Wrapping the belly is so effective and can be an important part of your postpartum journey. It naturally aids the body to shrink and recover in a shorter period of time. A belly bind provides your postpartum body with complete support to assist abdominal re-attachment, improve your posture, stabilise your loosened ligaments, and provide support to your torso while vital organs return to their pre-pregnancy size and position.
During pregnancy the body retains water, fat, and air which may cause your body to swell and expand. This also includes the organs in the womb area such as the cervix and vagina to also expand and enlarge. The water retained by cells supported the amniotic fluid and the purpose of the air was to cushion your baby, your internal organs, and bones as your centre of gravity shifted and your baby grew. When your baby was born, the excess water, fat, and flatulence are no longer needed and the cells will naturally release and shrink back to their pre-pregnant size.
