Jesinta Campbell reveals she’s been trying out belly binding to help with her postpartum recovery

‘The internal changes while pregnant aren’t spoken about’: Jesinta Campbell reveals she’s been trying out belly binding to help with her postpartum recovery… after giving birth to newborn daughter Tullulah

Jesinta Campbell welcomed her newborn daughter, Tullulah, just last month. 

And this week, the model and WAG revealed on her app that she’s been trying out ‘the traditional art of postpartum belly binding.’ 

The 28-year-old said that she’s explored the practice with the help of her doula and rather than it being for ‘aesthetics,’ it’s to ‘support her body in the process of healing post-birth.’

Jesinta – who is married to AFL star Lance ‘Buddy’ Franklin – shared pictures of the binding on her belly. 

She recommended to fans that they should use a $75 binder kit from Etsy shop, and said it’s best to use organic natural cotton muslin.

‘Once completed the wrap feels like a warm hug, with my body feeling so supported,’ Jesinta said on her app, adding that she has been getting her stomach binded daily.

Talking about why she was so interested in the practice, Jesinta said that the female body changes so much while pregnant.   

‘The growth of our bellies and breasts are visually obvious to everyone yet the internal changes taking place to accommodate the growth of a little human are the ones not commonly spoken about,’ Jesinta said.

‘Our abdominal muscle separates, our uterus grow, skin and muscles stretch, our cervix dilates and our hips and pelvis move…just to name a few.’ 

She added: ‘It takes time for a woman’s body to heal and for her organs to return to where they were before baby.’ 

Jesinta said that new mothers should always check in with their doctor before getting the binding done.

She said that from her research, benefits can include a reduction of postpartum bleeding and fluid retention and it is said to help with abdominal separation.

Last month, Jesinta welcomed her first child with husband Lance ‘Buddy’ Franklin. 

‘Jesinta and Lance are thrilled to announce the arrival of their beautiful baby daughter, Tullulah Franklin,’ a spokesperson told Daily Mail Australia at the time. 

‘They are both absolutely besotted with her.’

The pair first announced they were expecting a child in August last year. Jesinta has previously said that her pregnancy had been challenging.
