We recommend wearing the Belly Wrap for the first six to ten weeks postpartum to provide core support, help promote mobility and ease back pain. Our Belly Bandit Belly Wraps are designed to work with relaxin, a natural hormone produced during pregnancy. Relaxin allows your pelvis and ligaments to soften for childbirth and stays in your body for a limited amount of time post-delivery, the perfect time to begin wrapping.
"Belly Bandit® abdominal compression wraps provide additional back support and expedite the rate at which the abdomen returns to its pre-pregnancy state."
We certainly think so! Postpartum belly compression has been practiced for centuries worldwide as it has been recognized as an effective way to help women recover after childbirth. Belly Bandit modernized this ancient practice in order to provide women with products that comfortably compress and strengthen core muscles weakened during pregnancy.
Belly Bandit offers a wide array of products that provide postnatal compression. Our collection of Belly Wrap products are specifically designed to provide targeted compression utilizing our SecureStretch™ and Power Compress Core™ technologies. Our corsets, girdles, C-section Recovery products, and even our Mother Tucker Compression leggings, tanks, and shorts all provide compression that can help in the postpartum period.
We recommend starting with postpartum compression immediately after a vaginal delivery. C-section moms tend to wait anywhere from a few days two a few weeks, depending on their post-surgical experience. The best advice is to listen to your body and do what feels right for you. Of course, if you have any concerns about the timing of postpartum stomach compression, we recommend discussing it with your doctor.
Our Belly Wraps are specifically designed to help with postpartum recovery and are the best starting point for post-pregnancy compression. C-section moms can start with our C-section and Recovery Undies or Shorts to ease into wearing compression products.
This is a great question, and the answer is that it varies from woman to woman. Our best advice, give your body the time it needs to recover, use our postpartum compression and recovery products as needed and when ready, slowly introduce exercise into your postpartum regimen.
Unfortunately, there is no way to say exactly how long or even if your stomach will flatten after giving birth. Our advice is a combination of postpartum compression, exercise, and a healthy diet. But remember, you just had a baby, so be patient, and give yourself all the time you need to recover - self-care is what’s most important!
