Launched in 2008, Bellefit girdles have helped thousands of women around the world find comfort after having a baby. They’ve also helped women discover happiness and enjoy more confidence in their bodies.
We’ve decided to expand our outreach even further through a new partnership with the Susan B. Anthony Recovery Center in Pembroke Pines, Fla.
Susan B Anthony Recovery Center
The Center has provided rehabilitation from substance abuse to expectant mothers and women with children since 1995.
One of only a few full-service recovery centers in the United States, the Susan B. Anthony Recovery Center provides residential and outpatient treatment in a loving, structured environment. A woman receives the support she needs while living with and caring for her children while in their care.
Beginning March 3, Bellefit Maternity donated Postpartum Recovery Girdles to current patients of the center.
Furthermore, we will continue to donate to future patients at the Center who are expecting a baby or have recently given birth.
Bellefit founder Cynthia Suarez recently recalled how much her own daughter struggled after having children. She developed the product to not only alleviate the discomfort of an incision from a C-section, but also provide a much-needed boost of confidence to recovering moms.
“Being a mom of four and a grandmother of seven, I know, first-hand, how challenging motherhood can be,” Suarez said.
It was through the Center’s partnership with The Rotary Club of Weston that Suarez’s son, Andy, a Rotarian, met Whitney Hughson, associate director of marketing at the SBARC.
When Hughson shared the stories of moms who struggle with addiction while trying to raise their children. She explained that the Center helps women lead healthier, more productive lives. Suarez immediately knew Bellefit needed to get involved.
“Bellefit Girdles make moms’ lives easier after childbirth. It gives them a boost of confidence during a time when women are focused on their baby and usually feel guilty about caring for themselves,” Suarez said.
The girdles reduce uterus swelling by safely supporting and compressing the abdominal and lumbar regions. They provide a faster and more comfortable postpartum recovery for those who have undergone a C-section or natural childbirth. It’s especially helpful for those experiencing diastasis recti or pain.
Suarez called the partnership a perfect match.
Our hope for women at the Susan B. Anthony Recovery Center is that they continue to find the courage and strength to improve the quality of their lives, so they can give the best of themselves to their children,” she said. The center can accommodate housing for approximately 60 women at any given time during rehabilitation. However, the outpatient program extends far beyond that number. The Center is certain to see positive benefits from the generous Bellefit partnership.
