Did anyone use a Belly Bandit or other type of wrap after a c/s?

Hi Melissa.

Wow...I just looked at your ticker and you are SO CLOSE!!! What an exciting time!!!

I have had 2 c/s and have never used any type of wrap. What is it used for? Are you supposed to heal quicker if you use it? I might consider it since #3 will be a c/s as well.

I'm looking forward to any other responses.

Hi Melissa. I delivered both my girls vaginally but I've heard nothing but great things about the Belly Bandit. Carly, one of the moms on our board who just delivered twin boys about a month ago via c-section(at the young age of 46) said she thought her seemingly quick and relatively easy recovery was in large part due to her Belly Bandit. I've heard of other women saying the same or similar thing. Sorry I can't offer you more personal experience with it but hopefully some other ladies here can offer more personal stories about it.

From what I understand, the compression helps after any type of abdominal surgery (similar to hugging the pillow every time you move).
