I often hear business owners say, “I would love to take advantage of social media, but I just don’t know where to start!” Most people understand that social media is a force to be reckoned with and that it is influencing the way consumers make decisions concerning what they buy and where. However, getting why social media is useful and knowing how to take advantage of it are quite different. With traditional media, some might dip their toes in the water with an ad or two. However, social media demands a head first dive right in.

Pregnancy is a beautiful miracle, but there are still a lot of body adjustments that can make expecting mothers count their sores before their blessings! One common occurrence is swelling in the legs due to increased pressure on the veins. As the pressure increases, the body has to work harder to circulate the blood, and blood can pool throughout the legs as a result. Swollen feet, tingling, and varicose veins are common complaints. So what can pregnant women do to feel better? Preggers by Therafirm™ provides gradient compression stockings, tights, and socks that can be a woman’s best defense against leg and feet discomfort during pregnancy.
