Your Letters

Mariko, you were right! The size 3 was perfect.  Thank you for all your help.  The empathetic approach you take with helping your customers is rare these days.  I feel like I have gained a friend through this whole postpartum girdle shopping experience.  I could not have gone through this alone. See you at the beach in an itsy bitsy bikini! Marianne F. Long Beach, CA

I had my baby 9 weeks ago and I’ve just returned to work. I had a c-section and still feel uncomfortable in my own skin. I feel like my stomach is hanging out and my c-section scar is still sensitive. Will any of your products still help me?

Congratulations on the birth of your child!  I know from firsthand experience that 9 weeks postpartum, especially following a cesarean delivery, things are far from normal. And guess what, you and I are not alone either.  Many women lack the sense of “held-togetherness” that they may have taken for granted before pregnancy and delivery.

If I Didn’t Have a C-Section, Are There Any Benefits From Wearing One Of Your Products?

Congratulations on the birth of your child!  Women who give birth vaginally face an entirely different set of challenges than women who give birth by Cesarean Section.  During pregnancy, labor, and birth, the symphysis pubis, where the right and left sides of the hips meet near the vaginal area, separates to varying degrees with the ultimate goal of passing a child from the uterus through the birth canal. Postpartum, some women can suffer a longer term, abnormal separation of the symphysis pubis resulting in pelvic girdle pain.

Toss The Belly Band; Give The Postpartum Girdle A Try.

I had a new mother in for a fitting today that was 4 weeks postpartum and had been using a belly wrap since delivery.  Initially the belly wrap offered some support but, after losing the majority of her pregnancy weight gain, she found it rather bulky under her pre-pregnancy clothing. I could see the belly binder wasn’t doing mom’s figure any justice. After losing her pregnancy weight she wanted to show off her body, not cover up to hide the belly wrap.

Seeing Is Believing!

I had a new mom come in for a garment fitting today.  She delivered a healthy 7 pound baby girl on September 5th 2009. Mom was in labor for 3 days before her doctor decided to do a C-section.  As you can imagine, this was quite a traumatic labor and delivery. She was almost 4 weeks postpartum but still looked about 5-6 months pregnant because her abdominal muscles were so weak.  As of this morning, she was still having a difficult time getting in and out of bed.  In fact, she used a little pillow to apply pressure on her incision to make it less painful when she got up.

Can a postpartum body support garment help reduce my Cesarean scar?

Today, Cesarean scars are far smaller and heal faster than what our mothers may have experienced.  A typical Cesarean incision is approximately 4-6” long and is placed horizontally across the bikini line.  Although, the resulting scar is usually very small and easily concealed, many women are concerned with how visible their Cesarean scar may be.

Other than slimming down my post pregnancy belly, what are the other benefits I can expect from wearing a Design Veronique postpartum body support girdle?

During pregnancy and delivery women face extraordinary physiological changes.  If that’s not challenging enough, after delivering a child, we are instantly expected to look after a newborn baby around the clock - and more often than not, the rest of the family, too.

I had a C-section and was sent home from the hospital with a binder. It’s been two weeks, what’s next? This thing is bulky and shows, but I still like the support.

I’ve had two c-sections and don’t know how I would have survived the first couple weeks without my binder! I agree the binders can be bulky and that’s the last thing you want to show off. It’s time for a postpartum support garment that is easy to conceal under any outfit whether you're wearing sweats, jeans, or a dress!

Your Letters

Hello Mariko, I wanted to thank you for all your time and guidance. When I went to my 6-week postpartum appointment today, I was asked about my support garment. The Doctor was very impressed and took the company's name, along with yours, and wanted to keep it as a resource for new mothers and colleagues.
