Our Why: The Mission Behind This Pelvic Support Belt
Very few pelvic support belts for women with a prolapsed uterus, vulvar varicose veins, pubic symphysis, dropped bladder, etc. exist on the market today. And the products that do exist lack in comfort and fit. While these are often not easy conditions to discuss, they are much more common than you might think! Pelvic organ prolapse affects one in five women in the United States. For these reasons, we have made it our mission to create a supportive, effective, and comfortable pelvic brace.
After months of research, development, and testing, we are beyond excited to introduce a limited quantity of our brand new Pelvic Pro. These prolapsed uterus support braces were created in-house, by our dedicated Product Development team.
How Does the Prolapsed Uterus Girdle Work?
Similar to the V-Brace by Fembrace or V2 Supporter, our pelvic truss undergarment was created to relieve aches and pains associated with pelvic floor dysfunction through innovative compression therapy. Designed to keep you active and on the go, the Pelvic Pro helps alleviate the feeling that everything is going to fall out the bottom,which can occur for several reasons.
The V shape discreetly provides customizable compression to alleviate pressure, discomfort and swelling from conditions including:
- Vulvar varicosities (varicose veins)
- Pubic swelling
- Perineal edema
- Organ prolapse of bladder, uterus, cervix, or womb
- Inguinal hernia
- Genital lymphedema
- SPD (symphysis pubis dysfunction)
- Pelvic bone pain
Worn before rising in the morning, compression provided by the Pelvic Pro helps reduce varicose veins and lymphedema by applying targeted pressure to reduce or restrict engorgement of the veins in the pubic region. It also promotes blood flow and redistributes fluid buildup to reduce swelling and pain. And by supporting the pelvic floor, this prenatal cradle tightly holds your uterus and bladder in the proper anatomical position, giving you the confidence to get back to life!
What is Uterine Prolapse?
Uterine, vaginal, or cervical prolapse occurs when pelvic floor muscles become too weak to support the uterus, causing it to slip down or fall out of the vagina.
Who Gets Pelvic Organ Prolapse?
Pelvic organ prolapse occurs more frequently in older women, especially white and Hispanic ladies. Younger females or girls of other racial/ethnic groups are statistically less likely to experience prolapse.
What Causes a Prolapsed Uterus?
Womb or uterine prolapse often happens to women during pregnancy but other risk factors include childbirth delivery, being overweight, old age, chronic coughing, constipation or straining during bowel movements, and repeated heavy lifting. A pregnancy belly band for prolapsed uterus support can help alleviate symptoms.
Vaginal Prolapse Symptoms
Signs and symptoms of prolapse and/or pelvic floor dysfunction (vary depending on the degree) but typically include:
- Seeing a bulge or bump coming out of the vagina
- Feeling something coming out of the vagina
- A feeling of pressure, pain, aching, or fullness in the pelvis or groin, especially during sex or physical activity
- Pelvic pressure that gets worse with standing or coughing or as the day goes on
- Leaking urine (incontinence) or problems having a bowel movement
- Problems inserting tampons
- Moderate to severe prolapse may cause vaginal bleeding

Great for Pregnancy and Postpartum
For most vulvar-related conditions and pelvic floor support before or after the birth of a baby, midwives, doctors, and nurses recommend this prenatal cradle to women for maternity compression therapy.
Vulvar varicosities are a result of an increase in blood volume while pregnant (blood volume increases by almost 50% by the third trimester), combined with naturally higher levels of estrogen and progesterone. These factors, among other things, can cause your veins to become distended and pop out as vulvar varicose veins.
