Post Partum Tip
I haven't always done these but have been reading about how good they are for improving posture and strengthening the tone in your belly shortly after giving birth. It's something midwives throughout the centuries would do to women as a service. It feels a bit like a tight corset. Not that I'd know what one feels like. But while sitting at the computer and throughout the day, I've started doing this in order to remind me to engage in my core. You can have it on while feeding and nursing, doing dishes, etc. In many cultures today, it is actually considered a sad disservice to not wrap and bind a new mother. It was thought to be a caring gesture back when midwives were unpaid for the divine work they did.
