Belly binding is a centuries-old practice that physically and symbolically helps to restore a woman's body to the non-pregnant state. Benefits of belly binding can include:
- Faster shrinking of the uterus
- Repair or diminishing of the diastasis recti, a space between the abdominal muscles that occurs due to pregnancy in many women
- Decreased back pain
- Increased support for the abdominal muscles and internal organs, particularly in women who have had more than one pregnancy
- A more unique fit and better breathability than traditional medical abdominal binders
Chicago Birth & Baby will come over one time to demonstrate and perform belly binding, leaving you with instructions on how to do it thereafter. The service includes a cotton muslin binder.
Belly Binding Fee: $125
