We recommend this product to any pregnant women experiencing minor varicose veins or fluid retention in their legs. These stockings will boost overall circulation so may also assist minor vulvar varicose veins as well as improving general leg fatigue. This level of compression is also beneficial for prevention against the development or worsening of minor veins. If you have prominent varicose veins, we would recommend the Firm compression stockings.
Gabrialla Maternity Compression Stockings Overview:
These Sheer Gabrialla maternity compression stockings offer 18-20mmHg of graduated compression (medium compression) which is firmest at the ankle and then gradually decreases up the leg.
Varicose veins are gnarled, enlarged veins which appear close to the skin’s surface. Any vein has the potential to become varicose, but they most commonly occur in the legs and feet. For a lot of people, varicose and/or spider veins are simply a cosmetic concern. However, for other people, varicose veins can result in aching pain and discomfort. In some instances, the condition can lead to more serious problems. Varicose veins may also signal a higher risk of other disorders of the circulatory system.
The Gabrialla maternity compression stockings are most suited to people who are currently pregnant or have recently given birth, are standing or working on their feet for long periods of time, as well as those who experience tiredness, aching, and swelling of the lower legs.
