I packed Mama Strut in my hospital bag and as soon as I got up and moving around baby I basically barely took it off. I continued to get some good use out of it for several weeks postpartum. It was waaaaaay better than the hospital compression bandages and they were also so easy to adjust. I liked it a little tighter when I was up moving around. It helped with incision discomfort and also support the incision from the cesarean, as well. Before finding this product, I searched around for nicer compression products for the postpartum period. I couldn’t find any that I liked as much as I liked Mama Strut!
