Stairlifts For Pregnancy

Among the many reasons for requiring a stairlift, pregnancy doesn't often come up. This is a big surprise as there are a huge number of pregnant women around the world that could benefit from having a stairlift in their home when they start to become heavily pregnant towards the end of their 9 month journey. Pregnant women can find it incredibly hard to do anything when nearing the end of their pregnancy because they have gained a lot of weight, and in all fairness have another person in them that they need to be carrying around.

Getting up the stairs at the end of your pregnancy can be a huge challenge. The main reason for this is that pregnant women need to lean quite far back in order to balance the extra weight they are carrying in front of them. This can be dangerous when climbing the stairs because they could lose their balance and fall backwards down the flight of stairs they have just ascended. It is not uncommon for doctor's surgeries to have stairlifts to accommodate pregnant women if there is no lift for them to use. To begin with women often find the idea of using the stairlift absurd, however when nearing the end of their pregnancy they begin to see how helpful a stairlift really is to them.

Having a stairlift at home for the period of a pregnancy can be slightly extreme. Many women do find however, that towards the end of their 9 months, as their hip joints loosen up for labour, that they have incredibly sore joints. This is normal, but it can stop women from using the stairs and generally going out because they find it too painful.
