Q:

Hi pls suggest what is the use of wearing Abdominal belt after C sec..It's been 45 days if my c section, should I wear the belt now?



Sheeba Vijesh

My doctor and physiotherapist said belts are of no use, except that it gives a satisfaction to the wearer. I had c-section and did not wear a belt, and except for a little fat(which is my weight gain) there is not much of a difference of my pre-pregnancy tummy...

Dr.Srujana Kona( PT)

Hi, no need to use any belt. Unnecessary use of belt will give flabby tummy. Visit physiotherapist nearer to you. She will assess ur abdominal muscle power and teach you exercises which you can practice at home. And we have to check whether is there any gap in the abdominal muscles, before performing any tummy exercises. So please try to see a physiotherapist.
