Maternity and Postpartum Support
Women will often decide how and when to wear a maternity support garment based on how it feels on them. This is based on the recommendations by healthcare providers to help reduce some pregnancy aches and pains. These flexible support garments may provide many benefits to active women who are pregnant, especially during the second and third trimesters. However, some maternity support garments are worn after delivery during the postpartum period for a brief time as mom’s body readjusts to their pre-pregnancy clothing.
PELVIC SACRAL SUPPORT BELT
Gently reduces pressure upon the lower back while providing extra support underneath to help cradle the belly; improves general posture and assists muscles around lumbar; reduces the likelihood of uterine prolapsed.
POSTPARTUM CARE STRUT SYSTEM
THE MAMA STRUT DIFFERENCE – WHY STRUT?
- a structural piece designed to resist pressure
- to walk with a proud gait
Mama Strut brings clinically proven Sports Medicine Technology to mama care. Mama Strut is the only product available to mamas that supports all sides of the pelvis and incorporates therapeutic heat and ice to target postpartum pain, swelling, bleeding and pressure. Mama Strut was specifically designed for mamas by a mama of 3 and has been validated by medical professionals as well as many mama users. Until now, new mamas have been given little more than narcotics and messy icing solutions for after birth and no support for the tired or damaged muscles, connective tissue and skin of the pelvic floor.
The average pregnancy and birth costs between $15,000 to over $60,000 and less than $10 of that is spent on products that naturally support the postpartum healing process. Mama Strut believes a new mama needs and deserves better than the status quo. Make sure you get your strut back with the most advanced care available.
Mama Strut knows that every delivery and every postpartum is different and that is why Mama Strut is adjustable to accommodate the unique needs of a new mama. Whether you have a vaginal birth or a c-section, many stitches, no stitches, pro-lapse or hemorrhoids, Mama Strut’s multi-directional and adjustable straps combined with the secure yet removable hot/cold gel packs will have you covered. Bring your Mama Strut in your hospital bag and have peace of mind that your aches and pains will have the best possible care and support available. What size Mama Strut is right for me?

What Will My Postpartum Size Be?
Most women will still appear pregnant for a period of time after giving birth while the body starts to heal so you may have trouble at first closing your properly sized Mama Strut but if you purchased the correct size you should be able to get it closed without it being too constricting.
Ideally, you want to put Mama Strut on immediately after delivery to maximize benefits from the cold/compression therapy. Depending on your water retention, you will be easily closing the Mama Strut within hours or days and cinching it smaller and smaller across your abdomen as your uterus shrinks and soft tissue swelling heals and reduces.
Although everybody is different, many mamas report losing about 3-5 inches right after delivery on their abdomen. We size Mama Strut at the top of your hips right under your baby bump. It is not necessary to measure the widest part of your hips. Although you may feel like your hips continue to grow, after about 34 weeks that measurement usually does not change, so you can size anytime during or after the 34th week.
Sally is 36 weeks pregnant and Sally’s hips (at the top of her pubic bone, as depicted in the image above) measure 36″. Pre-pregnancy, Sally wore a size 4-6 pants and stayed within the generally recommended 25-35 lb. weight gain during pregnancy. Sally buys a Mama Strut size Small.
Laura is 38 weeks pregnant and has a hip measurement of 42″. Pre-pregnancy, Laura purchased pants in a size large. Laura purchases a size Large Mama Strut because she is at the top of the size chart for a medium and large is consistent with her pre-pregnancy size.
