After most surgical procedures, you come home to rest, recuperate and get pampered by your loved ones. After a c-section, on the other hand, it’s a whole different story. There’s another (helpless) person in the equation who needs even more care despite the fact that you’ve undergone major surgery. There’s no getting around the soreness and discomfort but both Czela Bellies and C-Panty are on your side. Very much like traditional panty styles, both brands include materials like silicone and padding that treat your incision and add a layer of protection between that area and clothing. You may not be able to take it easy but a post c-section panty may keep you comfortable during those first few months.
Features a soft, padded panel that puts an extra layer between waistbands and the c-section incision.
