Support for the abdomen and torso
Many women require support for their abdomen and torso after childbirth. A girdle is a great way to support a new mother's stomach or abdominal muscles that may have been weakened after delivery. Although the healing process after childbirth is a natural process that is managed by the body itself, it can be aided with additional support that strengthens the stomach and other muscles in the recovery period. A girdle provides valuable support for the torso as the stomach, uterus, and muscles contract and recover, all while improving your posture. In combination with careful exercise and gentle strength training, a girdle can really aid in the recovery process. The girdle also provides a slimmer silhouette.
After childbirth, we recommend three different models of girdles. Which one you choose depends on your needs and what properties would be most helpful to you.
Vira x2 A stable and adjustable girdle with two different panels. Relieves tension and helps distribute the weight around the torso and abdomen. The girth of the girdle can be adjusted as your body changes after pregnancy. Suitable for those who have a bit of belly left after childbirth and want a girdle that is easy to adjust, especially as your measurements change in the period of time after.
Lyft Plus — A stable girdle with a shaped front that fits well on rounder stomachs that have not returned to normal after pregnancy. Effectively relieves the abdomen and surrounding abdominal muscles. Provides a bit of a lift around the stomach and helps support the back. The size and shape of the girdle can be easily adjusted. Suitable for those with larger bellies after childbirth and those who want a girdle with highly effective support.
The number of Caesarean sections has increased sharply over the last thirty years. For women who have delivered via Caesarean section, a stomach girdle can provide excellent support and thorough pain relief immediately after the surgery. It can also greatly supplement the recovery period afterwards. What's more, a girdle can ease pain that might come from coughing or laughing, activities that can be quite unpleasant for those who have recently had abdominal incisions such as a Caesarean.
After Caesarean section, we recommend three different models of girdles. Which one you choose depends on your needs and what properties would be most helpful to you.
Lyft Plus — A stable girdle with a shaped front that fits well on rounder stomachs that have not returned to normal after pregnancy. Effectively relieves the abdomen and surrounding abdominal muscles. Suitable for those who have had a Caesarean section or suffer from hernia problems. The size and shape of the girdle can be adjusted.
Support for the back and spine
Back pain is extremely common among pregnant women and often begins rather early in the pregnancy. Up to 80% of all pregnant women are expected to suffer from some form of back pain. It can have several causes, including pressure from the uterus, weight gain, altered posture, and the general hormonal impact pregnancy can have on the body. Weight gain and additional pain often go hand in hand, both tending to increase with each week of a pregnancy. There is strong evidence that physical activity can help with back pain. In many cases, a backrest can be very beneficial in providing pain relief; it can also be important in enabling physical activity. Most people experience considerable pain relief as well as tremendous comfort when using backrests, all without any of the side effects you might get with medication. For any serious or severe problems, however, please consult a physiotherapist first.
After childbirth, we recommend three different models of back rests. Which one you choose depends on your needs and what properties would be most helpful to you.
Atle Abdomen — A stable backrest with a tailored front that fits over your belly while pregnant or immediately after giving birth. The extra drawstring makes it easy to find a comfortable level of support for the lumbar spine. Plus the adjustable closure allows you to alter the fit so it stays comfortably on your body throughout your pregnancy.
Tuff — A highly stable backrest that suits those with smaller stomachs after childbirth. Can be placed lower down the hip to help treat pelvic and back pain that might persist after giving birth. Wide velcro fasteners enable you to adjust the backrest easily, allowing you to use it over either the waist or the hip and enabling you to adapt it as your body changes in the period after pregnancy.
