Hi, everybody! I am Melanie Raposo and welcome to Mommy's Minute. During pregnancy hormonal changes and increased pressure to your abdomen can cause varicose veins to appear. Wearing support stockings can help promote circulation and prevent varicose veins.

Sclerotherapy is a popular treatment involving an injection into the vein to reduce the appearance. Laser treatments can zap the appearance of varicose veins in only a few sessions.
