I suffer from chronic severe postpartum hernias- I'm tiny, 5'1, normally 95 pounds and during pregnancy I carry big babies. Pregnant with my 3rd. The hernia is so bad this time around (35 weeks pregnant) that I really need to take this more seriously after the baby is born.
I looked up "postpartum corset" on Google to see what was available and was surprised to find so many options out there! It's overwhelming. My midwife had a recommendation- I don't remember the brand name but will ask her next time I see her.
In the meantime, do you have any recommendations? The reviews online are conflicting but there are some helpful ones, too...
Thanks in advance!!

I am wearing a corset for abdominal separation, not for hernias, but hopefully this will be helpful anyway! I got the Better Binder corset (ordered from amazon.com), and I really like it. It's not too bulky and not at all uncomfortable, so I feel just fine wearing it all day. Hope that helps!
