POSTPARTUM BELLY WRAP
I do a postpartum belly wrap with the new mother to acknowledge the transition to becoming a new mother. Because new mother are so open, it is a way of spiritually and physically being protected during this open time.
Belly wrapping is especially helpful in returning the abdominal organs to their rightful place, supporting the back and the abdominal muscles, especially if the mother has had backache or muscle separation during pregnancy.
