Promising review: “This belt is a godsend. I cannot function without it. I’m a petite person and I’m carrying really low. As the baby has gotten bigger, I’m experiencing more pressure. If I didn’t have this belt, I wouldn’t be able to walk around for more than a couple of minutes. I definitely recommend this for anyone experiencing back pain, abdominal pain/pressure, or pelvic discomfort from pregnancy. It really helps lifts the belly and takes the pressure off.” RB
