Why you should wear a postpartum belly wrap
We all know that pregnancy causes our bellies to stretch beyond our imagination. This occurs to make room for our unborn child and while a pregnant belly is cute during pregnancy, once that baby is delivered, it can turn into a real disaster – or at least make our bellies look like one.
A flabby belly is completely normal to have following the birth of a child but it can still be devastating to look at and deal with on a daily basis. This is why some recommend the use of a postpartum belly wrap. A postpartum belly wrap is designed to help our bellies return to their flat state more quickly. for more information visit our website www.embraceyouhealth.com .
If you aren’t sure which belly wrap is right for you, here is a look at 4 different models:
- Velcro. This is a popular belly wrap because women love the convenience of being able to easily adjust the tightness or looseness of the girdle. It’s a great choice for women who have had a C-section because it’s made of cotton and doesn’t cause any pain to the wound.
- Pull-Up with Underwear. This is the best option if you want to be able to wear your postpartum belly wrap underneath clothing and not being able to tell that it’s even there – at least from the outside. Being that it’s attached to underwear, you may want to purchase several of these to have on a daily basis. It’s also important to realize that they aren’t adjustable so as you lose weight you will need a smaller size so it isn’t too loose.
- Half Wrap. This type of wrap does not include underwear and is made of a stretchy, spandex material that feels comfortable to most.
- Waist Cincher. This is probably the most uncomfortable type of postpartum belly wrap and that is because it’s also the tightest. It is not recommended for those who have had C-sections because wearing something so confined when you are dealing with such a wound just isn’t a good idea.
When choosing a belly wrap, it’s a good idea to try several different types on to be sure you choose the one that is most comfortable for you. You don’t want to be stuck with something that you can’t even stand wearing or you won’t get the results you’re after.
There are several excellent reasons to do postpartum belly wrap, and they go beyond cosmetic benefits. Think about it from this perspective; your body has spent nine months housing, growing and nurturing another human being. Your uterus expanded, your insides shifted, your skin stretched, your pelvis widened…the changes the body experiences during pregnancy are truly amazing. Then you go into labor and delivery; nine months of serious changes to your body are undone in a matter of hours! The fact is, your body needs just a little bit of help to be restored back to its former glory. This is where belly binding and postpartum belly wrap girdles and shapers come in. The benefits of postpartum body girdles include promotion of quick healing, back support, and regaining your pre-pregnancy body.
