POST PARTUM SUPPORT
What is compression & how does it help?
Compression is a method that has been safely utilised for centuries. We are here to help you post-pregnancy and reignite your pre-baby confidence. As we all know pregnancy leads to weight gain and skin stretching, it weakens your tummy muscles and this requires special support at this important time.
- Compression and body shaping will gently persuade your tummy muscles back together resulting in muscle memory and reduction of stretch marks
- Our shapers compress the stomach, hips and waist, which have all expanded during pregnancy. One reason this works is because of a hormone called relaxin.
- Custom compression helps flush excess fluid through the body’s system, it will also help reduce swelling known as edema by compressing small blood vessels and capillaries and minimise bruising
- Last but not least, they will make you feel amazing in and out of clothing!
Why use body shapers to regain your pre-pregnancy body?
During pregnancy, hormones such as estrogen, progesterone and relaxin - which help to loosen the abdominal muscles and the pelvic structure, while supporting joints and ligaments to prepare for childbirth - remain in the body after childbirth for approximately six months.
Compression garments work by drawing in stretched muscles, providing a support structure around the torso, while reducing strain on ligaments and joints in the lower back, pelvis, and buttocks. Some are configured to squeeze certain areas, and leave others to jiggle.
Reducing stress in these areas enhances your body’s ability to return to its pre-pregnancy alignment, shape and lose the post baby tummy.
