Authors’ conclusions
Rutosides appear to help relieve the symptoms of varicose veins in late pregnancy. However, this finding is based on one small study (69 women) and there are not enough
data presented in the study to assess its safety in pregnancy. It therefore cannot be routinely recommended.
Reflexology appears to help improve symptoms for women with leg oedema, but again this is based on one small study (43 women).
External compression stockings do not appear to have any advantages in reducing oedema.
