Postpartum girdle: great ally in the recovery of my body and self-esteem

Postpartum girdle great ally in the recovery of my body and self-esteem

Today, I want you to know my experience with the postpartum girdle, precisely when I needed it the most. Although motherhood is one of the most beautiful stages in any woman’s life, it produces multiple changes in the body that are important to treat from the beginning.

The postpartum period, for example, is a coming and going of emotions that keep us on edge all the time, either because of the joy that has come to stay in our lives (our children), or because of the changes that we suffer physically and that can affect our self-esteem.

Postpartum girdle: What is it for?

These are low compression girdles that help shape the figure and prevent fluid accumulation after giving birth in natural childbirth or cesarean section, under the indication of the obstetrician. Although there are multiple models of girdles, their use in the postpartum stage will be determined by the characteristics of the mother, both in terms of compression, size and time of use.

What are its advantages?

It is not for nothing that the therapeutic girdle has become a great ally for women after childbirth. However, it is important to be informed before deciding why to use it and which one would be the most convenient.

In my case, the features that seemed most positive to me were focused on the comfort they provide, as well as the feeling of wellbeing with my body, after having changed visibly during pregnancy.

Among the advantages of postpartum girdles, are:

– Back support and posture correction:

As a result of the growth of our tummy over 9 months, we tend to change our posture and suffer from back pain quite frequently. One of the benefits of the postpartum girdle is that it allows you to recover your pre-pregnancy posture, as it supports your back and helps you to eliminate lower back pain.

– A point in favor of your self-esteem:

As an ideal body shaping garment, it will be your great ally. Obviously, if you are looking to reduce sizes and achieve faster results, you must accompany its use with a proper diet and recurrent physical exercises. However, you will notice the change in your self-esteem immediately, by recovering your figure and even being able to wear clothes again that you may have forgotten about.

That feeling is undoubtedly a plus in a stage that we are just starting, so we need a touch of confidence to do better and better.

– You will be able to move more freely:

After so many days being careful before any movement, you will be able to feel a support for the day to day using the girdle, in addition, it will gradually end with that feeling of emptiness that we feel after childbirth.

In which cases is the postpartum girdle contraindicated?

Although it is a widely used and recommended garment, to have a pleasant experience and take advantage of all the benefits of the girdles, it is extremely important to have the opinion of the obstetrician before making any decision. Each body is different and only he will know what is most convenient for your health.

That said, its use is contraindicated if you do not plan to incorporate a basic exercise routine so that your body also takes the task of recovering gradually. That is, we should not let the postpartum girdle do all the work, but it should be a process in which we make the decision to feel good, wearing a girdle and leading a healthy life.

The most important thing is to enjoy the process. Live each stage with full awareness that it is not something definitive (if we talk about body changes), but also be open to integrate new habits and garments, such as the girdle, which will make the way much more pleasant.
