Postpartum abdominal binders have been used for centuries after the birth of a baby. The goal for this postpartum tool is to help a new mother feel more stable, be able to get around more easily and to improve her posture. Recently moms have said that this has been a great way to help them get back to their pre-pregnancy weight. It can be used for a vaginal or cesarean birth mom. In fact, some hospitals are beginning to bind after birth.
1. Belly Bandit
The Belly Bandit is designed to help postpartum moms regain their waist line faster. The support in the first days after birth can be very comforting. I'm not sure my waist is in any better shape with the Belly Bandit after 8 weeks, but it was a good reminder of holding in my core muscles and maintaining my posture.
