How do compression garments work to promote

post-pregnancy recovery


1. Activate Muscles

SRC Recovery Leggings have been specifically designed to activate muscles they are in contact with. Gentle continuous compression is key so as not to tire your muscle over time.

2. Reduce Swelling

Graduated gentle leg compression promotes good venous return. Continuous gentle compression to the abdomen, perineum and back activate muscle and stimulate venous return which helps reduce fluid in those areas.

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. We recommend wearing 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. Our 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.

Case Study -

Post C-section Recovery

& Diastasis Rectus Abdominus (DRA) - Physiotherapist - Kylie Patterson

Sarah, 36, was seen pre-natally for the entire duration of her pregnancy for clinical Pilates exercise as she had found it useful in maintaining strength and pelvic floor muscle control in her previous pregnancy (George, now 2). The pregnancy was uncomplicated and George was delivered vaginally after a 4 hour labour. SARAH sustained one small tear so no issues were anticipated for the upcoming delivery. She had recovered well post natally again continuing with a regular weekly clinical Pilates appointment.

She contacted the clinic 3 days after delivery to advise that Dimitri had been delivered via emergency cesarean and she would now have to wait for 6 weeks before being able to re-attend any exercise sessions.

Her main concern was being able to maintain and regain the strength of her lumbo-pelvic muscles and pelvic floor. Sarah reported that the physiotherapist at the hospital checked her rectus abdominis diastasis (abdominal muscle separation) and found a 3 finger width separation.

As Sarah would be unable to exercise for six weeks to prevent any issues with the wound site, I recommended that she purchase and wear SRC Recovery Leggings as the compression that the garment provides I have found to improve wound healing and dramatically reduce the diastasis rectus abdominis (DRA) at a faster rate than without compression. Clients can go from as much as a 4 finger width separation down to 2 finger width in as little as 8 weeks wearing the garment.

When I reviewed Sarah at 7 weeks post natal her Diastasis Rectus Abdominus (DRA) measured 1.5 finger widths and the wound had healed well with minimal discomfort after the 4th post natal week. We resumed her clinical pilates regime at that time and Sarah continued to wear the SRC Recovery Leggings and attend weekly sessions with exercises focussed on pelvic floor, transverses abdominus and rectus abdominis closure. 4 months after wearing the SRC Recovery Leggings the Diastasis Rectus Abdominus (DRA) was reduced to less than a finger width.}
