For my first child I didn’t have any sort of postpartum girdle. No one warns you that your insides will feel all loose & “jiggly” after birth. I also had very little muscle in my abdomen after giving birth, which made it difficult to even sit up in bed! After finding out that I was pregnant again when my first child was only 8 months old, I began researching pelvic support girdles immediately. I knew that this time around I would be on the go SO much more – and boy oh boy, I had NO idea! By the time my 2nd child arrived, my 1st was 15 months old and running EVERYWHERE. The Mama Strut gave me the support I needed to be able to not only sit up in bed without trouble, but also to chase after my first one and even sit on the ground, play with him, and stand back up with confidence! Anyone who has had a baby vaginally knows that those can all be difficult feats in the first few weeks! I was doing all of that the day that I came home from the hospital! Mama Strut also helped me to get back in to shape quicker than anything! I kept telling everyone that it “pushed everything back to where it was supposed to be – and held it there”! Mama Strut gave me the confidence to be in a bathing suit THREE WEEKS after giving birth! Absolutely amazing!! If you have ANY doubts about purchasing this miracle worker – throw those doubts out the window and buy it now!
