All three are made with silver-infused yarns to reduce odor and bacteria. No postpartum mesh underwear here!

What is the purpose of c section shorts?

A C-section is a major surgical operation and necessitates extra support and cleanliness over and around your stitches, as well as compression to help improve circulation and reduce swelling. After you give birth via C-section, your body has a lot of healing to do, and C-section shorts can help the journey significantly.

What should I wear to a hospital for C-section?
