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 Mini length 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

SRC compression garments provide gentle compression to a wound area. Whether you have had a C-section delivery or stitches/tears to the perineum, the SRC Recovery shorts Mini Length reduce wound swelling and pain and promote a faster and safer recovery .

Why are SRC Recovery Shorts Mini Length recommended by Health Care Professionals?

SRC Recovery Shorts Mini Length have been designed in consultation with obstetrician Dr. Grant Saffer. Anatomically designed support panels fit with the natural curves of the female anatomy whilst delivering consistent gentle medical grade compression at 4-15mmHg. The garment delivers exceptional fit and maximum support without any feeling of restriction. Designed for use in the first 8-10 weeks after delivery they can be worn for as long as they provide benefit, and many women continue to wear their recovery shorts for exercise or for aesthetic reasons under fitted clothing.

SRC Women's compression shorts feature a proprietary luxurious fabric and breathable power mesh lining. These fabrics are independently and scientifically tested. Test results show that our fabric and its construction is not only of the highest quality but it consistently delivers continuous gentle graduated compression over time. To achieve this, high performance fabric panels are cut in multiple planes to provide multi-directional stretch performance which means that SRC compression garments retain their stretch and strength characteristics longer than some leading sports performance brands

Achieving Optimal Results

Begin wearing your SRC Recovery Shorts Mini Length as soon as you feel able post-delivery. It may take a few days for your SRC Recovery Shorts Mini to feel fully comfortable because of fluid retention.

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 shorts during the day only while your perineal stitches are healing. Once the area is fully healed you can wear them both day and night.

SRC Recovery Shorts Mini can be worn both day and night. Wear your SRC Recovery Shorts Mini for as many hours as you wish. Your SRC Recovery Shorts Mini should feel supportive without any feeling of restriction. During pregnancy some women find that their ribs expand to accommodate the growing foetus. If so, the elastic at the top may feel a little tight even though the garment is otherwise comfortable. This is easily resolved by putting the elastic on continuous gentle stretch for a number of hours. Please contact us should you require further information.

Alternate between your SRC Recovery Shorts Mini Length and your SRC Activate garment as soon as you feel you no longer require as much upper abdominal support throughout the entire day and the swelling of the upper abdominal area has significantly reduced.

SRC Activate garments have been designed to allow you to comfortably return to exercise, all the while knowing that your pelvis, lower back and legs are supported. It is important to note that your SRC Recovery Shorts Mini will perform best when washed every 3 days. For continued support wear your SRC Activate Capri/Legging during this time.

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 Shorts Mini Length 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 Shorts Mini and attend weekly sessions with exercises focussed on pelvic floor, transverses abdominus and rectus abdominis closure. 4 months after wearing the SRC Recovery Shorts Mini Length the Diastasis Rectus Abdominus (DRA) was reduced to less than a finger width.
