"We strongly encourage all post-C-section patients to take advantage of the support the Belly Wrap products give to the abdominal core muscles in order to initiate physical activity from a lying down or sitting position to a standing position during the immediate postoperative recovery course. We have also found that our patients feel more confident about initiating and continuing to remain mobile post surgery by having the support needed to minimize pelvic pain post surgery."
There are many benefits to wrapping post C-section, A Belly Wrap can be used to help support your abdominal muscles after a C-section delivery when those muscles are at their weakest. They can also provide compression to help your uterus shrink back as well as incision area protection.
All of our Belly Wraps can be used post-C-section. Wearing a wrap after a C-section helps provide targeted compression specific to your recovery needs. Our Original, Viscose from Bamboo, and B.F.F. all utilize our Power Compress Core™ Technology which can help promote mobility, ease C-section discomfort, and strengthen core muscles weakened during pregnancy.
Our Luxe Belly Wrap is designed with our Stayput™ technology and SecureStretch™ fabric for a form-fitting fit that provides C-section moms with the ultimate in targeted compression and support.
Absolutely! In fact, The International Journal of Gynecology & Obstetrics has found that. “abdominal binders can be an effective, simple, non‐pharmacological option of relieving pain and distress after a Cesarean delivery.”
Since every woman has a different post-surgical experience, the timing varies from woman to woman. While some women wrap 2-3 days post-delivery, others find waiting a week or more to be more advantageous. It's a personal decision based on your recovery and comfort level. If you have concerns or questions about when to start wrapping, we recommend discussing it with your doctor.
Doctors recommend using a belly band after a C-section to help relieve postpartum pain and discomfort.
Yes! The International Journal of Gynecology & Obstetrics says wearing a Belly Wrap post-C-section is safe and, “can be an effective, simple, non‐pharmacological option of relieving pain and distress after a Cesarean delivery.”
You don't have to wear a wrap after a C-section. However, they have been shown to reduce postpartum pain and discomfort.
We recommend wearing your Belly Wrap immediately post-delivery for a minimum of 6-10 weeks. However, many women find wrapping to be effective long after this initial period. If you're breastfeeding, the hormone relaxin may stay in your system longer, giving you even more time to benefit from postpartum compression.
Wrap the band around your midsection. You can position it around your waist or pull it lower around your hips, depending on your comfort level. The ideal fit is a snug one, with constant pressure on the belly - but without any impact on breathing or circulation. (If discomfort occurs, remove the wrap and consult your healthcare provider.) Before sitting, try pulling the wrap lower on the body.
