After a healthy and relatively problem free pregnancy, at the age of 41, I had an emergency c-section birth. I was unprepared for my c-section recovery. I had planned to have a home birth with a midwife and was at home until it was clear I had to go to the hospital. When I got home, I quickly began wrapping an ace bandage around my abdomen to bind my stomach. I knew I needed abdominal bindingt after a surgery like a cesarean. Using my 20+ years of massage, bodywork and healing education, I began an intuitive program of self care for my cesarean incision. Then just a few months later, I was caring for my dying mother who had undergone abdominal surgery. From these life changing experiences, I learned first hand the scarcity of knowledge and tools to help in post cesarean and abdominal surgery care. The ideas for the AbdoMend™ healing products grew out of these experiences. Now it’s my wish that every woman and abdominal surgery patient enjoy the benefits of the Abdomend™ binding belts and the Hemming Scar Therapy program.

Belly binding is an ancient healing tool for Cesarean Section recovery, and post partum abdominal support. Compression from c-section support bands, brings fibers together, reduces swelling and tearing and at the same time offers some protection for the incision. Soft abdominal binders help support the changing body through pregnancy, vaginal delivery & Cesarean Section recovery. Health and well being for the mom and child are of the utmost importance. That is why I created the Abdomend™ c-section binders, and this site. Here, and on our blog, you will find a wealth of information and resources for healthy c-section recovery, c-section healing and support.

You deserve abdominal binder support and protection at this special time during your c-section recovery. The ancient healing art of using a postpartum abdominal binder is less well known today than in other cultures. Abdomend™ offers two different binding belts. The Support belt is a perfect c-section support band for after c-section delivery. The Hem It In binder is a postpartum belly wrap, for after vaginal birth and later stages of c-section recovery, or an abdominal binder after laparoscopic surgery. They have different purposes at different times, please check which one will best meet your needs.
