What is Belly binding?

Bengkung Belly Binding is an amazing postpartum recovery aid that helps a mother's abdominal wall begin to heal. If this is your first pregnancy or your fifth pregnancy, your stomach will have excess fat and skin that’s had a very necessary job to do. Your body had to stretch and accommodate your growing belly and protect the baby within. Because of our secular culture, many women find the postpartum time to be aN embarrassing time, one where instead of focusing on bonding with baby, they are struggling with the weight and their new bodies. Postpartum bodies are beautiful, but it’s a mind shift. One many are trying to cultivate in our world today. Belly binding is a way to help new moms feel more comfortable, have support for their bodies as it works to find its new normal and balance. Many women, myself including, desire support and a firm reassurance around their middle in the first weeks and months of postpartum,

Bengkunk belly binding is a traditional Malaysian technique of using a long piece of fabric to support the hips & abdomen and encourage healing through gentle compression. These hand-dyed wraps are beautiful and quite superior to their modern "girdle" counterparts. Many women find immense comfort in wearing the wrap & do so for regular self-care, even after postpartum healing is complete!
