Post-Partum Abdominal Wrap – Get Your Figure Back!

Our Post-Partum Belly Band

You made it through your pregnancy, battled through your labour and then bought baby home. The joy of getting to know your newborn has taken over – it is a very special time. As your body recovers from making another human being, you may be left with another legacy. The post-partum tummy pooch.
Your tummy has been stretching and growing for over nine months, to the point where your skin shows the signs of stretch marks. Your muscles have moved and expanded to accommodate your basketball shape. No matter how hard you try to get back to your old shape, weeks or even months later you still look pregnant.

There has recently been some press about using abdominal wraps as a method of reducing that bulge. You may have heard of the Belly Bandit, a leading brand when it comes to tummy control and recovery. Many have tried it with interesting results. The downside… it is expensive. Well, we have some great news! We offer a great alternative that does not compromise on quality, for less than half the price! Our Post-Partum Belly Band is made from soft, comfortable fabric and is fully adjustable so it can fit your changing shape. Now you can try a best kept celebrity secret when it comes to looking hot after pregnancy! Maybe you will get back into your favourite dress after all…

 

Pregnancy can be expensive…

Actress Emily Blunt likes to shop.

Becoming pregnant and having a baby can be expensive. First of all there is kitting yourself out in maternity wear to accommodate your changing shape. However, this does not have to be expensive. A few core maternity outfits should see you through your pregnancy. Then, just think of all the baby stuff you need during the first year… crib, pushchair, high chair, monitors… that’s to name just a few items. It is so easy to get excited and spend money on things for your new arrival, only to discover that the item you bought isn’t quite right or that it never gets used once baby has arrived!

Let’s hope that actress Emily Blunt doesn’t have the same problem. Emily is rumoured to have spent a whopping $35,000 in an LA baby store in preparation for her new arrival. Items included a $7000 crib and a $5000 changing table.

Back in the normal world, it is worth spending a little extra on quality, must have items. Leave the rest until after baby is born so you truly know what you need and can make purchasing decisions based on the experience of being a Mum and caring for your baby.
