These Two Postpartum Binder Brands Are Recommended By C-Section Moms!
  • Every birth story is unique. While every pregnant moms would usually wish for a normal delivery, no one knows whether they will undergo an emergency C-section.

    Just like Jennylyn Mercado, who recently gave birth to baby D via C-section after her routine check-up! 

    When I gave birth via emergency Caesarean section in 2019, I didn't know that I would need a postpartum abdominal binder. So my husband resorted to the blue binder that was available in the hospital's pharmacy at the time. 

    That's when you will appreciate being part of support groups for expecting moms and parents like the Smart Parenting Village.

    A pregnant mom asked for recommendations on what postpartum binder to buy. She says, she is scheduled to give birth via Caesarean section soon, and she is looking for an alternative to the blue binder.

    "Any suggested postnatal binder please. I-CS po ako next week. Na try ko kasi ung blue binder na makapal during my first CS nasasaktan ako. Thanks in advance po."

    Abdominal binders are proven by moms to help them in their postpartum recovery, in more ways than one

    If the question is, which is the best abdominal binder out there, C-section moms there are only two brands leading in this field.
