We are dedicated to serving every new mom with the upmost satisfaction during this crucial point in her life. We are here to let her know she can enjoy and thrive during her renewing process.

We also provide educational brochures to health care providers to encourage and motivate new moms to get back to a healthy shape naturally and effortlessly.

We want to help moms know the importance of the method as well as the product. “It is not only what you use, it is also how you use it, how long you use it and where you use it to achieve ultimate results”.  

Our History

Several years ago, Charlene Williams, a health science professional, mother of three, and creator of the Band Specialist, developed a revolutionary new approach to the traditional art and science of pregnancy banding. Charlene's method not only improved her own physical recovery, but greatly impacted her emotional and psychological health as well.  Her life-changing experience triggered a passion and desire to share her discovery with other new moms everywhere.

It all started after using a traditional belly banding method during her first pregnancy. She knew the results she personally experienced could help other women transform their own bodies after giving birth. Charlene knew, however, there were a few obstacles to overcome.

First, the longstanding, traditional method of belly banding used during her first pregnancy was too cumbersome and impractical for today's active, busy mom. Next, Charlene knew that pregnant women needed much more than just another uncomfortable elastic belly band offering little more than an old fashioned corset. Finally, she knew it needed to work seamlessly in a variety of settings, designed with a built-in system that supported the proper traditional method used for a natural and complete pregnancy recovery.

The Cinch Tummy Wrap is born

When Charlene was expecting her second son, Jack, after much research and collaboration with medical experts, Charlene birthed the Cinch Tummy Wrap - a sleek, comfortable modern wrap with a special patented design, fully adjustable and multifunctional, with 360 degrees of even and controlled compression. She also incorporated the step-by-step method for using the band properly for optimum results.

After the Cinch Tummy Wrap came the Atlas 2-IN-1 Belly Band, supportive clothing for new moms, and the Band Specialist pregnancy community where moms find answers, prenatal and postnatal products and support, and so much more.

Years ago Charlene Williams recognized the need to transform how we approach pregnancy recovery. Today, she's widely known as the pioneer in the art and science of pregnancy banding products. Now it's her desire to assist in supporting the health and natural recovery of new moms everywhere.
