    Postpartum support belts?

    Advertisements
    Anyone ever had one? Love it, hate it? Recommendations? A friend mentioned it to me and I had never heard of one, so I'm trying to gather all the opinions I can.

    I had one with my youngest. The hospital gave it too me. I hated it with a passion. I hurt worse WITH that on than without (all my babies are c-section babies).

    I thought they would be a great idea until I got home from the hospital. I had a c-section and there is no way I could consider putting something around my middle right now. Maybe after the incision heals up, but that may be too late to have any impact. I've heard great things about them from moms who delivered vaginal. Good luck!
    I would like to be with my for a while but thats what made me so tired in the first place!

    I used a few different ones, but it was a lifesaver for me. I had a c-section, and it helped so much that I was up and moving around well quickly, so much so that they let me go home a day early (for a c/s, normal amt of time for a vag delivery). I was also able to go up and down my stairs the day I came home, stopped taking narcotic pain meds on day two after c/s (only took ibuprofen for about 5 days total), etc. I credit it all to the belt. It made coughing, laughing, moving, carrying the baby, etc all seem much easier and tolerable. I would take it off sometimes at night, and it would hurt more, so it totally made a difference for me.

    Oh, and a bonus - I feel it made my swelling and c/s "kangaroo pouch" go down to more normal size quicker.
