Placement of the Brace:

The first thing you want to do is find the center of the belt, usually indicated on the belt in some way. Place this line along the middle of your lower back or the sacrum. This focuses the belt to help support your SI joint. On the front part of the belt, make sure the belt is underneath your belly. If you're pregnant, you're going to glide the belt along underneath your belly and place it right along your pubic bone.


Minor Adjustments:

You can tighten the belt further by grabbing the two pieces of Velcro. When you tighten the belt, you want to engage your core. You will take a big inhale and then exhale. As you exhale, you're going to place the Velcro, providing that additional support you need. To take off the belt you want to exhale while doing that as well. Keep in mind to engage your core when you take the belt off. Once it is off, you can relax your core.


Postpartum Aid:

It is also very helpful postpartum. If you want to get outside and move, but you're having too much of that low back pain or pubic bone pain, this will help provide that additional little bit of support as your body recovers.


We hope this helps! Please refer back to the video for a more in-depth look at wearing the brace. Thank you for allowing us to be a part of your health journey.
