I just gave birth to my son on July 24th. During birth I suffered an injury to my tailbone along with needing forceps and an episiotomy to get my 9 lb 11 oz perfect baby boy into the world. I was in so much pain and could barely move during my hospital stay. I couldn’t get out of bed on my own or even pick up my baby without help. I gave birth on a Tuesday and Thursday I got the confirmation that my Mama Strut came in the mail. I immediately sent my dad to go pick it up for me. I put it on that night and for the first time since having my son I was able to start to feel a bit more like myself. I took my baby for a walk to the nurses station (and then made a few more trips on my own), sat in a chair to nurse, and sat on the edge of the bed to eat my dinner. Most importantly I was able to pick my son up out of his bassinet and hold him without help. Now I am about a week and a half postpartum and the Mama Strut is the only thing keeping me functional with my tailbone injury. I wear it constantly and use the ice pack for my back multiple times a day. I’m also so happy with the results of how much it has shrunk my stomach already! When I first put it on in the hospital I was glad I ordered the extenders because I couldn’t close it, by the next day I was able to close it and pull it tighter and tighter. I’m feeling more confident in clothes and so thrilled that I left the hospital not looking pregnant at all anymore! Thank you for this amazing product! I told everyone I could about it while in the hospital and that it was the reason I could function! The nurses had not heard of Mama Strut and they were all writing down the name of it so they would remember! If you are considering ordering the Mama Strut you will not be disappointed! This has been a total lifesaver and I plan to continue to wear it for a while. It is really helping with support for my tailbone injury! It is the best purchase I made for myself with this pregnancy! The photo included is me at 37 weeks pregnant, then the day I came home from the hospital and then 10 days postpartum. I think I may be smaller now than I was before I had my son!
