At Belly Bands we’re passionate about helping everyone get back to normal life after surgery!
Manufacturing the Belly Band compressions garments, has led us to meet and talk with many people who have had surgery, often they would share their difficulties and vulnerability about their post-op experience after procedures such a C-Section, Hysterectomy and Hernia surgery.
My heart was sympathetic to their situation and I realised that the most common problem was the uncertainty of what to do at home after leaving the hospital.
With this knowledge I set out to find the best non-invasive products and healing tips that are known for post-surgery recovery. Including, wound pain, gas and bloating and scar healing.
What started out as blog post to help our customers, turned into us manufacturing the products and creating the Heal Better recovery Kits.
The next step was to provide a convenient way to educate our customers on how to be pro-active in self care when at home, learning how to manage pain, avoiding complications and tutorials on scar care.
Together with your doctor’s advice, we hope it empowers you to take charge of your own recovery, so you’re back on your feet as painlessly as possible while ensuring that your body is healing well.
I hope the Heal Better kit can bring comfort and make a positive difference in your recovery journey.
