Abdominal Binder for Diastasis Recti w/ Birth Recovery DVD
"The mamalates essential binder is leaps and bounds better than the other one that I bought- I love it!" -W.R
Binding and splinting postpartum has been practiced around the world for hundred's of years. Support your back, encourage your abdominal muscles to "weave" back together and stay lifted as you carry, wear and care for your new little one. The postpartum abdominal binding is especially beneficial if you are experiencing diastasis recti or pelvic floor issues. Encourage your abdominal muscles to come back together ( and help lose the pooch) by performing mamalates restorative abdominal exercises and wearing this abdominal binder throughout the day. If your abdominal's are separated, wearing the binder without performing restorative exercises is not recommended. The mamalates flash card that include tips on birth recovery, c-section, pelvic floor exercises and abdominal separation DO'S + DONT'S, is included with the purchase of this abdominal binder. All Diastasis Recti Essential BINDERS NOW COME WITH A MAMALATES Birth Recovery/ Safe Postpartum Core Exercises DVD! Insurance may reimburse you for birth recovery related products.

FAQ's about postpartum splinting/ abdominal binding
Q; "How long will it take for my abdominal separation to heal?"
A: It depends on how separated you are, your tissue and if you are performing restorative exercises along with the splint. Usually, it can take 6-12 weeks. Mayan abdominal massage can also be beneficial when healing separated abdominal's postpartum.
Q: "I had my baby 2+ years ago- is it too late to get successful results and get my abs to close back up?"
A: You can get your abdominal separation to heal even years later! It can be a little more challenging if you have been performing rectus abdominal exercises (6 -pack exercises).As with all abdominal separation healing methods, wearing a splint is just a piece of the recovery. Performing restorative exercises, strengthening obliques and hinging instead of rounding forward to pick up should be incorporated into your day.
Q: "How long should I wear the my abdominal binder?"
A: You can wear the splint 24/7 if you are 3 fingers or more separated. The abdominal binder should be worn for at least 60 days and can be taken off during and after meals.
Q: "Should I wear this running and exercising?"
A: YES! Definitely for running + yoga. You can even sleep in it.
