Post pregnancy belly wrapping seems to be quite trend in the pregnancy and postpartum communities.  While the trend may be relatively new in the Western world, it has actually been known in other cultures for a long time.

Long pieces of fabric have been traditionally used to wrap around the belly multiple times to provide abdominal compression.  These wraps have gone by many different names in each part of the world, but the goal is the same – to assist in weight loss and toning of the abdominal muscles after birth.

As the western world has grabbed onto this concept and altered it for the modern mama, many women have adopted the claim that belly wrapping will give them a slim and toned belly much quicker.  But, does it really work?

The jury is definitely still out on this one.  Some physicians and other experts say that, without a doubt, belly wrapping will give a postpartum mother back her pre-pregnancy shape much quicker, claiming that the abdominal compression reshapes the abdomen, returns a uterus to normal size, promotes skin healing and even returns a woman back to her normal routine all in a faster amount of time than a traditional postpartum recovery.

But, as with every debate, there are other physicians and experts that disagree.  Their argument is that the only true way to return to your pre-baby body is with a healthy diet and regular exercise.  Most experts on this side of the debate say that although the wraps don’t really help, they also do not really hurt, saying that wearing a belly wrap can help you fit better into some clothing, as well as making you feel more comfortable and therefore more likely to move or exercise.  However, there are some that claim that the wraps can be counterproductive in that belly wraps prevent a mother from strengthening her core abdominal muscles.

While the debate continues on, there is one thing that almost everyone can agree on – that gentle abdominal support and compression does help a postpartum woman feel more comfortable (especially after a c-section) and promote recovery.

The Postpartum Support Band from Preggers is the perfect bridge to this debate.  Our Postpartum Support Band gives new mamas gentle support and compression to the back and abdomen promoting a quicker and more comfortable recovery.  The seamless and super soft material is comfortable against the skin and not irritating.  The support band can easily adapt to most body shapes due to its super elasticity.  It gently clings to your body allowing it to be worn discretely under clothing.

Before wearing the Preggers Postpartum Support Band, or any other type of post pregnancy product, check with your healthcare provider to make sure it is the right product for you.
