It’s usually not until you give birth to your firstborn that you begin to realize how very right your mom is... about everything. Where once you yeah-yeah’d her to no end, you’ll suddenly find yourself hanging on her every word. Are you surprised? She had babies once too, you know. She’ll have secret tips on soothing your baby that not even Dr.Karp knows and she’ll have suggestions on getting you whipped back into one human piece that are incredibly necessary considering the fact that you may feel like you’re in a million post-birth.

One of those pieces advice we keep hearing from our mothers -- and our friends’ mothers and their friends’ mothers -- is the power of the girdle and the effect it has on your body. Wearing a compression garment can speed the loss of excess water and helps return the internal organs to their proper places within the abdomen. It also gives the abdominal muscles the support they need to snap back to their original shape. The folks at Bellefit call this the “The Bellefit Effect.” And this week you’ll have the opportunity to get your hands on this sage mama secret plus a plentiful package of Bellefit product you didn’t know existed.

What makes Bellefit products so special? The beauty behind Bellefit medical-grade postpartum support garments is that they provide a greater stability for the body after delivery. The compression garments work by drawing in stretched muscles to provide a 360° support structure around the torso, thus, reducing strain on ligaments and joints in the lower back, pelvis and buttocks. Reducing stress in these areas enhances your body’s ability to return to its pre-pregnancy alignment and shape, and to lose the post-baby tummy faster. As shifted and constrained organs return to their pre-pregnancy locations during the first few weeks after c-section or natural childbirth, Bellefit girdles hold you in place allowing for movement with greater confidence.

So whichever kind of birth you end up with, Bellefit has benefits for all. And this week our new friends at Bellefit are giving away a package worth almost $500 to one lucky mama-to-be! No, that’s not all in girdles. Bellefit provides you with maternity essentials -- from shapewear to nursing pajamas -- that will help you through all of the stages of your pregnancy and recovery.
