How to use heat bags when pregnant
When using a heat bag during pregnancy remember that it mustn't be used in a way that increases your overall temperature, particularly in the first trimester. Don't use it directly on your abdominal area. However they are very useful for localised relief of muscular aches and pains.
Heat therapy works by opening up the blood vessels which increases blood flow. That means fresh blood with the nutrients and oxygen it brings, gets to the places it needs to be, easing pain and soreness in joints and muscles, tendons and ligaments.
Localised heat therapy is great, non-invasive way to find comfort in specific areas like back, hips, joints and muscles during your pregnancy.
When using a heat bags during pregnancy there are some basic guidelines that should be followed to keep you and baby safe.
- Don't use heat packs in a way that will raise your core temperature
- Avoid using heat packs on your abdominal area
- Don't apply heat for longer than 10-15 minutes
- Avoid applying a heat pack directly onto your skin, instead use it over clothing or with a towel or fabric in between your skin and the heat
- Don't use a heat pack while sleeping
