Facts about postpartum girdles

Benefits of Postpartum girdle

  • It speeds up your recovery process and enhances your self-esteem after childbirth.
  • It holds the middle section of your body in place. This prevents uncomfortable movements. Those who have had a caesarian section will be concerned about holding the stitches together. Postpartum girdles can help you to keep the incisions from reopening.
  • The pressure on the back increases during pregnancy. This leads to conditions such as spinal curvature, scoliosis, and radiculitis. A postpartum girdle is the best way to deal with these conditions.

When to wear a Postpartum girdle 

Depending on the type of delivery you have had, a postpartum girdle may be worn almost immediately. If you had a caesarian section, doctors advise that you allow the incision heal a bit before you start tightening that area. 

Also, the duration of usage of postpartum girdle varies from one person to another. It all depends on the type of body you have. The corset can be worn for up to 120 days. It’s about when you get the desired effect.

  1. Not sure how safe girdles are after pregnancy or generally at all. But I know a lot of women use them after pregnancy for shaping the body back into what it initially was.
