Bengkung Belly Binding

Both emotional and physical benefits are associated with belly binding, and a wonderful way to provide new parents a chance to practice a little self care in the early postpartum period.

The Malaysian practice of wrapping the abdominal area after childbirth has proven mental and physical benefits that allow newly postpartum birthing people to help their bodies recovery.

It is best done with in 3-5 days postpartum, or once the incision has healed if there was a cesarean birth.  We recommend you wear the wrap 8-10 hours per day for 30-40 days.
