The Belly Binder: Something All New Moms Need to Know

February 11, 2014 2 min read

Maybe you have heard of it. I hadn't. Pregnancy, pregnancy body, delivery, postpartum was all new to me.  I read all the books that I could, I read blogs, I talked to women in the family, but I just didn't know what to expect AT ALL. With that said, I had never heard of the belly binder.

See I have this really close cousin. She is a mom, and she had to have a C-Section due to some health issues. She had read all about the belly binder, what it does and how it helps the woman after birth. She shared how she desperately needed it and that women have been doing the belly binding thing for centuries.

She shared how it helped her immensely after her C-Section and how it pulled her back together.  So she sent me one to help me. Although I didn't have to have a C-Section it was amazing how it helped me. (FYI: Us moms need to stick together.)

Prior to delivery, I also did research to find out if the belly binder would help out with diastasis recti or the separation of the abdominal muscles.  I found primarily other blogs by other moms. Every situation that was discussed is that the belly binder helped their diastisis recti, but it has to be in conjunction with engaging the core properly for postpartum women, and healthy eating.

See, I had a major sway back and like all new moms my stomach was extremely pushed out. (I know all moms do, but I felt like mine was very noticeable). The belly binder helped my body go back into alignment. I can remember wearing the binder right after my daughter was born. I felt like I wasn't sticking out there randomly into air, but that I was pulled together the way my abs were supposed to be. I work the binder up until I was released by my doctor last week. It is a great tool for postpartum moms.

With that said after every child I have I will be wearing a belly binder.

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. There is an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as online shopping has skyrocketed, due to store closures and stay-at-home mandates. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 4-6 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. Thanks for your support and understanding.

Are you in Canada? Specifically, are you outside of a metropolitan centre? We need to alert you to a disruption in shipping due to COVID-19. Our preferred shipping provider, UPS, has informed us that they cannot guarantee express shipping for many locations. We have also seen that packages delivered to Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, etc, are not waylaid, but packages delivered to areas just outside of these cities are being held in transit for days or even weeks. UPS has discontinued their guarantee of 1-4 day delivery, which you can read more about here. Therefore, we can guarantee early fulfillment but not early delivery of our goods from our warehouse to your door at this time.


We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.

Returns & Exchanges

BodyRock Equipment

We offer a 30-day return policy, as long as: it is not more than 30 days past the date of delivery; and your item is in its original condition and packaging with the original order number. Refunds will be issued when the equipment is received back to the BodyRock warehouse, minus the original cost of shipping, and the customer is responsible for the costs of return shipping. To request a refund on physical product purchases, please contact us.

Digital Products

We cannot issue refunds on digital goods such as e-books or videos, as these are non-tangible goods that are irrevocable once the order is placed.


All of the BodyRock clothing is made to order and so is final sale. If you have any questions about sizing prior to placing your order, please contact us.
