Being Pregnant And Needing A Stairlift

Being pregnant and needing a stairlift is no laughing matter. Towards the end of the 9 month period, women can begin to feel a lot of discomfort in their hip joints as they loosen up in preparation for labour. It is not uncommon to see a stairlift in a doctor's surgery, because quite often pregnant women don't want to walk up the stairs either because it is too painful, or because they can't properly balance themselves and fear that they will fall over and down the stairs if they lose balance. This is why a lot of women insist on their partners attending even the most routine of check-ups, in case they need to climb a flight of stairs without assistance.

Oakland Stairlifts is a stairlift supplier that offers a wide range of stairlifts to their customers. Among these stairlifts are a range of brands, all of which are designed to cope with heavy weights. This means that pregnant women don't need to be afraid that they will break a stairlift, because they are made for people heavier than them. Having a stairlift in your home can be a large commitment, especially if the stairlift is being bought out completely, brand new. Reconditioned stairlifts are slightly cheaper than brand new ones, but new families don't want to be paying for a stairlift when expecting a baby very soon.

Hiring a stairlift for the last couple of months of pregnancy is a great decision that many people make. In rare cases a woman's hips can dislocate completely in preparation for labour. This is incredibly painful and means that the woman has to be in a wheelchair for the remainder of their pregnancy. By hiring a stairlift when this happens, a family can cope with this when it happens, and if necessary they can keep the stairlift whilst the mother recovers from the last few months of dislocated hips, all with a stairlift aftercare service.
