Why we made this

Delivering a baby is a superhuman effort, but every hero needs a sidekick. For you, that’s us.

We’re here to support you through every step of your pregnancy journey, like literally – Kin’s Belly Band supports the weight of your belly and distributes it evenly so you can get around with ease.

The Belly Band makes it easier to walk and even exercise (if you’re keen!). [1] It lowers risk of falls and extra pressure on your muscles, joints and back so you can feel confident going about your day.

The Belly Butter contains an all-star line-up of nourishing ingredients to treat dry and itchy skin, repair the skin barrier and prevent the appearance of stretch marks.

Separation

Two muscles that run down the middle of your stomach can separate during pregnancy. This is called diastasis recti. Separation will usually go back to normal by the time your baby is 8 weeks old. [2]

Back Pain

During pregnancy, the ligaments in your body naturally become softer and stretch to prepare you for labour. This can put strain on the joints of your lower back and pelvis, which can cause back pain.

Pelvic Pain

Pelvic girdle pain occurs when muscles around the pelvic joints are relaxed to allow for a growing foetus, meaning they don’t have the support they normally do. Muscles have to work harder to try hold the pelvis together causing pain that can spread to the thighs and hips.

Swelling

Your pregnant body holds more water than usual and the pressure of your growing womb can affect blood flow in your legs causing fluid to build up in your legs, ankles and feet.

Stretching

Weight gain, a growing belly and hormonal changes in pregnancy can cause the middle layer of the skin to be stretched and broken along the stomach, upper thighs and breasts. Stretch marks are completely normal and occur in 8 in 10 women. [3]

Itching

Mild itching and inflammation is common in pregnancy because of the increased blood supply to the skin as well as skin of your abdomen being stretched as your baby grows.

Ask us anything

Seriously, our experts have all the answers.

Can the Belly Band be used after C-section births?

Yes, the Belly Band can be used by C-section mums to help their abdominal muscles and incision heal while reducing swelling from surgery. One study found that women who delivered by C-section and practiced belly binding during their postpartum recovery experienced less pain, bleeding, and discomfort as compared to those who didn’t. [4]

Our Belly Band sits above the incision area to avoid irritation and is fully adjustable so you don’t put unnecessary pressure on the wound. It’s best to speak with your doctor if you’re unsure about whether you should use a belly band.

When should I start wearing the Belly Band?

The Belly Band is useful during and after pregnancy. Many women start wearing belly bands during the earlier months of their pregnancy when they require less support. New mums often continue wearing belly bands postpartum to help them feel supported as they build up their core muscles that have shifted around during pregnancy. The Belly Band can also help shrink your uterus back down to size, which alleviates postpartum pain and discomfort.

How often should I wear the Belly Band?

Two to three hours a day is recommended so that you get enough support but still work your muscles and ligaments to avoid overdependence.

How do I wear the Belly Band?

The Belly Band can be worn directly on the skin and hidden under clothes or on top of clothes. It should fit snug with constant pressure on the belly, but without any impact on breathing, circulation or discomfort in your ribs.

1. Wrap the large band around the lower back and overlap the velcro sides at the front of your tummy to stick in place.

2. Overlap the small bands and tighten until you feel supported but still comfortable.

What is the sizing for the Belly Band?

One-size-fits-all. We made the Belly band fully adjustable with elastic velcro straps to fit all growing bellies and for use after giving birth as the tummy shrinks.

Can I wash the Belly Band?

Yep – hand wash in cold water only and hang to dry.

Can the Belly Butter be used on C-section scars?

Yes – however, you should only use the Belly Butter on the C-section area once your incision has completely healed.

Will the Belly Butter get rid of stretch marks?

It depends. Everyone’s skin elasticity differs and changes as you progress through pregnancy. The Belly Butter works to prevent stretch marks by keeping the skin elastic and strong and can reduce the appearance of existing stretch marks. Whether you get stretch marks that remain well beyond pregnancy will depend on how rapidly your skin stretches and on your genetics. Stretch marks fade naturally over time and using the Belly Butter can help minimise scarring.

When should I start using the Belly Butter?

For the best results, you can start applying the Belly Butter as a preventative measure against stretch marks as soon as you find out you're pregnant and continue after you give birth.

How much Belly Butter comes in a jar?

250mL

How do I know when to call my doctor?

It’s normal to experience some pain and discomfort during pregnancy and while you recover from delivery. To give you peace of mind, it’s a good idea to ask your doctor or midwife about what you can expect along the way. Postpartum symptoms tend to improve each day, but if you find your symptoms are worsening, then give your doctor a call.
