The shift that takes place after birth in the postpartum period is positive and natural but that doesn’t always mean it’s easy. In fact, research shows that over 80% of new moms experience some form of postnatal mood disorders ranging from the baby blues to postpartum depression.
The placenta nourishes the baby and controls maternal hormones during pregnancy. After the birth, when the body no longer needs this organ, it is expelled, which leaves the body in a bit of a hormonal shock.
Custom fit beautiful belly binds are a way to honor the mother’s body and help the body recover. The belly bind offers 360 degree support to assist the abdominal wall muscles retraction, improve posture, stabilize loose ligaments, and provide support to the torso while vital organs return to the pre-pregnancy size and position. It is known to help heat diastasis recti with the constant supportive pressure on the abdominal area.
The bind is TIGHT and will hold your body firmly. This wrapping can be done 5 days postpartum for vaginal births and after 6 weeks for cesarean births. Binds can be worn every days for up to 40 days.
Nantucket Mother Blessings
A Mother Blessing is a ceremony offered to expectant mothers as a way of honoring the passage into Motherhood. Unlike a traditional baby shower, where gifts are purchased for the baby, a Mother Blessing is all about nurturing the mother-to-be.
A Mother Blessing involves a gathering of the mother-to-be’s most trusted friends and family. Traditionally it is a woman-only gathering and may include anyone she respects, looks up to or values.
It is a way to create community and help the mother to be feel ‘held’ and supported by those she loves and respects and to allow her to embrace what’s to come.
