Ancient Malaysian belly wrapping practice "Bengkung" has been used by women for optimal health and recovery of the womb and body in postpartum. Essentially, it is a beautiful technique of wrapping a long cloth around the abdomen to ensure strong support and recovery after childbirth. Belly binding is used for:
~Postpartum contraction relief
~Pulls in the separated abdominal muscles
~Decreases postpartum bleeding time by aiding in the release of stagnant blood
~Encourages release of water retention
~Provides posture support during breastfeeding
~It’s an ancient traditional natural way of healing after birth.
~Helps all the organs to migrate to their natural place
~Brings closure to the mother and the circle of birth
Belly binding is typically started between 1-7 days postpartum and is continued for 40 days. I will come to you in the comfort of your home and teach you and your caregiver how to do the binding and apply the herbal paste and I will do the initial wrap. I will leave you with all the information and materials you need and be available by phone, FaceTime or skype should you need further assistance.
