UTERUS RECOVERY

UTERUS RECOVERY

After baby is born, the space in the uterus remains. External compression is essential to prevent prolapsed uterus and sagging belly.

MUSCLE RECOVERY

MUSCLE RECOVERY

Repairing abdominal separation after birth is the key, appropriate core exercise and a postnatal belly band will be essential for recovery.

FOR C-SECTION RECOVERY

  • Uterus recovery: Stabilises the uterus to avoid discomfort when moving and accelerate uterus recovery.
  • Reduce pain: Stabilises the surgical wound to avoid pulling on the wound when moving around to assist with healing.
  • Coughing after surgery: Anesthesia during c-section can cause a build up of mucus in the airways. Coughing while wearing the belly band can reduce pain caused by vibration.
  • Relief back pain: Distributes weight from the spine and improves posture to reduce back pain.
  • Get back in shape: Assist with abdominal separation and tightening of the belly muscles and skin
  • IMPORTANT! Position the belly band around your pelvis and make sure to well cover your wound, to protect + stabalise

What experts say about abdominal support post birth?

The journey through Motherhood is an exciting, busy and exhausting one. To Restore and Reform yourself and your body following the birth of your baby, an abdominal support in the form of an abdominal binder is recommended to be worn for 6-8 weeks following the birth of your baby if abdominal separation is greater than 3-4 finger widths or 50mm. Make sure the binder is comfortable to wear for long periods of time and in all positions, sitting, standing etc. and is kind to the skin.

I highly recommend the Mamaway Nano Bamboo Postnatal Recovery & Support Belly Band It is soft but rigid enough to supply appropriate support. The extra external wrap allows specificity to an abdominal separation and provides more specific back support.

Many women are keen to return to exercise following the birth of their baby. Participating in sport, running or other high impact activities too early after childbirth may reduce pelvic floor muscle strength and cause long term bladder and bowel problems or pelvis organ prolapse, so it is important to be guided by a women health physiotherapist during this time. During the early weeks postnatal, walking combined with abdominal and pelvic floor exercise is appropriate. It is recommended to wait until your 6th week postnatal check with your obstetrician, midwife or continence professional before increasing your activity level.
