Postpartum belly binding is nothing new. In fact, it has been a part of traditional cultural practices for centuries in Europe, Asia, and other parts of the world. Many women discovered that wrapping their belly with fabric to apply gentle compression may help reduce swelling, increase blood flow, and reduce the risk of developing Diastasis Recti. Diastasis recti is the separation of the rectus abdominis muscles during and after pregnancy.

A Belly Binder is often worn after a vaginal birth or after a c-section birth to help protect the incision and promote healing.
