The Baby Belly Pelvic Support has been a lifesaver during my pregnancy. It provides much-needed support during daily necessities like household chores, walking the dog, and exercising: activities I had started to neglect due to back discomfort. I especially appreciate that it’s adjustable to where I need support – it easily conforms to the uniqueness of my body. Thank you Diane and her team for creating such a wonderful product for women!

During my first pregnancy with my daughter, I developed very debilitating SI Joint pain that started about the 7 month mark of my pregnancy. It almost prevented me from walking. I bought a belly support from a sports shop, but it didn’t give my back the compression it needed to be stable because the support straps only pulled to the front making my back pain no better and at times much worse. I stopped wearing it.
During my second pregnancy, I really wanted to avoid the back pain I had with my first pregnancy and that is when I started wearing Diane’s Baby Belly Pelvic Support. It has a nice contoured pad at the front with a sort of “crumple zone” that made wearing the belt while sitting more comfortable. For me, the best feature of the Baby Belly Pelvic Support is the ability to pull the side elastic straps to the back to give the SI joints some support and compression but, the straps also can be pulled to the front if that is where you need it. Having the adaptability to have the support where you want it, makes the belt super versatile as sometimes pain/problems change as time goes on. I could not have survived my second pregnancy without the Baby Belly Pelvic Support because second time around, I had another child that still wanted to be picked up and held. I started wearing it preventatively at 6 months to prevent my back form being a source of pain. It is a must for all pregnant women.
When Diane Lee fitted me with the Baby Belly Pelvic Support, the irritation I was having through my pelvis over the pubic symphysis and around my tailbone decreased. I felt like my belly was being gently lifted and my hips gently hugged. Thanks to this Belly Belt I was able to work and exercise comfortably until shortly before my delivery. I feel that the belt gave me the support I would not have been able to generate on my own through my deep core. I was able to end my day feeling great. Thanks Diane!
