Recommended by Doctors, Midwives, Doulas and Physiotherapists, the Ab System has everything you need to Prepare, Recover and Restore so you CAN have core confidence for parenthood!
The Ab System was designed by a team of pelvic floor physiotherapists and postpartum pelvic floor fitness specialists.
BELLY WRAPPING PLAYS A ROLE IN:
Healing diastasis recti and encouraging re-alignment of the rectus muscles (the 6 pack)
Keeping the birthing parent warm (mother roasting)
Supporting the pelvis and the tissues in the abdominal wall
Guiding the postpartum person into restorative posture and alignment
Supporting the uterus in its return to its normal size (involution)
Providing comfort and support – especially after cesarean births
During Your Pregnancy:
Order the Ab System so that you can start the Core Confidence program during pregnancy and get to use your wrap right after giving birth
We have a based the sizing on you taking your measurements during pregnancy, ideally around 30 weeks.
After the Birth:
The wrap was designed to be worn immediately postpartum up to around 8 weeks, or until you have restored the ability to generate tension in your abdominal wall. A pelvic floor physiotherapist is an essential part of your recovery and will help determine this.
Use the Core Confidence program to restore your core.
You must wrap from the bottom up. (See the video below) Wrapping from top down will increase pressure on the uterus and pelvic organs causing a downward descent (prolapse)
You are aiming for a light compression (gentle hug) and allow for involution of the uterus. Too much compression will increase IAP (intra abdominal pressure) and compromise the pelvic floor
Belly wrapping alone is not enough – you must do the appropriate exercises to restore the core from the inside out. Better yet, we recommend you do core exercise while you are still pregnant to help prepare your core for birth.
Please do not purchase our product if your goal is to ‘flatten your abs’. Our garment is not a waist trainer but rather a pelvic and lower abdominal support wrap for postpartum recovery or temporary support in rehab movement under the guidance of a physiotherapist.
