I already have a maternity belt and I purchased postpartum girdle, I obtained them both on the net early in my pregnancy. After making the purchase, I figure I should learn what the postpartum girdle is supposed to achieve.
A maternity belt is involved with delivering the pregnant mother some relief through the burden of producing a baby (mainly the tummy, pelvis, back, etc…). On a side note the belly band I bought finally had to be substituted with a new 2-part maternity belt because the other one would relentlessly flip on itself and in the end it was simply utilized for supporting my trousers from dropping off. Which can be important too..
The postpartum girdle is used almost immediately after the childbirth with the hope it will help you to get into the form you possessed prior to your pregnancy. It also helps to reduce soreness with the movement of your currently re-organized insides. Postpartum girdles can often be utilized around the clock seven days a week (not including baths needless to say!) as long as is individually needed.
Postpartum girdles can also aid you in fitting back into your outfits from before being pregnant. Also, helping you loose
belly by ‘tucking’ it in till your exercise regime allows you to tone up. They also increase lymphatic drainage and help reduce water retention. With some woman, the girdle will lessen postpartum bleeding, uterine cramping and low back pain.
Postpartum girdles are available in 2 categories.
- Actual girdles which appear to be the ones your grandmother used to wear.
- Banded support which are stretchy panels used around the tummy.
Women who’ve experienced a C section the postpartum girdle may help with healing by preserving the incision site and sort of ‘keeping you together’ thus minimizing your possible discomfort.
Ask a physician to point out the ideal garment to suit your needs.
If you need a large amount of support or else you demand that feeling of firmness you’ll want a heavy duty grandma-style girdle. If you require something to assist you to keep the shape below your outfits you are going to want a easy banded style belt, which is the one that I have.
