BELLY BINDING

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
