After giving birth, women are looking for ways to recover quickly. In modern life, there is no time for weeks to lie and wait until the body itself returns to normal. We need to take care of the baby, someone is waiting for homework, and for someone, and business. At one time in Russia, babies-midwives engaged in labor. They wrapped their mothers with wet cloth, put them on the stove and in the morning they got up already renewed.
The maternity wards and gave the name to the specialists. It turned out that the old traditions are not so dense. Today in Russia there was a fashion for women’s postpartum swaddling. This procedure is fond of, but also overgrown with numerous myths, which we will debunk.
Postnatal swaddling can do any.
In fact, this procedure will require knowledge of physiology, anatomy, the ability to do massage, the fundamentals of herbal medicine and aromatherapy. For a simple procedure, work and knowledge are hidden. If the amateur sweatshop tries to make an amateur, then it will be just a SPA procedure, and nothing more.
This procedure is real magic.
If a woman expects miracles from such swaddling, then one should not address to midwives, but to wizards. This procedure does not give results from scratch, it works with the body’s reserves. Many mothers dream that swaddling will allow them to lose weight by several kilograms, narrow their waists, make the stomach flat, and the skin less flabby. Everyone wants this kind of miracles, but only 1-2 kilograms are left in weight, and even then at the expense of liquid. If the procedure is dense after the procedure, then the desired effect can not be seen at all. Yes, you can lose a couple of centimeters in the waist, hips and abdomen. But do not expect to get into the pre-pregnant pants after swaddling. From extra pounds (sometimes a dozen) so quickly not get rid of. It all depends on the woman herself. Swaddling allows you to tighten your sagging tummy, reduce diastase. Of course, sometimes women reasonably object that this will happen. But the processes of recovery after childbirth take sometimes months and years. And the postpartum swaddling will allow to return the former forms much faster.
This procedure has an esoteric basis.
Principles of swaddling work, like postpartum recovery procedures, are based solely on physiology. Here everything is clear in principle, there is no magic background. The body warms up by triggering the processes of sweating. Together with sweat, the hormone relaxin is actively excreted. It is he who during pregnancy causes a relaxation of ligaments of the lump joint of the pelvic bones. This gives an extension of the pelvis, contributing to the normal course of labor. Relaxin not only affects the ligaments in the pelvis, but also relaxes other muscles and ligaments. This is what the specialists use – after relaxing the muscles and resting them, we must wait for the hormone to be removed, then pull the body as tightly as possible to fix the result.
Swaddling is essentially an accelerated recovery.
If a special way to prepare the body, the body can be made very malleable and remove the distortions in it. You can even even a twisted pelvis, loosen the deflections in the spine. Without swaddling it did not happen by itself. Sports exercises can help, but the postpartum period is a rather difficult time for a woman. During this period, physical activity is not recommended. To help comes swaddling, which is a medical procedure. It is well known that treatment is not required by everyone. So do not swaddle all in a row. If a woman is not sure that it is required, do not follow the fashion or the example of a friend.
Thanks to the swaddling, all the organs will fall into place.
It’s worth knowing that swaddling is just one of the postpartum reconstructive procedures. But to expect that the work of the genito-urinary organs will work, the urinary incontinence will go away, it is possible only in combination with correct behavior throughout the postpartum period. In the early days, you must comply with bed rest, tie the first few weeks of the stomach and engage in postpartum gymnastics. And even then the result will come not at once – it will have to wait.Only after a few months the woman will understand that her body has completely recovered from childbirth. And swaddling can become one of the factors on the way to the result.
Swaddling is a normal spa procedure.
In this case, massage, scrabing, herbal baths are really used. It really has a direct relationship to cosmetology and body care. But these procedures are carried out not by themselves, but for the sake of an important goal – the warming up of the body. In other words, in the swaddling procedure, 80 percent of the time takes only preparation for it. The SPA procedures are also used, because the woman after exhaustion is exhausted and she is not up to the relaxing procedures. Sometimes there is not enough time to wash your head and do a manicure. And thanks to care and caring for yourself, you can remember for yourself for a couple of hours, feel your body, already concentrated on the needs of the baby, and just relax. Is it not wise to devote yourself some time during this difficult period?
Swaddling acts the same for everyone.
It has already been said above that everything depends on the person himself. Women all give birth in different ways, it is logical to assume that recovery will not proceed in the same way. It is also important to note a certain pattern. It turns out that the better a woman is able to relax, take care of herself, loves herself, the better will be the result. It is relaxation that is the main point of such a restorative procedure. Another factor that influences the result is behavior after swaddling. There is a big difference in active life, work on the household, when time flies imperceptibly, and a motionless lezhke for several hours. The help of others is also important. All day after the swaddling, the woman should be spared from homework, caring for children and labor. All this time should be entirely devoted to her rest. To do this, you need an understanding of those close to you, who will take care of the house for the day without a murmur.
Thanks to the changing, you can close the birth.
Closure of labor is a feeling that the pregnancy has passed. A woman stops remembering the process of giving birth all the time. Completion is a sort of humility, the realization that everything has already passed. About this was written a lot, but it is worth understanding that you can close only what was open. If a woman has already discussed everything with her friends, not remembering the birth, then this question is really no longer relevant. Then there will not be any closure of childbirth from the swaddling process, do not be disappointed by the lack of results. It will not be possible to close something, if there is a barrier on the way. If the birth was traumatic, or too little time has passed, then the feeling of completion may also not occur. Here, too, everything depends on the course of labor and the female psyche. Of course, swaddling will facilitate morale, but at once it will not be able to bring all the accumulated acute emotions.
Postnatal swaddling takes place without complications.
Experts believe that possible complications after such a procedure can become temperature, headache, feeling of weakness, abdominal pain. Elevated temperature in women immediately after birth is common, even with a good condition of the uterus and breast. This phenomenon passes by itself, here it is necessary to simply lie down. Swaddling also increases the number of such women, in which the body rules itself. Headache occurs when a woman overheats, which can not be allowed. In this case, helps massage of the neck, an enema before swaddling, warm oil with saffron in the nose, acupressure with balm “Asterisk”, rosemary on the neck and a compress with essential oil.
