SRC Pregnancy Leggings: Supported, stable and safe

 Mum  Comments Off on SRC Pregnancy Leggings: Supported, stable and safe
Sep 112015
 

After carrying four babies (including twins!) I know all about the toll pregnancy takes on your back, hips and pelvis. During pregnancy your body has a lot of extra weight to carry and for me, like for many mothers, pain and discomfort has been part of every pregnancy journey; it’s definitely not all smooth sailing. What a blessing the adorable babies make you forget about all the tears and struggles or I would have stopped after the twins!

With a home full of young children to chase after, a household to care for, school runs to do and specialist appointments to attend my obstetrician warned me that this time around pregnancy would be even harder on my body. I expected the pain to kick in early but was very determined to not let it ruin my joy or keep me housebound, which is how I stumbled upon SRC Health:

SRC

The SRC Pregnancy range is designed for expecting mothers and consists of Pregnancy Leggings (RRP $189.95) and Pregnancy Shorts (RRP $199.95), available in neutral black and size XXS to XXL. Both products are ARTG listed and recommended by health care professionals to provide support and relieve pain in your back, pelvis and hips during pregnancy. Using specifically designed anatomical panels the shorts/leggings offer consistent gentle medical grade compression for these well-known problem areas.

SRC Pregnancy LeggingsAs the majority of this pregnancy would fall in winter I decided on the full-length SRC Pregnancy Leggings for extra warmth and comfort. I first started wearing the leggings at around 24 weeks of pregnancy, some days matched with a dress/tunic and boots and other days with a cosy hoodie and nice sneakers. On days that I did not wear the leggings out, I would quickly change into them when I got home so I could still benefit from the extra support for some time of the day and even night. In my opinion the longer/more often you wear them the bigger the relief.

You may find that the leggings are a little tricky/tight to get on (especially near the end of your pregnancy when there is a big baby bump in the way) but this medical grade compression is essentially what will give you that much needed support so it is worth the wrestle and once they are on you will feel fabulous.

SRC Pregnancy Leggings

I am currently 36 weeks pregnant so the end is in sight and I cannot begin to explain what a difference the SRC Pregnancy Leggings have made for me. I was hesitant at first but hopeful and I can confidently say that this pregnancy has been my most comfortable yet! Even my obstetrician has been amazed at how well I have carried this pregnancy and how much less pain I have experienced. The extra support and stability for my pelvis and hips has been very noticeable and reassuring and not once (whilst wearing the leggings) have I felt that dreaded feeling of my hips giving way, my pelvis becoming unreliable or not being able to move anymore.

Getting a good night sleep has also proven to be a lot easier when your pelvic area is secure and you can comfortably move and roll over without being in pain. My only regret is that I did not give SRC a go during my precious pregnancies, they are absolutely worth every cent. In fact, SRC is so confident you will love your SRC product that they back it up with a 100% Money Back Guarantee (conditions apply), now that’s great peace of mind!

SRC Recovery ShortsAfter experiencing the relief and support from the SRC Pregnancy Leggings I have high hopes for the SRC Recovery Shorts for post-natal recovery. As I suffer from severe diastase recti, better known as tummy muscle separation (oh the joy of twin pregnancies!), I am afraid I have a long way to go but that’s a different story and one I will deal with when the time comes. I look forward to sharing my progress with you as I recover and (hopefully) improve so stay tuned.

Handy tip:
If you have private health insurance you may want to check with your insurer before making a purchase from SRC Health. Many private health insurers in Australia will provide a Health Fund Rebate to customers who purchase an SRC product as they are considered a medical compression garment, designed to aid with the recovery and health of expectant and new mothers. You could save yourself some welcome dollars to spend on gorgeous baby goods!

Havoc Denim – Spring/Summer 2013

If you’re afraid to stand out from the crowd now is the time to click away. Australian fashion label Havoc Denim loves to stir things up a little with funky designs, eye catching prints and fresh new colours that pop, created for street wise kids that like to swim upstream and are not afraid to show their individual style.

Havoc Denim Summer

Havoc Denim Spring/Summer 2013

Havoc Denim designer Linstel is always one of the first to spot new trends on the streets of the big fashion capitals and uses them to create a range of kids clothing for hip Aussie kids. Fashion savvy mums will know by now that you have to be quick when new season stock arrives as it sells out in the blink of an eye, this Summer’s neon styles were hugely popular and many stockists sold out in flash. But don’t worry, there is still plenty of colour left in the Havoc Denim Online Store.

Bahamas Spot ShortsSo if you are mum of girls neon is definitely the way to go this season, other trends include florals and polkadots (my favourite). Havoc Denim has got all the hypes covered with ten different styles of jeans, shorts and skirts in a range of stylish colours and prints. The current range caters for ages 2 all the way up to size 14 and if you need a bit of help with your sizes there is a handy size chart available online.

Marseille JeansOur kids have been wearing Havoc Denim for a few years now and the jeans have proven to be extremely hard wearing. Even with all the climbing, running, sliding and jumping they do I am yet to experience a broken zip or hole in the knee, something that can’t be said of many other brands they own. One of my most favourite jeans for this season are the Marseille Skinny Jeans ($59.95, pink and mint), a beautiful fitted style with funky back pockets.

However first prize goes to these Costa Rica Skinny Jeans ($59.95), I bought them to take on our trip to Europe next year but miss 5 couldn’t wait that long and wanted to wear them anyway (even if they’re a bit too big still). The colourful floral print looks amazing and all these pants need is a plain top or singlet, so easy!

The hot weather has most definitely arrived here in South Australia with a ‘lovely’ 43 degrees being expected today. I admit I don’t enjoy walking the kids to kindy in the rain but to be honest this sweaty weather is even worse. Time to get out the singlets and some hip Havoc Denim shorts so the kids can stay cool, both in temperature and style.

Just like his sisters my son loves a burst of colour and is not afraid to stand out from the crowd, a real Havoc Denim kid for sure. This summer he is sporting the awesome Hudson Skater shorts ($49.95, size 2-14) in this stunning aquamarine colour, how funky is the thick stitching? This style is longer in length so you can be sure it gets the tick of approval from older boys too, we all know they can be a little fussy sometimes.

Because I have boy/girl twins I don’t often get to dress them in the same clothes so when I saw these cute Soho shorts ($49.95, size 2-14) I knew they would be perfect for my girl twin, similar but not the same as her brother’s. They are similar in design and length to the Hudson boys shorts but with some gorgeous girly details too like sparkly diamante studs and of course the sweet colours (lemon and hot pink).

For those girls who love their shorts a little shorter there are the Miami and Hampton styles to choose from. I like the relaxed cut and traditional blue denim of the Hampton shorts ($49.95, size 2-14), such a simple yet gorgeous design and a real staple for the summer wardrobe. Being a more loose fit around the legs they are perfect for active girls and they will keep those little legs cool and breezy.
