WHY SRC RECOVERY LEGGINGS?
SRC Recovery Leggings assist in speeding up recovery after pregnancy by addressing the 3 most common and important conditions post birth:
1. Abdominal Muscle Separation (DRAM)
2. C-Section and Perineal Trauma / Stitches and
3. Low Back Pain
HOW DO COMPRESSION GARMENTS WORK TO PROMOTE
- 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.
- 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.
- 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. Should you 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.
