“Roll to your side and get out of bed.” Dreaded words to hear for the C-Section mom or abdominal surgery patient. Without support around the abdomen, you can feel like your insides are going to fall out! You can be proactive in your recovery without doing anything more complicated than compressing the abdomen and massaging yourself.
Cesarean section birth is major abdominal surgery as they cut 6 layers. Surgeons no longer cut the muscles, but stretch the muscles open and cut layers around those muscles and organs in order to deliver the baby.
C Section recovery needs for women are very real and you deserve the best care so you can focus on baby, and heal without the additional burdens of fear and pain.
Vaginal birth mothers also need support to promote faster healing. The use of binding for postpartum mothers is common to many cultures and has a long and proven history of effectively speeding healing and recovery.
Binding of abdomen reduces pain & promotes faster healing. Abdominal cinding is as ancient as childbirth itself. When your pain level is decreased, you can take a deep breath and relax. Reducing your stress and pain levels makes it easier to move around and speeds healing. Reduce lower back pain and protect yourself while breastfeeding and handling baby, simply by binding your abdomen.
For any type of childbirth, binding the abdomen supports your organs and helps you to get your shape back more quickly. Post surgery binding reduces pain and hold things together.
Why is compression so important during pregnancy, after abdominal surgery, cesarean section birth, or vaginal birth?
Compression helps to reduce swelling, stabilizes the skin,muscles and internal organs to shrink back. Basically compression presses tissue together, it makes the space in between the fibers smaller through pressure. Compression is done through binding, massage or holding of the area.
Some hospitals provide post surgery binders, but they are generally stiff and not very soft. When I had my emergency c section the hospital gave me… a bandage. Can you imagine, with an incision like the one above what it would feel like to wrap a bandage around your tummy over and over to create the effect of a cesarean binding belt?
It was from this experience that I decided other women deserved a better option and with the help and advice of the midwife I had hoped would birth my son and other women, the C Section Recovery Belt and Abdomend products were designed.
