Using it as we speak. After a very long (76hours) complicated labor and delivery that ended in an emerging c-section, this Mama Strut system has been invaluable.
The pictures in the blue top were the day I delivered. The other ones are 2 and a half days after surgery and continuous use of the Mama Strut.
Within 12 hours of my surgery I was able to semi close it with the extender straps and it really has helped me get in and out of the hospital bed, to the bathroom, even just sleeping in it is more comfortable because the hospital bed is super firm and I’ve woken up less achy when I wear it.
I will say it is a sort of challenge to undo and slide down because I cant really use my abdomen, but when it’s on I feel almost human again.
I’m 2 days after surgery currently and it’s been getting easier to close and use and the swelling has gone down considerably.
I can almost cough comfortably in it too.
I would absolutely get it if you’re hesitating.
