Having a baby is one of the most exciting times of your life, but it’s also one of the most stressful times especially on your body as it rapidly adapts to the changes happening inside you, and as you give birth and recover afterwards. Within a short twelve months, your body goes through almost unrecognisable change and although it’s all entirely natural, it’s also natural that you might need some support with coping with these changes. That’s where the Belly Bandit can come in and start working wonders for you.
Common Complaints During Pregnancy
One of the most common complaints with pregnancy both during, and after, is the muscle pains and the backaches. As you get bigger, the weight distribution of your body changes and affects your posture, the way you carry yourself and the way you walk. After your baby is born, your body will then be tasked with recovering from birth and still carrying baby, but now in your arms. No wonder new mums get backache!
How Can A Belly Band Help
When we get a bad back, one of the first things we do press the muscles on either side of the spine to relieve the pain, our pregnancy support band offers the same support, but more convenient than holding your back!
A belly band offers additional support for your belly and your back so that as you move around, your abdominal muscles don’t have to work quite as hard to keep up with you. As you enter the later stages of pregnancy, your abdominal muscles get weaker as they begin to move apart to make room. Understandably, this means you need other muscles to work harder to keep you going…or you could use a Belly Bandit to give the extra support your body needs.
Increase Core Stability During Preganancy
A belly band can help stabilise your core and adjust how your tummy sits, relieving some of the stresses on your back muscles. The same is true once your baby is born. Some babies want to be held for hours on end, but even just holding them long enough for feeding can be a strain on your body, especially if you haven’t got the correct posture, or have had a C-Section. Whilst you support your little one on your arm or hip, either carrying them with you or feeding, your core muscles are working overtime. A belly band supports your lower back, gently compressing the muscle tissue and surrounding areas to give them support and help them strengthen back up in all the right places.
Belly Bands Are Adjustable for Postpartum Wear
Our Belly Bandits are all adjustable so they will grow and shrink with your belly as your body changes whilst pregnant and postpartum. They are designed to grow and shrink just as fast as you do and support you at whatever stage of pregnancy you’re at. Just in case you will also have a compression belt for after a c section, best prepare for all scenarios. Although you may only need one, there’s no harm in buying several since they come in a variety of colours and you can even purchase belly bands with lace detailing for days when you want to feel every inch the woman you are.
