To get back to her radiant, confident self and be able to focus on her new little one, a new mom should know what to wear after a C-section. Overall, she needs comfortable, convenient clothes and compression garments that are not too tight and make breastfeeding easy.
Post C-section underwear offers just the right amount of comfortable support a new mom needs. For women looking to get back in shape after a pregnancy, post C-section underwear is highly recommended. C-section girdles are also ideal for many other procedures, such as a hysterectomy.

After a vaginal birth or C-section, a new mom’s uterus can shed its lining for several weeks.

Look for a wide non-slip banding that sits above the C-section incision and broad enough to support large postpartum pads. For accidental leaking and spotting, stick with dark colors, too.
