How does a belly belt help?

Now, to find out which option should suit your purpose best, it is necessary to understand the uses you may put your belly band into. Be it to keep your baby bump in shape during the initial days of its appearance (so you can fit into your pre-pregnancy clothes for a few weeks longer), or to provide the much needed support with late pregnancy problems like SPD, SI joint, or tailbone pain, a maternity support belt goes a long way with it all.
