Comfort After Birth is Possible With Postpartum Leggings

In this interview at The Bump, writer Megan Cahn went looking for "13 Best Postpartum Leggings to Support Recovery and Comfort", and she reached out to me about the benefits that postpartum leggings can present after birth. Here is an overview of the topic, with a link to the full article below.

Heather Jeffcoat, DPT

Bringing a new life into the world is a transformative chapter where a woman's body undergoes profound changes.

Maternity leggings provide comfort to one's growing bump, but postpartum leggings? They're like a full-body hug, providing the indispensable support and comfort your body craves as it gracefully heals.

In a recent interview with The Bump, I emphasized that:

"Pregnancy, a time when your blood volume can surge by as much as 50 percent, requires a bit of time to recalibrate postpartum.

Postpartum leggings, the unsung heroes for recovery, come to the rescue. They enhance lower limb circulation, alleviate the strain on your groin and pelvis, ease discomfort from c-section or vaginal delivery, help to support pesky lower back pain, and tenderly cradle your perineal and abdominal areas. As I pointed out,

"Postpartum brings with it a surge in progesterone, leading to swelling in your extremities. Postpartum leggings? They're the soothing balm, addressing both the swelling and the associated discomfort.

Now, you might be wondering: "What sets maternity leggings apart from their postpartum counterparts?" It's beautifully simple. Maternity leggings are designed to embrace the unique changes that come with pregnancy. In contrast, postpartum leggings are the supportive cocoon that welcomes and nurtures the changes that follow the miracle of childbirth.

Testimonial by Y.L. (mom of 2)

After having my second baby via C-section I searched for months to try to find help for my lower back pain and separated abdominal muscles. I finally came across Heather Jeffcoat via a mommy blog. I reached out to her via email and set my first appointment. My first appointment went amazing … she listened to what my symptoms, check my separation and explained to me in detail what the next steps would be. Not only did my abdominal separation go from 3 to about 1 -1/2 but my back has pain has significantly reduced. I’m personally recommending all my mommy friends to Heather!

Testimonial by S.B.

As someone who suffered the debilitating physical and emotional effects of vaginismus (as well as a complicated history of back injuries) for more than 15 years, I thought a "normal" life was just a fantasy. Then I found Heather.

Testimonial by Amanda W.

Heather's unique physical therapy program literally changed my life! After years of struggling with vaginismus, a condition that made it impossible for me to have intercourse and very difficult to use tampons without pain, a gynecologist referred me to Heather. I was nervous for my first appointment, but Heather's professional and friendly demeanor put me at ease. She did a great job explaining each technique she was using to help my muscles relax. Heather uses a combination of internal and external stretches and exercises to relax the pelvic floor and build muscle strength. Her specially developed home program helped me quickly recover from an issue that seemed insurmountable before meeting Heather. She was optimistic about my progress and incredibly encouraging. Less than 6 months after my first session, I was able to have pain-free sex for the first time in my life! If you are suffering from vaginismus or any other pelvic floor issues, I highly recommend making an appointment with Heather and reading her book!

Testimonial by R.M., Age 40

I can’t speak highly enough of the theapists at Femina Physical Therapy and how much they have helped me grow, discover, and love my body. I had had painful sex for my entire life, and didn’t know that there was anything that could be done about it. It was at the point where my husband and I were not having sex for MONTHs, because it was just too frustrating, and I hated feeling like I was the ONLY woman out there who had this problem, especially at my age. I finally brought it up to my doctor because I was turning 40 and my husband and I were barely having enough sex to conceive. And she brought up pelvic floor, PT. I didn’t even know this was a “thing”.

I just wanted to thank you for everything you've done for me for the past 19 months. I literally could not have reached my goals without you and your practice. You gave me the courage to keep moving forth with my treatment no matter how afraid and anxious I was. You were always there to answer questions and made this whole process so much easier than I expected it to be.

It's because of you that my marriage is on the right track, that I can get pregnant and that this part of my life is finally over. I really feel that Fusion Wellness is a team of people you can call family and are there to root for you and cheer you on until you reach your goals. There is nothing better than knowing I accomplished this with you guys by my side and as calmly and patiently as I needed. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for always being there and helping me reach my goals.

Testimonial by Mary L.

I started seeing Heather to treat my Interstitial Cystitis in November 2016. At this time, I was extremely miserable, in constant pain, and felt as though no one was listening or understood what was going on with my body. I have just finished my last appointment and I can honestly say that my life has completely changed for the better because of Heather and her team of PTs! I live almost completely pain free, and when I do have flare ups, I am able to treat them at home on my own. I am so grateful that this office was recommended to me a honestly cannot recommend them enough!
