to your needs for a perfect fit. It doesn’t look that attractive but it’s actually pretty comfortable to wear considering. Also I’ve worn it under a pair of maternity leggings and it’s barely noticeable.
I cannot thank Bev enough for her help and would recommend anyone with dreaded vulvar varicoses to spend the money. It has been the single most worthwhile purchase of my pregnancy to date.
Our latest review for Babybellyband, thank you Rebecca from Bristol
“The groin compression belts are amazing for my vulvar varicose veins during pregnancy, without them it is so painful to walk around, but they instantly helped to relieve the pressure and I can walk around a lot more without the pain, you can move the straps which is brilliant to bits which need the most pressure. Also very soft and comfortable. Bev was very helpful and I received the next day – highly recommended, nothing else like this in the UK available.”

“I already recommend your product to women, it appears to be far superior to the products we supply and give. The lead time on a physio appointment it’s great to have a quality product specifically designed for obstetric use to signpost women to.
Keep up the good work, I’m more than happy to be contacted regarding any future products”

“I just wanted to thank you so much for my Babybellyband and groin bands… it’s been amazing at helping the pain associated with my round ligament varicosities in pregnancy- I can be on my feet all day now without a problem, which has been a Godsend with also having a toddler to run around after!”
Babybellyband received this super personal recommendation from Dr Tara Hendley A GP in Ireland
Dr Tara Hendley “I developed an inguinal hernia at 24 weeks Gestation. For a week or two I was plagued with pain and a horrible dragging sensation until I ordered the Babybellyband with groin support. It gave me the freedom to continue my daily activities and continue working in my job. I am pain free with the band on which is a miracle! I couldn’t recommend this product enough”
