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!
If you are a new mom or mom to be, here are some helpful tips that explain the benefits of wearing postpartum girdle after delivery. I used a postpartum girdle and I experienced all these benefits. So, I am sure these tips will help another mom to experience all these benefits after the delivery of the baby!
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
