For every woman, pregnancy is a beautiful period which is filled with hope and joy. In addition, it is also a very special time for their body, which must now care for two people at the same time. As pregnancy progresses and mobility is reduced, the legs may be affected with feelings of tension and heaviness. Tingling sensations and leg cramps at night are common complaints of pregnant women.
Due to hormonal changes in the body, the veins in the legs increase their capacity for blood by dilating more than usual. At the same time the elasticity of the vascular walls deteriorates. This interaction – all the more if you have an inherited disposition towards venous disorder, can affect the efficient operation of the venous leaflet valves which assist in the flow of blood from the legs to the heart. The legs can become swollen with the additional blood. The feeling of heavy legs is not just your imagination! With dilated veins and additional pressure within the venous system during pregnancy there can be a tendency to develop ‘spider veins’ or varicose veins. Sometimes these will prevail after pregnancy.
TXG Comfort Woman's graduated compression socks are created with the luxurious smooth and comfortable fabric TENCEL®, they can help to prevent the development of visible spider and varicose vein related problems during pregnancy whilst at the same time preventing your legs from swelling excessively. You will feel more energetic, comfortable and confident at the time when you should be looking forward to the challenges ahead. They are available in both an open toe and closed toe style.
It is important during pregnancy to maintain some level of activity that involves leg and calf muscle action to maintain healthy blood circulation. Walking helps a lot. But if walking becomes difficult to manage try rolling your feet to activate the ‘vein pump’ and stimulate the blood flow back to the heart. Alternately raise and lower your heels 15-20 times several times each day. Wearing TXG compression stockings or socks will greatly aid the effectiveness of the muscle action to circulate blood, whilst at the same time help avoiding spider or varicose veins.
" I'm pregnant and have been struggling with low blood pressure so I bought a pair of your compression socks to try.
I really love them! I don't get horrible puffy legs and fat ankles at the end of the day anymore :)
And they have been helping me feel less faint from my low blood pressure.
I also believe they've been helping me experience less RLS (Restless Leg Syndrome) - which has been a nightmare for me before I got the socks!!
Just wanted to say I'm really happy with the socks and your personal and friendly customer service style. Thanks!"

"I recently wore TXG compression socks while travelling and was amazed at how comfortable they were. I have worn other types of compression socks in the past and the TXG socks were far more comfortable than the others.
I am currently pregnant so I will start wearing the socks daily in the next couple of months until the end of my pregnancy to prevent varicose veins, thanks again."

"My socks arrived this morning and I just wanted to say thanks again for the great service.
I also love all the extra little touches included. Would it be at all possible to send me a few business cards?
I would like to give some to my midwife so she can give them out to other clients having issues with their legs.
