Hpfy Article Image

Joys of motherhood are overwhelming for every woman. The postpartum period is the most crucial time for both the mother and the newborn. While a mother bonds with the newborn, she also grapples with several hormonal, physical and emotional changes. As her body starts reversing to how it was pre-pregnancy, several challenges may be encountered. Some of them could be the increased weight, C-section scar, stretch marks, sagging breasts, abdominal flab, varicose veins, and melasma.

We look at the use of appropriate maternity aids to ease out the process of postpartum recovery. They also boost a woman’s self-esteem and confidence as her body shape begins to normalize.

What are the Postpartum problems and their appropriate remedies?

1. Stretch oil and belly balm

Stretch marks appear on the abdomen and sometimes even on the hips, thighs, buttocks, and breasts. Nearly, 90 percent of pregnant women get stretch marks. Though the C-section scar heals on its own, use of certain gels and cream improves its appearance.

The Earth Angel Baby Natural Stretch Oil, is a blend of herb-infused oils. These include calendula, jojoba, borage and blossom pure essential oils. Its application during pregnancy and postpartum eases the appearance of stretch marks. Rub it on the abdomen, hips, thighs, and breasts. Light and easily absorbable, it nourishes and encourages skin’s natural elasticity. Apply it as a moisturizer after a shower. It can even be used when not pregnant.

The Wiseways Herbal Beautiful Belly Balm can also be rubbed on a pregnant belly to keep it supple and moisturized.

2. Postpartum girdle

The postpartum girdle or the post-pregnancy shapewear, compresses the abdomen, backside, and hips, giving the mother a shapely look. It is also helpful in returning back to shape as it helps the belly and uterus to shrink back to their pre-pregnancy size. A girdle even holds the muscles and skin in place, thereby, promoting better posture. Wearing a postpartum girdle aids in C-section recovery by relieving the swelling in the abdominal area and limiting tissue movement. It is also an excellent support for the back. Their most important uses are:

  • Relieves aches and pains in the lower back, hip, pelvis, and sciatica pain in the legs;
  • Reduces stretch marks;
  • Improves posture;
  • Provides gentle compression during prenatal exercises;
  • Special support for pregnant women suffering from hernias;
  • Useful postpartum as well when the stretched and strained muscles and ligaments require time to heal.

The Gabrialla Abdominal and Back Support Girdle offers the best of both medical functionality and looks and comfort. It firms up the body and improves its look, shape, and feel. It also provides excellent abdominal and back support. Its utility is further enhanced by the ease of its wearability as an underclothing because of its breathable lace elastic material. One can find it in different sizes.

3. Maternity Nursing Bra

The maternity nursing bra provides maximum support and comfort both during pregnancy and postpartum. They are made with extra stretch in the cup and grow with the woman’s changing shape. They are available in different styles and sizes. During pregnancy, most women like to wear the underwire nursing bra. Then there are the comfort nursing bras which are less structured. Women find them very useful during pregnancy as well as during their entire nursing journey. Sleep bras are excellent for nighttime nursing. They allow the breast to come out by moving the fabric over to the outside of the breast.
