Cezara, The Belly Support Panty:
Comfortable, adjustable belly and back support for after a Cesarean. Cushions and compresses the Cesarean site, lifts the belly away from the scar. Pregnant Women who have undergone a prior Cesarean section differ anatomically from those women who previously delivered vaginally and they often experience more discomfort in subsequent pregnancies. Potential post–operative complications usually take the form of external or internal scar tissue with possible abdominal adhesion. The level of discomfort caused by constant pressure on this scarred tissue is related to the amount of scar tissue, as well as to its placement in the abdomen. The accompanying pain becomes more pronounced and exacerbated with the physical pressures of subsequent pregnancies.
Additional discomfort can take the form of irritation and increased pressure on the external scar; Inflammation resulting from the moisture build up on the scar, additional back stress occasioned by weight of the pregnant or post-partum belly and weekend state of the abdominal muscles; The weight of the post-partum belly or new pregnancy stresses internal scar tissue. This increased discomfort is especially common in larger pregnant and /or post- Cesarean patients. The Cezara Belly support panty addresses these comfort issues. It is designed for all moms, but especially for the larger pregnant mom who has had a previous Cesarean or is having one for the first time.
