I had a very difficult pregnancy and was on bed rest for many months. The lack of exercise and emotional eating contributed to a 55lb weight gain during my pregnancy.
Then after 36hrs of labor I had to have an emergency c-section. After the labor and surgery I was so exhausted and sore.
I started to wear my compression corset as soon as I got home from the hospital. It was literally a life saver, I could not get out of bed or hold my daughter without it.
It gave me so much support and a chance for my battered abdomen to heal.
I wore it 23hrs a day for 6 weeks and I bought two so I could always have a clean girdle. I still wear my girdle during exercise and when I have to carry my daughter a lot.
The extra support is amazing. I highly recommend this product to all new moms!
