Your precious little one is finally here! You may be wondering why you still have back and abdominal pain even though your pregnant belly is gone. Just as gravity in your mid-section changed while you were pregnant, it also is changing now that you have given birth. Your abdominal core is extremely weak right now since you have not been using those muscles in the past nine months.
Low-impact exercise is a good way to deal with post-pregnancy back pain, but since your abdominal muscles are going to take some time to heal, using a postpartum support can help support and ease the pain. Whether you had a natural birth or a C-Section, its firm yet gentle support comforts your tummy as it heals.
