Wearing Compression Socks During Pregnancy

To bring a new life into this world is a great achievement that will bring you much
joy. However, pregnancy is challenging. Swelling legs and varicose veins are

common issues for pregnant women. Wearing Dr. Segal’s Compression Socks while pregnant will reduce leg pain, swelling, and varicose veins.

Pregnancy & Swelling 


Pregnancy can be painful and uncomfortable on your legs. This is largely due to
blocked circulation caused by prevalent changes in one’s body. This reduced leg
circulation and increased pressure can cause leg swelling, something that is increased when accompanied by long periods of sitting or standing. Leg swelling can cause a great amount of leg pain, which makes it painful and uncomfortable to walk. Wearing Dr. Segal’s Compression Socks will alleviate your leg pain, allowing you to continue your day in comfort.

Pregnancy & Risk for Varicose Venis & DVT's

Also common during pregnancy are varicose veins, spider veins and dvts (deep vein thrombosis),  especially in women who are on their second or third pregnancy. You will be most at risk of varicose veins or leg health problems during pregnancy if you have a family history of varicose veins or have had a venous condition prior to pregnancy. Dr. Segal’s Compression Socks help blood move from the lower legs back up to the heart, reducing leg swelling, the prevalence of varicose veins and the risk of dvt's.  

Choosing the Right Compression for Pregnancy

Choosing which compression sock is right for you should be discussed with your physician. There are varying degrees of compression levels in compression socks. Women commonly use 15-20mmHg compression socks during their first and second trimesters. Higher degrees of compression are often used when entering the third trimester of a pregnancy.
