4 Benefits of wearing Post-partum maternity girdles

Wearing a well-designed postpartum girdle while resting and recovering from delivery has great benefits for the mother. In a simple summary, here are 4 benefits of wearing these maternity clothes.

Post-pregnancy tummy support for the female body

This is one of the most important benefits of a post-partum girdle. Needless to say, the abdomen of a pregnant woman gets bigger as the fetus grows and it doesn’t snap back to its former position after delivery. The expanded abdomen is the major cause of low back pain and many women do not like their body image because of the apparently bigger abdomen. A post-pregnancy girdle can enhance your body image as it perfectly tucks the abdomen in and leaves you with nothing to worry about. Besides resting, eating proper nutritious food, a good post girdle support helps. Wearing a proper girdle is known to aid the reversal process while enhancing your body image.

Stretched reversed abdominal support

The abdominal wall of many women is stretched during pregnancy especially in the third trimester. For most women, the stretching is reversed within a few months after delivery. It may be slow and takes more than a year for some. Even worse the stretching is not reversed for some women. The post-partum girdle has been shown to quicken the reversal process after vaginal birth. If the stretched abdominal wall is not reversed properly, it could lead to health problems. Some common health problems associated with stretched abdominal wall are urinary incontinence, lower back pains, etc.

Abdominal separation

An estimated 66% of pregnant women experience abdominal separation. The widening space between the walls of the right and left belly causes abdominal separation. Doctors advised mothers to rest for 1 year and more before attempting pregnancy again to allow the tummy time to reverse. This will avoid strains on the tummy. A post-partum girdle will help to aid the reversal of the separation by bringing the right and left abdominal muscles together.

Ease backpains

Many women experienced bad posture and lower back pains during pregnancy and also after giving birth. The support provided by the girdle helps to strengthen posture and reduce lower back pains.
