My labor was traumatic and made my muslces and insides feel very weak after sore after delivery. I started wearing the Angelica Abominal Recovery garment within the first week because my doctor recommended I wear some type of support. Nothing I found was as comfortable and supportive as this garment, most were plain belly binders. I feel so much better when wearing the Angelica and feel supported in my entire tummy and lower back too. My recovery has improved so much over my first pregnancy and I'd recommend new mothers invest in a recovery garment from Body After Baby, you'll be happy you did!
