SRC Health Recovery Leggings Black Large
The SRC Recovery leggings provide you with the support to move more freely post-delivery and make lifting, feeding, bathing and caring for your baby much easier.
SRC Recovery leggings assist in speeding up recovery after pregnancy by addressing the 3 most common and important conditions post birth:
1. Abdominal Muscle Separation (DRAM)
2. C-Section and Perineal Trauma / Stitches and
3. Low Back Pain
How do compression garments work to promote post-pregnancy recovery?
1. Activate Muscles
The unique SRC garment technology promotes muscle stimulation and activation by providing gentle compression / light pressure to the pelvis, back and abdominal muscles. This is not possible if you choose a corset, girdle, or rigid support garment. From day 1 you can be confident in the knowledge that your SRC Recovery shorts are doing their job even when you’re not active.
2. Reduce Swelling
Fitting like a second skin, the gentle compression helps you get mobile sooner after both a vaginal or C-section delivery.
3. Reduces Pain and Provide Wound Support
Constant gentle compression to any wound either C-Section or perineal decreased swelling which in turn decreases pain.
Why are SRC Recovery Leggings recommended by Health Care Professionals?
SRC Recovery Leggings have all the same attributes of the SRC Recovery Shorts but with an extended leg length to the ankle. SRC Recovery Shorts were designed in consultation with a leading obstetrician/gynaecologist Dr. Grant Saffer. The compression garment can be worn to comfort from day 1 after both a vaginal or C-section delivery. It is recommended to wear these for 8-10 week or as long as you feel the need.
All SRC compression products feature superior fabrics which are specially milled and rigorously tested before any product is manufactured. The fabrics therefore are of superior quality and deliver sustained compression over time.
Achieving Optimal Results
Start wearing your SRC Recovery Leggings as soon as you feel able post delivery. Shoud they feel uncomfortable due to fluid retention please remove them and try again the following day.
Please be advised that if you have had stitches to the perineal area following a vaginal delivery you should change your maternity pad every 2 hours. DO NOT wear a pad that has a plastic backing. This may cause the area to sweat which will increase the risk of infection. Wash the area with salt water and dry well following each pad change. Wear your recovery leggings during the day only while your perineal stitches are healing. Once the area is fully healed you can wear them both day and night.
Your Leggings can be worn 24 hours. The longer you wear them over a 24 hour period the more activation your muscles will receive.
