Oh my goodness, where do I begin?? With my last pregnancy and birth I had a whole of of pain, from my Sciatic nerve and from tearing, that made recovery very slow. It was very difficult to keep up with a newborn and a kindergartener! This time around I knew I needed to do something different and when I saw an ad for Mama Strut I knew that was my answer! I just had baby 2 weeks ago. I put my Mama Strut on the morning after i had him and only take it off to shower. It is AMAZING! I feel very supported, held together, and it takes so much pain away. Plus my stomach has shrunk so quickly! My husband has even noticed and comments all the time! Definitely worth every penny!
