After birthing two big babies in less than sixteen months, it is safe to say that my body did not spring back into position like I’d hoped it would. Besides the jelly belly and need to cross my legs as soon as a sneeze beckoned, I had a bad case of Diastasis Recti (abdominal separation). Under the guidance of an excellent physiotherapist, I used compression therapy to give my post partum recovery a helping hand and I’m so thankful I did.
Mammahood is an Australian company that believes mother care is just as important as baby care. They specialise in creating compression garments to help mothers recover from pregnancy and birth so they feel their best and can be their best for bub.
The benefits of compression for post partum recovery have been recognised in some countries for centuries, but Australian mothers are only just beginning to embrace this practice. Gentle compression of the abdominal area after birth can help minimise swelling, decrease bloating, increase blood flow, assist in cases of Diastasis Recti and even help minimise stretch marks.
While an uncomfortable corset was worn in centuries past, Mammahood has embraced new technology to design comfortable singlet tops with targeted compression to the areas where a mamma’s body needs it most – the front abdominals, sides and lower back.
Mammahood’s compression garments are made from nylon and spandex so they are soft to the touch, but tough on bumps and bulges to accelerate the process of healing, whilst giving support to the back and enhancing core muscle strength.
Designed by mothers, the compression range is called Mammabumps and includes stylish tops that are seamless and uber modern. Available in black, white or nude, there is a regular compression singlet or a breastfeeding-friendly option.
Mammahood also makes clever nursing scarves that convert to a breastfeeding shawl. Made from natural bamboo and spandex, the ends simply button together at five different levels for discreet feeding in public. Belly binders are another popular product in the Mammahood range. They provide tighter and more superior compression for extra abdominal support. Simply adjust the intensity of the compression with the velcro fasteners.
As soon as your bub is born, they rightly steal the limelight but don’t let it be at the expense of your own health and recovery. A breastfeeding top from Mammahood is something you can do for you that won’t take any time or attention away from the new love of your life.
