I have Been recently diagnosed with a bladder prolapse. I started researching prolapse and have found some forums that discussed A relationship between belly binders/postpartum girdles and prolapse. What are your thoughts on this?
Now that I think about it, I have noticed that the bulging gets worse when I wear it. I’m only two weeks postpartum and have decided to stop wearing it. I’m hoping I can reverse some of the symptoms by doing so along with your DVD. I will be calling a specialist this coming week. What are your thoughts on this as well?
Thank you in advance!
I like compression below your hip bones (I used low rise triathlon shorts), but a belly binder above your hip bones is compressing the soft tissue and depending on the amount of compression, will force pressure down on your pelvic floor.
Read through the Education section on Pelvic Basket Muscles. Your very own TA muscle is your own belly binder. It squeezes like a son cone as it flutes up, opening up as it wraps around your pelvic and abdominal contents. It is tightest down within your pelvic bowl and widens as it continues to wraps, closing in soft tissue up to your ribs.
