Long before baby comes - the backache will arrive. That's why so many retailers recommend the Leading Lady Maternity Belt. Developed with the help of medical professionals - the Maternity Belt is biomechanically designed to lift and support the abdomen without compression. The belt has been tested and proven to be safe and effective in eliminating or significantly reducing lower back ache commonly associated with pregnancy. Since every woman carries her baby differently - a size smaller or larger than suggested may work best for you.
