Can anyone recommend a tummy support belt?

Hi all

I am 24 weeks and I have been getting some pain in my tummy when walking, mainly on my right hand side, a bit like a stitch. We are off to Eurodisney on Sunday for 5 days and the midwife said a tummy support belt might help but there are lots of different types out there.

Can anyone recommend one?

I used my stretchy wrap, which helped. Just had a look at YouTube videos for tying it on. They are about £20 for a cheap one, so not sure how they compare price wise to support belts.

It was great when LO arrived too.

Contact your physio department at your local hospital, they should be able to give you one for free. I am getting one hopefully next week due to PGP.

I got one from nhs physio but still had to pay £5 for it.

The nexcare one us the best in my opinion. It's a bump and lower back support. A bit pricey but I sold mine on Gumtree easily.

I have one from the below which is great but you may not get it in time, a quick alternative would be getting a next day delivery from amazon for an tubi-grip, which I have also used. Search for easi-grip in sizes J,K,L as these are trunk size (I'm a size 18 and used the L).

I too have a nexcare one. Wasn't the cheapest, and wasn't the nicest looking (I so wish it was black not flesh coloured), but my goodness does it help when you need it. Well worth it IMHO.

Hi, we're off for half term too and I'll be 30 weeks with DC3.
Tubigrips are the only things that help me along with heat pads in the evening.
Be sure to take your maternity notes as city hall will give you an easy access card which will make queuing a lot easier.

Whatabout that's interesting. I was given one for free when pregnant with my first two DC, will come back on to let you know if it's free this time as well. I'm in Scotland. No one said anything about having to pay when I was speaking to the midwife last week!

Just got the jojo support belt and what a difference already!

Whatabout I've just had my physio appointment today and got issued with a support belt free of charge (NHS). It was also like this when I got the support belt over five years ago with my second pregnancy. Maybe it's just NHS Scotland??
