The Belly Warmer (or cooler!) is here for your postpartum healing. 

Apply the Belly Warmer on your abdomen for cramping pains or to provide comfort over your incision if you had a c-section. Applying warmth to your abdomen helps your womb go back to size. The Belly Warmer can also be used in any part of your body that may feel sore or painful.

The Belly Warmer can actually also be used cold. This is ideal to calm down any postpartum swelling. 

The Belly Warmer is filled with flax seed and lavender essential oils. We specifically chose flax seed because it can be reheated time and time again, can be put in the freezer and retains its' heat or coolness longer than any other natural alternative. The lavender essential oils brings calm to your postpartum space.

The Belly Warmer was made specifically to fit nicely inside the Ab Wrap with out causing too much bulk, but providing a secure spot to wear it for as long as you need.

Sorry, ONLY AVAILABLE TO CANADIAN BUYERS due to exportation restrictions on seeds.

The Belly Warmer is made exclusively by The Relaxation Hut in Langley, British Columbia.

    why belly wrap?

    • Supports your pelvis as well as the tissues in your abdominal wall
    • Provides comfort and support (especially after cesarean births)
    • Help to heal diastasis recti when done in combination with the Core Confidence Program
    • Encourages re-alignment of the rectus muscles (your '6 pack')
    • Keeps your birthing body warm (aka the tradition of 'mother roasting')
    • Guides your postpartum body into restorative posture and alignment
    • Supports your uterus in its return to its normal size (involution)
    • Improves circulation
    • Encourages rest!

    during your pregnancy

    after the birth

    how to use the ab wrap

    This video will guide you through placing the Ab Wrap comfortably and effectively.
    Please reach out to us if you have any questions at all!

    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 can be an essential part of your recovery and will help determine this.

    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 should do the appropriate exercises to restore the core from the inside out. Better yet, we recommend you do the Core Confidence exercises while you are still pregnant to help prepare your core for birth.

     

    how to wear the ab tank

    The Ab Tank is a gentle supportive top that we recommend as the base layer underneath the Ab Wrap. Two tanks are included in our Ab System and is also sold separately.

    The Ab Tank is designed to fit underneath the bust to allow for easy breastfeeding / feeding from the body. We've made it extra long so that it fits over the newly postpartum belly and doesn’t ride up.

    • Wear alone, or combine with the Ab Wrap during recovery
    • For the first week or so after your cesarean, this tank is the perfect support over your incision. Add the Ab Wrap in the second week or so.
    • Very breast/chest feeding friendly. It's low cut allows for easy access to feed - or just have some skin-to-skin cuddles!
    • Continue to wear as a comfortable layering piece with gentle shaping features.
    • For many the Ab Tank becomes an on-going layering piece due to its comfort, and gentle shaping features.
