Which Are The Best Postpartum Girdles for New Moms This Year?
Welcome to motherhood! And if this is not your first rodeo, welcome back! It’s an amazing time filled with so much love, sweetness, sleeplessness and stress. New mother’s go through many ups and downs, but wouldn’t give up the experience for anything!
Even though you are filled with so much love for your baby, however, it’s important to remember to have some self-love too! And in a time when your body has gone through so much and has achieved so much (you did bring new life after all!) its normal for it to feel a little worn and beat up.
What is a Post-Partum Girdle
A postpartum girdle fits tightly around the torso, belly, and hips in order to cynch in the waist and help reshape the body after having a c-section or the vaginal birth of a baby.
Post-partum girdles should fit snuggly around the midsection, without being overly tight, in order to maximize their benefits. The tightness and compression is what helps improve posture and helps tighten the skin and compress the uterus so that mom can recover after the baby’s birth, There are several types of postpartum underwear available for mothers that can fit your style, comfort and needs.
Benefits of a Post-Partum Body Shaper
Post-partum underwear and body shapers offer several different benefits to women who have recently had a baby. They are not simply beneficial for a mother’s appearance, but they have real health and emotional benefits as well. Here we will go over a few of them:
Aids in C-Section Recovery
Wearing a post-partum girdle, offers protection and support for the incision made during a c-section, which reduces the chances of the c-section sutures breaking, the wound becoming eviscerated, or the incision of the c-section being compromised due to sudden movements, which are difficult to avoid when trying to take care of a newborn baby.
Aids in the Draining of the Lymphatic System
The lymphatic system in your body needs muscle movement to push fluids through in order to perform functions that are vital for your well-being. Postpartum body shapers compress the abdominal area and your uterus in order to reduce the collection of fluids and thus reduce swelling and allowing for faster healing and recovery of your body.
Helps Rectify Diastasis Recti
Diastasis Recti is the separation of your abdominal wall. It is a common occurrence during the grow of your belly during pregnancy. Regular abdominal exercises can actually cause the Diastasis Recti to become more aggravated, which is why specialized exercises and a post-partum girdle are needed. Even without diastasis-recti, women need adequate core strength and stability for proper lifting and carrying after delivering a baby and postpartum underwear is made to do just that.
Helps Rectify Pendulous Abdomen
Pendulous abdomen occurs when the muscles of the pelvic floor and abdominal wall become increasingly weaker making the uterus tips forward. This condition is not merely a cosmetic issue, it can actually affect childbirth deliveries in the future, because it can interfere with the descent of a baby from the uterus during childbirth.
Relieve Lower Back Pain
Back pain is something that occurs in women during pregnancy and after childbirth. The support and compression of a post-partum girdle helps reduce uterus swelling and supports the lumbar region, giving you better posture and prevention and relief of back pain.
