Postpartum Splinting Guidelines

By Kelly Dean

Have you considered using an abdominal rehab splint immediately postpartum? Did you know that most cultures around the world do some form of splinting or "belly binding" in the initial postpartum stage? There can be a lot of misunderstandings about postpartum splinting but it actually can be a crucial component of birth recovery. I actually train midwives, OB's and other birth professionals in how to use splints with their clients so that moms can feel supported immediately after delivery. Check out this resource from our professional prenatal course to learn why.
