I purchased the Mama Strut for my second pregnancy, which was a scheduled csection. I started using it about 5 days postpartum and I’m still using Mama Strut and my little guy is almost 2 weeks old. It has helped tremendously with swelling and pain. Once I started using it I no longer had to take pain medication and it was so much easier to move around. I wish I would have known about this product when I was pregnant with my other son, which was a csection as well. — Devon K.
