Abdominal Separation Recovery After Pregnancy
“I’ve shared before that I had some ab separation after Maya. It’s not the most pleasant experience ever, and it can be a bit frustrating.
I’m happy there are companies like @bellefit to support women in postpartum, both figuratively and literally. Get this, the company is headquartered in my hometown of sunny Weston, Florida! I could walk to the main office from my childhood home. So obviously they are really really really cool people!
I’ve been trying out the corset model and I have to say I wish I had known about it earlier in postpartum.
Those first couple of weeks I felt like all my internal organs were floating around and I was very protective of my belly. Having really solid support, compression and protection would’ve been great.
Will it eliminate diastasis recti or make you lose weight? Not exactly, that’s not the intention.
It’s geared toward recovery and healing. To help support and strengthen those abdominal muscles as you get used to using them again.
They have sizes and models for all kinds of scenarios: from natural birth to c-section.
It doesn’t replace healthy nutrition, exercise and mindset, and frankly I don’t think anything does. It’s a great tool to have on your team though. I’m going to be doing a giveaway shortly, so stay tuned for that. In the meantime you can click the link in my profile to learn more, and use the code SARAH20 to get $20 off if you purchase anything!”
