I made a postpartum belly wrap!

Someone in one of my Facebook groups posted about a "Bengkung belly binding" wrap that a friend was giving her for postpartum. I started to do some reading about it and wanted to do it myself, but couldn't afford to purchase a wrap, so I made one from my fabric stash. I have plans for a second one, too, but have to get unpacked before I try to tackle that project. What do y'all think?

Dye it! Do a low water immersion dye method and make it colorful.

Re: I made a postpartum belly wrap!

Have you found that postpartum belly bands actually work to help with getting back your shape after baby? Or will picking up my 60 minute abs post baby do the same thing? Part of me wonders if it will just help with posture more than anything.

I ended up not using it very much since I ended up with another unexpected crash c-section and then a really, really difficult recovery.
