Review: MamaWay Post-natal Recovery & Support Belly Band

{I was given this product for the purposes of usage and review. All opinions expressed are mine alone :-)}

Let me just say this: I did not just have a baby. Nope, in fact, I birthed my last of the Dean tribe over 15 years ago.

So why would I be trying out a post-natal belly band?

Great question, and I hope that my answer will help many of you. I have been working through a diastasis recti {read my story here} since the birth of our first child back in 1996. I WISH that I had had a band like this, AND I have learned that I can still benefit from “splinting” with a band from time to time. I still can use the support.

So with that being said, here is some great information about the Mamaway belly band, via their website:

About Mamaway:

The Mamaway postnatal belly band supports your uterus, abdomen, pelvis, back and spine after child birth by applying compression on the pelvic/ abdominal area to hold the expanded uterus wall, loose skin and muscles post birth, and assist your recovery in the core area. Can also be used to stabilize your abdominal area or as back support while breastfeeding or carrying their baby.

The product is antibacterial and contains 20% bamboo charcoal which naturally emits far-infrared radiation to boost circulation. Fully adjustable Velcro closure allows the user to fully control the tightness of the product by allowing the Velcro to stick anywhere on the belt.

• Can be used straight after birth to first help with uterus and pelvis recovery, tighten the abdominal area as well as back support while you recover.

• Perfectly safe for both natural and c-section. Wide enough to be a corset, soft enough to be a wrap and strong enough to give you back support.

• Easy to use 3 step fastening feels secure and comfortably tight. Two extra compression belts to reinforce key recovery areas, giving you an immediate waist line.


• Breathable Bamboo fibers form a rigid yet flexible material enabling easy, natural movements. Accelerate recovery with added infer-red to improve blood circulation.

• High quality, durable construction that will maintain its shape, wash after wash.




My thoughts:

I invite you to watch my short video review here to get my opinions on the Mamaway. A brief written summary of my thoughts will be below the video as well…enjoy!

I give the Mamaway belly band 5 out of 5 stars for these reasons:

  • comfortable to wear
  • firm yet moves with me
  • breathable bamboo construction
  • GREAT support, especially with the 2 side straps that wrap around and are adjustable
  • love the design and the feel of the band itself
  • stays put for the most part, even while seated, driving
