Benefits of Wearing a Postpartum Girdle After Delivery

As a first time mommy, I was lucky that my doctor advised me to use a postpartum girdle after I gave birth to my baby. Following doctor’s advice my husband bought an abdominal binder from the hospital pharmacy. It is true that four years ago I was not much aware of the benefits of having a girdle for me after a C-section. However, today I am glad that I used an abdominal binder!

So, I am sure these tips will help another mom to experience all these benefits after the delivery of the baby!

Benefits of Wearing Postpartum Girdle After Delivery

A Postpartum Girdle or an abdominal binder is a special garment that also compresses and shapes your body. This is why it is helpful to get the shape back after the delivery. Especially for those who deliver the baby via C-section, sometimes it is difficult to come back to the normal shape of the body. I remember the sagging and loose tummy I had during the first few weeks after the delivery. Luckily I could get firm belly skin and almost flat tummy in few months. When the kid was celebrating his first birthday I was almost in my pre pregnancy weight

These girdles are also helpful if one has had surgery near the stomach or abdominal area. My grandmother swore by girdles and encouraged us to wear them whenever possible. I have to say that her advice has helped me immensely.

I have never been pregnant myself, so this topic is all new to me! However this is good to know for whenever the time comes. It's always good to feel good about yourself, especially right after when the depression can kick in.

I think that Postpartum girdles are one of the more controversial topics in the world of pregnancy and postpartum care. The fact is that there are very good reasons to try out a postpartum belly wrap, and I honestly believe every mama out there would benefit from using one !
