Day 2 in the hospital after my csection, I put on a belly-binder right away. The benefits are numerous for many reasons including support for my core & helping my body heal from inflammation from the inside out. Once home, I hurried to wear my Mama Strut Postpartum Brace & OMG!!! This brace has changed the game seriously within days! The complete series includes hot & cold packs for all the right places & the actual brace is a soft, boy-shorts that’s really helped ease the pain & pressure on my back from the epidural. I highly recommend!!!!!
