How did you come up with the idea for the BellySLING?
Before she retired, Jean MacDougall a registered nurse ran a retirement home where the cook was pregnant. "I worried about her falling when she bent over the stove or dishwasher," Jean said. The cook¹s grandmother remembered when she was a young woman living among hard working farm families, some pregnant women wore a device to support their wombs. "It bugged me. Where did that information get lost?" Jean thought. So she set about modernizing the idea and the BellySLING became a reality.
