Belly Binding

Do you plan to do belly binding during/after this pregnancy? I'm trying it out today and loving the back support! I'll definitely do it postpartum!

Hadn't really read into it, but I would like to pp. I have seen some wraps with Velcro that are supposed to help bring the hips back to their original placement.

Never heard of this before. Is it like an after c-section support / shrinx hip thing?
I guess I should go read the link..

Re: Belly Binding

During pregnancy it's for additional support, and can help in keeping baby well positioned. Postpartum is can help hold everything in place to aid in healing as your organs go back to where they belong and your ab muscles come back together.

Re: Belly Binding

Oh, I could do this with my Moby right? I can never wear the commercial supports because they are too tight and aggravate my nausea. I might try this though, I could loosen it as necessary and I think the width in the front would stop the pressure from being too much.

Re: Belly Binding

A moby might be a little stretchy for doing this but it'd definitely be worth trying =)

Haven't heard of this, but may try. I wonder if it helps with sitting at a desk all day.
