Varicose Veins

Pregnancy Resources

The weight of the uterus and growing baby may compress and slow blood flow from the lower body. This may result in bulging veins in the legs or perineum. Support hose, elevating your legs, exercising regularly, and avoiding crossing your legs can help prevent discomfort. Notify your nurse if a vein becomes suddenly tender or more swollen.
