Pregnancy Cramps? – Take a new look at CrampEase
If you feel cramps in your abdomen (the area around your stomach), don’t panic right away. Very occasionally, cramping can be an emergency signal that says you need medical attention, but far more common, cramping is nothing more than a gentle reminder to take it easy.
How it works
The muscles and ligaments that support your uterus are being pulled and stretched in all directions during pregnancy. This can cause occasional cramping. The pain might be mild or sharp. It might be particularly noticeable when you make a quick move, get up out of a chair, cough, or sneeze. This is nothing to worry about. Some women get cramps when they exercise and put additional stress on muscles and ligaments that are already strained. If you feel cramps while exercising, listen to your body. Stop and rest. This is not the time to work through pain.

The good news is that the CrampEase range of products from Penpharm is proven safe for use during your pregnancy to alleviate and bring relief from cramping. Used under the supervision of your doctor or healthcare professional, of course, CrampEase can take care of your cramps, while you take care of your happy, healthy pregnancy.
