Why You Should Use a Postpartum Girdle After Delivery

With all of my postpartum girdle reviews going on, I've gotten frequent amounts of questions revolving around them so I thought I would clear them up!

What does a postpartum girdle do?
A postpartum girdle compresses the tummy and uterus in order to help shrink it back to its original size-sometimes even smaller! Some are also made to shrink your hips as well. For C-section mamas, they help hold the incision in well due to the fact that some incisions tend to come apart. They also give you the support you need when using your abdominal muscles postpartum when you are still weak.

Why should you wear a postpartum girdle?

Many reasons:
  • Faster bounceback rate
  • Tummy support
  • Flattens your tummy & hips
  • Prevents enlargement of fat cells
  • Straightens your spine
  • Helps compress your uterus to not only return the uterus to its original size, but to help swelling go down and extra fluid come out.
When do you start wearing a girdle?
Immediately after giving birth, at the hospital! I strapped mine on 2-3 hours after I delivered.

How long are you supposed to wear the girdle for?
For the first 8 weeks immediately upon giving birth. This is because the hormone Relaxin stays within your system for this long!

What brand girdle do I recommend?
My favorite is Belly Bandit. I used this girdle for two weeks post pregnancy and my abs were as flat as can be! Click here to view their girdles.

Is it worth the money ?
Simply put-YES? 

Can I skip it?
Sure! Absolutely. Girdles just speeds up the process of getting back to your pre-pregnancy body and compress areas that your body normally cannot on its own.
