Congratulations, mama! You've just created this perfect little human, and your body has undergone an incredible transformation. As you settle into your new life with your newborn, we understand that you may also wish to restore your core strength and further embrace your postpartum body.

That's where the Ab Wrap comes in – a wonderful tool designed to support your postpartum body. In this article, we'll delve into the benefits and how it can assist you in your recovery journey.

What are the benefits of belly wrapping during postpartum?

Helps Rebuild Your Core:

After childbirth, your abdominal muscles may feel stretched and strained. When left untreated, this could eventually lead to potential back pain and posture issues, among other things. This is where the Ab Wrap comes to the rescue. Unlike most other wraps on the market, the Ab Wrap was developed by a team of pelvic floor physiotherapists and specialists to ensure it properly supports your abdominal muscles as well as your pelvic floor.

Encourages Proper Alignment:

During pregnancy, your body undergoes significant changes in its alignment and posture. 

The gentle compression of the wrap offers a "hug" to your midsection, offering support to the muscles and ligaments that may feel weak from pregnancy. This added support can also aid in improving posture and reducing lower back pain. 

As you go about your day, your alignment plays a crucial role in making sure your body works efficiently and minimizes future injuries.

Helps to heal diastasis recti:

One common concern for many new moms is diastasis recti, a condition where the abdominal muscles separate during pregnancy. The Ab Wrap can be a game-changer in this process. Its gentle yet effective compression provides targeted support to the abdominal area, encouraging the muscles to come back together gradually. By wearing the Ab Wrap consistently, you can promote proper alignment and encourage the healing of diastasis recti. 

Promotes healing and recovery 

While Western cultures often fail to recognize the value of rest and healing for postpartum mothers, other cultures go to great lengths to encourage better recovery. One of these practices is to use warmth, also known as “Mother Roasting”.

In the first six to eight weeks after giving birth, this ritual is intended to keep the mother's body warm to promote faster healing. The postpartum wrap embraces the wisdom of mother roasting by supporting, healing and warming your postpartum belly.

A Holistic Approach to Core Strength:

While the Ab Wrap can play a significant role in your postpartum recovery, it's important to remember that it is just one piece of the puzzle. Combining it with a holistic approach to wellness will help give you the best results. Make sure you nourish your body with good nutrition and engage in gentle core exercises (like those included with the Ab wrap).


There’s no doubt that childbirth is one of the most life-changing events in a woman’s life, both physically and emotionally. Belly wrapping works in partnership with your body to aid in healing a provide extra support. 

With the Ab Wrap by your side, you can take positive steps towards healing diastasis recti and reclaiming a strong, functional core. Remember, be patient with your body and celebrate each small step forward on your healing journey. You got this mama!
