Varicose veins during pregnancy, pregnancy and childbirth

When my mother was pregnant, she had strong varicose veins. I think it is not necessary to explain that during pregnancy any chronic diseases progress. Varicose veins are no exception.

Mom had a hereditary predisposition to the development of varicose veins, plus a sedentary lifestyle and overweight also made themselves felt.

In the long term, her veins became so dilated that they caught the eye of others. All nine months she was observed by a phlebologist.

During the entire pregnancy, the mother had heard plenty of eerie stories about the complications of varicose veins, the so-called thrombophlebitis, when at times there could be a threat to the life of the mother and the fetus.

Before pregnancy, I was actively involved in sports. She played volleyball, kickboxing and pilates. Having become pregnant, I began to worry that I would also have varicose veins, like my mother’s.

Still, with increasing gestational age, the load on the veins increases, because the growth of the uterus squeezes the veins in the small pelvis, and prevents the outflow of blood from the lower extremities.

I talked with my doctor and began to perform simple exercises that improved blood flow in the veins.

In addition to performing simple exercises, I also began to use medical compression knitwear as a preventive measure for the occurrence of varicose veins.

I wore a variety of compression products: stockings, tights, stockings. I wore this kind of compression knit both during pregnancy and in the postpartum period for about 8 weeks.

By the way, in terms of quality, it did not differ from simple tights and stockings, so I felt myself in such knitwear just wonderful.

In addition to these measures, I observed simple rules against varicose veins. First, when she came home after work, she immediately lay down on the bed and put a cushion under her feet for about 15-20 minutes.

Secondly, I tried to do some of the household chores while sitting, for example, I stroked my laundry in that position.

All these measures allowed me to avoid varicose veins during pregnancy, which I advise you.
