How The Atlas 2-In-1 Saved My Back

Me wearing the Atlas and holding my boy!

Why did it take me this long to get a support for my back?! I thought it would be cumbersome and not really helpful, boy was I wrong. After my doc put me on modified bed rest to help heal my injury, she also prescribed physical therapy and a back support. She had no suggestions for back support, so I filed it away and went about my PT.

Cut to a month later, I’m still in pain and getting some supplies for the new baby when I asked about a back support. The owner grabbed the Atlas 2-in-1 and said it was a lifesaver for her. I was convinced so I got one and put it on as soon as I could. Immediate relief, ladies!!! It’s like having someone hold up that giant belly for you, while relieving your back pain and fixing your posture at the same time. Now I’m kicking myself for not buying the Atlas three pregnancies ago because…

It’s not just for back support while pregnant, it turns into a postpartum wrap for getting your stomach muscles to retract. You can even wear it at night to help narrow your widened hips. I plan on switching over to the postpartum band as soon as this baby is out in hopes of reducing some of those painful uterine contractions. Also, this is my last baby and I really want (and need) to get my body back, so I’m counting on the 360 degrees of compression post delivery to help my stomach muscles remember where they used to belong.

In the mean time, the Atlas has reduced so much of my back pain that I’m able to get up and go. I’m practically back to normal, cooking in the kitchen for hours, running errands, playing with the kids and turbo nesting. There’s no way I could have possibly organized my attic had it not been for wearing this back support.

If any of you are having back issues or your belly is just plain heavy, get the Atlas 2-in-1. Trust me, I wasn’t a believer until I had no other choice and now it’s been a lifesaver, just ask my kids and husband.
