I'm pregnant and have always been fairly athletic, I'm pretty sure my abs are strong enough to carry a baby, why would I need the Maternity FITsplint?
When a mom runs while pregnant (4+ months), there is increased belly motion. Stabilizing this motion can help reduce the stress on the connective tissue, bladder and back. Wearing a support will reduce the stress loads and provide a smoother gait. The FITsplint is also used to by physical therapists to help with sciatic pain, pelvic girdle pain and back pain.
