    Belt for maternity pads?

    Where can I buy one of these? I'm going to have a c-section so I can't wear the adhesive kind with underwear, and they don't include the belt with the looped ones. Any ideas?

    Hi. I used the adhesive kind with underwear with a c-section, just made sure they were big, comfortable underwear that didn't pit pressure on the wound/scar. Had no problems. Glad you got your VBAC issues sorted out, by the way.

    Yeah, I remember the belt ones are a bit of a pain to use, would much rather wear undies. Maybe i can buy a few cheap pair of grannies:) plus the mchc nurse said to make my own belt out of bandage. Ridiculous.
    Liquorice-it's not totally sorted out but I talked directly to PMH and they said I actually will have a choice. I find out next week at my consultation. Wish I could have just done the vbac thing though(in a different situation). I'm scared at the recovery (not being able to pick up my boy) and being away from him for so long (they told me 4-5 days!) in the hospital. But that's another thread...

    I used both the looped ones in the hospital (without a belt) and the adhesive at home.

    Found the looped ones long and able to stay put without a belt...

    Obiwan, do you mean while you were just lying in the hospital bed for the first day or so before you were able to get up much that they were able to stay put?
