The pillowcase is removable and can be machine-washed at 30˚C. and tumble dried on a delicate low temperature cycle. It can also be ironed, however remember to set the iron to a low temperature.
How to use your pregnancy belly band
Place it around the lower part of your abdomen, at suprapubic level, adjusting it as your bump grows. You should feel comfortable, supported, and unrestricted. It’s vital you’re completely comfortable when using the pregnancy support belt and don’t experience any discomfort whatsoever.
The pregnancy belt should fit evenly around your body, supporting your bump from bottom to top. It can be used over or underneath clothing, but we advise wearing a layer of cotton fabric (e.g., underwear) between your skin and the belly band.
During which month of pregnancy can I start to use my Belly Band?
The pregnancy band can be worn when your bump starts to show and becomes bigger and heavier. This usually happens around the second trimester of pregnancy and certainly during the last 3 months of your pregnancy.
How many hours a day can I use it for?
You should use your bump band throughout the day and never at night or when lying or sitting down. It’s ideal for when you are actively on your feet, walking or whenever you’re standing for longer periods of time without moving your lower limbs.
There’s no specific guideline regarding timing; it depends entirely on each woman's health and level of daily activity. Generally speaking, half a day or whenever a mum-to-be is on her feet. Please remember during pregnancy it’s important to alternate walking with rest (lying down).
How can you ensure that using your belly band does not substitute your abdominal muscles?
When expecting, your abdominal muscles will physiologically stretch in order to make room for your expanding womb. The pregnancy band will help this and support the gradual changes occurring inside your body.
Remember it’s important not to use belly bands or maternity belts postpartum, as in the period immediately after the birth they will act as a replacement for your abdominal muscles, thus, not facilitating the recovery of your pelvic floor muscles.
Are there any abdominal exercises I can do?
Throughout pregnancy, it’s important to do physical activity that engages the full body, especially stretching, and to avoid doing specific abdominal strengthening exercises.
Are there any counter-indications of using a belly band?
There are no counter-indications other than positioning the band incorrectly, which can consequently cause inward pressure and also put pressure on pelvic floor muscles.
Use of a bump band when sitting or lying down or when sleeping at night is not recommended.
If you suffer from any health conditions or disorders, you should always consult your doctor or midwife prior to use.
Are there different sizes available?
Our Belly Band is available in one size.
Its velcro fastener is specially designed to fit all shapes and sizes perfectly and can also be adjusted to adapt to your bump as it grows.
The Belly Band also comes with an extra piece, allowing the band to be lengthened to fit different sizes. This extra piece can be attached to the main band as required.
Can Koala Belly Band also be used postpartum?
Koala Belly Band is a band designed specifically for pregnancy to support the belly.
It is not recommended postpartum, because it is important that the abdominal muscles resume its natural tone to return to the conditions before pregnancy.
