"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."
