There are a lot of things that you must change in your routine after you deliver a baby through a c-section. Some of them are rather obvious, since you are aware that your body will be healing over the coming weeks. At the same time, others may not be as obvious at first, and include wearing specially designed underwear, which will have extra space for any bandages and dressings, and they will be comfortable enough to wear all day without irritating you or causing your surgery site any problems. There are numerous types of these panties, and here is information on some of the most popular ones. You’ll want to pay attention to the amount of support they provide, as well as if they look like something you’ll want to wear. Some products even have attractive designs and patterns, so you can still feel beautiful, at a time when you might need a little something special.
