After delivery, most women try various methods to shed all the weight they gained during pregnancy and get back to their pre-pregnancy body. One of the methods used in this process is the post pregnancy belt, which particularly targets loose skin and fat around the belly area.
As it is believed to tighten the abdominal muscles, reduce swelling, and even provide support to the back. During pregnancy, the walls of the abdomen stretch to accommodate the growing uterus.
