I am due in September, and am finding it very uncomfortable when I take my son out for walks. My back hurts and I have to "hold up" my belly. Does anyone have any experience with these support belts. Are they worth it?

Thanks

YES!YES!YES! I had bought one from Motherhood Maternity and I LOVE it. My belly was so heavy and the belt took the pressure off and held me up. It also supported my back very well. Those babies are heavy!

I bought a support belt from motherhood and i loved it.
Only once i hit about 30 weeks on, it was more of a pain to wear it because it would pick my girls up and push them up under my ribs, which was worse than the back pain.

I'm trying to sell mine :)

I actually used one while I was still working. It really seemed to take a lot of the pressure off my back and it provides needed support for your belly.
