Know how post-pregnancy belly wrap helps you.

The phase of pregnancy and giving birth to your baby are the most precious moments of your life. Your body has taken all the burden of growing a new being inside of you. And it has gone through tremendous changes throughout your pregnancy. Getting back to normal will take certain amounts of time post-delivery. Your body will require your attention and care during the process. 

One of the most important and overly challenging parts of the transformation process is the belly and stomach stretch. They stretch predominantly to accommodate the space for your baby. Post the delivery process, all the cells along the abdominal wall try to shrink back. But the push and the ordeal is not easy for your body to handle. A little push from your end might help the cells garner energy. No wonder belly wrapping is seen and followed for ages to support the mother’s body after delivery. 

How does belly wrap work?

Wrapping a material (typically fabric) around your midsection is described as belly wrapping. The material is generally firmly wrapped around your abdomen or stomach to give support and maintain it in place. This might be beneficial since your body will continue to change after you give birth, and having someone to support you can help your body heal correctly. Today, belly wrapping can range from conventional fabric lengths to postpartum girdles constructed from various materials (can be picked based on the material).

Belly wrapping in C-sections

Many believe that belly wrapping cannot be performed or used in C-section deliveries. As the cesarian involve cuts in the abdomen, many assume that belly wrap will cause pain or harm. But, belly wrapping, on the other hand, helps to ensure that your incision heals properly. Women who have had a C-section may experience a longer and more painful recovery than those who have had a vaginal delivery. However, having belly wrap will help you fasten the process and ensure a safe recovery. 

What to avoid during belly wrapping? 

While post-pregnancy belly wrapping is followed from ancient times, some common misconceptions are held against it. You must check out the following list and avoid them during your belly wrap plan. 

  1. Do not wear them too tight 
    The grandmothers in the family and your relatives might suggest you have your belly wrap as tight as possible. Belly binding helps your body heal by gently holding your abdomen in place and providing support for your core and pelvic floor. You need not make it tight and discomfort yourself during your recovery phase. 

  2. Notice the difficulty breathing 
    If you are wrapping your belly and facing some breathing issues, then it is the effect of your tight binding. You might overlook the tight-binding as you might feel like jello for the first few days. But, difficult breathing is a sign which signals you to loosen the grip. Notice your body signals and follow accordingly before any damage occurs. 

    Recovery following delivery is a long process, but there are certain things you can do to aid your body along the way. While there are certain safety precautions to take, postpartum belly binding is a fantastic way to help your body heal. It’s also simple to include into your everyday routine, whether you’re recovering in the hospital or at home!!
