Ebay was my best friend over the course of my pregnancy. From purchasing high waisted belly tights to pregnancy belly support. I ordered a pregnancy belly support every trimester. They felt good. They supported my back, my growing belly and just felt like someone else was carrying my stomach for me. Ebay is amazing but also dangerous. Having done no research and just jumped on to buy the cheapest pregnancy belly support I could find; I was doing it all wrong. After everything I know now about diastasis recti, prevention strategies and proper treatment, I am surprised the pregnancy belly support didn’t give me back pain or cause other issues.
I look back and cringe at the pregnancy belly support that I was wearing. It was more of a compression binder than a proper pregnancy belly support and was not helping to take the stretch off the connective tissue at all. In fact, it was probably doing the opposite.
So, with so many products out there, where do you actually go to get a supportive, certified, educated and proper pregnancy belly support that is actually going to aid in the reduction of diastasis recti and all the associated symptoms? No Mummy Tummy.
As part of the No Mummy Tummy programs, they require clients to wear a certified pregnancy belly support, known as the Diastasis Recti Abdominal Splint. The purpose of this pregnancy belly support is to position the connective tissue closer together to promote the healing process. It takes the stretch off the stretched connective tissue- or prevents a stretch by placing the recti muscles in the correct position.
As part of the No Mummy Tummy program, the pregnancy belly support is part of a four-part program- rather but can be purchased as a stand-alone product for pregnant women.
The No Mummy Tummy programs are suitable for pregnant and post-pregnant women. The pregnancy belly support is suitable for pregnant women from their second trimester and post-pregnant mums. I fitted a mum with a pregnancy belly support in her second trimester. It eliminated her back pain, corrected her posture and took some pressure off her pelvic floor, abdominal wall and made it much more enjoyable throughout the later of her pregnancy. Without the pregnancy belly support, she would have been in so much pain, and all over uncomfortable. Following her pregnancy, she actually reported limited separation and no effects on her back, pelvic floor or stomach. She still wears the pregnancy belly support to this day.
