Start thinking about getting covered.
Having a baby comes with expenses…some are fundamental, some are for the fun of it, and some you’ll end up thinking are unnecessary. Save money where you can, especially on items that improve your life. That’s exactly what these insurance covered medical essentials do.
What will insurance Cover?
Pumping is great for when you’re away from your baby, others are helping with feeding, baby has a hard time latching, you don’t want to breastfeed, and emergency situations. Breast pumps keep your milk supply up and help in stopping production when it’s time. Your pump could cost you anywhere between $50 and $400, depending on the style you get. Fortunately, your insurance could cover the cost of your pump!
Your breast milk is basically liquid gold. Storing it properly is important for feeding your baby and feeling prepared, just in case. Believe it or not, your insurance can assist you with getting milk bags!
No, we’re not talking about a girdle or waist trainer or anything marketed for you to “bounce back”. We’re talking about pelvic support that centers around your health and protection. Supporting your pelvis is suggested for both pregnancy and postpartum. Bracing can relieve pressure, pain, and swelling, stabilize your movements, protect you from injury, help with prolapse and incontinence, and aid in gaining pelvic strength back. Your pelvic floor supports functions all over your body, taking care of it will help with your health far into the future.
C-section wounds need to be protected and cared for. Strips made specifically to reduce pain, swelling, itching, and scarring while cushioning and protecting from outside irritants are covered by insurance. Good C-section strips can be put on over stitches, worn day and night and even in the shower. We support and celebrate what bodies look like after creating life but if you want, the sooner you start wearing C-section strips, the less visible your scar might be.
Pregnancy throws off the circulation in your feet and legs. Compression stockings increase blood flow, help prevent blood clots and varicose veins, reduce swelling, and make it easier to be on your feet. Wear compression stockings while you’re active, in the morning before swelling starts, or any time you feel discomfort.
