Prenatal Cradle Plus: Pregnancy comfort for mountain climbers? Probably not.

The Matterhorn in the Pennine Alps

The Prenatal Cradle Plus may look intimidating, but pregnant women tell us they couldn’t live without it. Over and over again. Erika, from Baba G & Me, considers the Prenatal Cradle Plus one of her two pregnancy “must-haves,” but her initial reaction to it was amusing:

When I first saw it, I thought it was a sort of mountain-climbing gear for pregnant chicks. But no, it’s something that you actually need (if you were as uncomfortable as I was walking around, that is).

Her reaction changed once she wore it:

 After I put this thing on, I was extremely mad at myself for not buying one sooner. I would’ve been so much happier. It makes you feel like you’re more compact—that’s the best way I can describe it. During the first few months I was wearing it, I’d almost forget I was pregnant. Near the end of my pregnancy, I was never without it.

What do all the straps do?
The straps on the Prenatal Cradle Plus by It's You Babe surround the tummyThe flannel backed, medical grade elastic bands are designed to surround and support the entire tummy. The lower womb support band provides the gentle lift and support necessary to improve circulation and relieve pelvic pressure. The side expander bands support the pregnant tummy and reduce back and forth sway. They also relieve side pressure while turning from side to side in bed at night. Shoulder straps that criss-cross in front simply hold all the other support bands in place. They’re not weight bearing so they don’t stress the shoulders.

Adjustable straps allow you to comfortably provide the support you needThe PC Plus has a detachable compression bridge that offers relief from painful vulvar pressure and varicose veins. This breathable bridge velcros to the support band in front for easy release when going to the bathroom.

Two adjustable straps on the back allow you to easily find a comfortable amount of compression. Slipping this on in the morning can provide tremendous relief throughout the day.

The Cradle portion of the PC Plus can be worn alone for gentle support of your tummy, adding the V2 Bridge only when you need the vulvar compression to ease swelling, painful vulvar varicosities, or the “feeling that everything is going to fall out the bottom.”

I am in my second pregnancy and the pain started very early on… after wearing the prenatal cradle plus, I can walk without the pain and it is 90% pain free. I am 5′ 5″ and I bought size M/L and it fits perfectly. I’m wearing it everyday. This is a must have item if you have the pain. I am very glad that I purchased it!!!! Super!!!!

The features of the Prenatal Cradle Plus by It’s You Babe make it an ideal maternity support for women experiencing multiple aches and pains associated with pregnancy. We won’t endorse Baba G’s mountain climbing fantasy, but if your healthcare professional tells you it’s okay to climb the Matterhorn, we’ll be happy to post your selfie planting a flag at the peak on this blog. 🙂

Moms-To-Be LOVE the Prenatal Cradle

Anatomy of a Prenatal CradleThe It’s You Babe Prenatal Cradle is designed to support your tummy as if you were cradling it with your hands. Soft, gentle lift and support without compression allows you to wear the garment all day long. Some women like to even wear the Prenatal Cradle to bed at night for support while tossing and turning from side to side.

Many women don’t realize the full support of the Prenatal Cradle until they have taken it off and the aches and pains return. This means the garment is working as designed!

We are often asked about the shoulder straps and why they are there. The shoulder straps simply hold the points of sewing in place and are not designed to pull down on your shoulders or lift up your tummy. The lift and support comes from all the other flannel backed elastic straps which also add support on the sides of your tummy. I like to call it ‘full surround support’. Everything put together will improve your posture, reduce ankle and leg swelling, enhance circulation and give you more energy to get through your day!

Busy mom finds the Prenatal Cradle offers tremendous support for her 9 pound babies!

“I have used the Prenatal Cradle by It’s You Babe for three out of my four pregnancies. I typically have large babies (over nine pounds) and the support that I get from the cradle is tremendous! The cradle takes the weight of the baby off my abdomen and eases the back pain. In my third trimester I definitely can tell the difference on the days I wear the cradle and the days I do not. I generally have so much less pain on the days I wear my cradle.” – Traci, MI

Busy mom carrying 4th child praises our Mini Cradle

After first pregnancies the muscles in our tummies don’t always return to normal.  As a result, subsequent pregnancies may take a greater toll on our already stretched out muscles.  Gently supporting the abdominal muscles during pregnancy provides the relief we need to stay active and keep up with those energetic little ones!

As a mom of three energetic boys, I am on the go and need extra support throughout the day. I appreciate the Mini Cradle in allowing my body to feel relieved as it takes pressure off as I go about my daily activities.  I would recommend the Mini Cradle to expecting mothers as a way to find support and comfort as you grow thru your pregnancy and deal with the extra weight your body becomes accustomed to.”  – Katie, MI

“I wish I had one for my other pregnancies”

I gave a Prenatal Cradle to my friend and hair dresser a few weeks ago.  Wasn’t even certain she was buying into the idea of wearing one of our products but this was her 3rd child and she was having a lot of back pain.

Well, I just ran into her at school yesterday when picking up the kids and she couldn’t stop talking about how glad she was that she has it!

I had an appoint with a chiropractor that I ended up cancelling because, after putting on the cradle, I have no more back pain.

YAY!  I was SO excited to hear all the great things she had to say.

Feels Good Immediately!

We love to hear from our dealers – you are the ones that work directly with the pregnant women we are here to help. One of our new dealers in Connecticut recently shared some comments that she often hears from the women she is fitting into our Prenatal Cradle:

So far, I’ve received very positive feedback from the patients that have received them. I usually have them try it on here and they say it feels good immediately!

“I noticed the difference right away!… when I take it off a little early at night I feel the aches returning instantly…”

One customer told us that we had the answer to her prayers…

I can’t tell you what a difference your ‘Cradle’ has made in my life. Truly, it was an answer to my prayers… It is perfect and such a relief for my many back and front aches, too! I have four boys and expecting my fifth in Nov. Even though I was only in my fifth month, I ached so badly down low that after about 4 P.M. every day I could no longer stand or be on my feet… I was daily wondering how will I make it until the end and still be able to care for my family?…Then a close friend…brought me one of your cradles and said, ‘try it!’ I noticed the difference right away!…when I take it off a little early at night I feel the aches returning instantly… what would I do without it?… the Dr. said after having several children that the muscle tones are gone and the middle months of pregnancy… Your product is SUPER!! S.B.
