Research Facts
Also called postpartum binder or many-tailed bandage or spider bandage; made by the donor from a pattern supplied by her midwife in Bovenkeck, Holland, for use after the birth of her children to restore the figure and keep the uterus in its correct position; the binder was worn by the new mother for 10 days after the birth and was changed daily; the midwife bound up the post-partum woman by wrapping the straight pieces over her belly and fastening the binder by braiding the strips down the front; Mrs. Quik made the binders in the seventh month of pregnancy; Mrs. Quik tried to demonstrate how the binder was fastened but was unable to remember how it was done; however, she said that the midwife, an elder, traditional woman, had made a very neat, attractive, braided closing.
