Bengkung Belly Binding is an ancient Malaysian practice that involves using a long, thin piece of cloth to wrap the postpartum belly. This practice is designed to help postpartum recovery by providing comfort, warmth, and support to the hips, abdomen, and pelvic floor.
Why should you bind after giving birth?
After giving birth, our bodies tend to feel... vulnerable. There is a lot of growing and separation that has occurred and we're often in need of some help feeling "put back together".
Improves diastasis recti
Provides core support
Improves posture during breastfeeding
Can decrease postpartum bleeding
Aids in shrinking the uterus down to pre-pregnancy size
Gives support to loose ligaments
An act of self-care
This is not necessarily a "slimming" tool. I am not interested in you losing weight or being able to fit into your pre-pregnancy jeans. This practice is about healing your womb and giving your body support after it worked so hard to carry and birth your baby.
Package (Pricing) Options
What's included & when to start binding:
Each client receives a new personal bind that is yours to keep! It can take up to 2 weeks for me to receive your bind so the earlier you know you want to bind, the better!
Ideally, we will set up a time to bind within 3-5 days after you've given birth (this time increases if you've had a c-section birth- sometimes up to 2-3 weeks) and received the OKAY from your provider.
It seems that binding is most beneficial for the first 8 weeks postpartum. Binds can be worn for 10-12 hours a day but should be taken off while you're sleeping.
If you have diagnosed prolapse or you find that binding causes any discomfort in your pelvic floor, please stop using and refer to your provider and a physical therapist.
As your Belly Binding resource, I will:
Allow me up to two weeks to schedule your appointment after our contract is signed. It takes about 2 weeks for wraps to ship.
Provide payment prior to date of services
Disclose any illnesses, physical complications or concerns prior to service
When to start binding...
For Vaginal Births: You can start binding as early as 2-3 days postpartum. Please receive permission from your provider prior to binding.
For C-section Births: It is recommended to wait until your incision is healed (stitches have dissolved/staples have been removed) and your provider has cleared you for binding. This can be anywhere from 2-6 weeks.
I do not provide any medical services or advice. If you feel that you have a complication of pregnancy or birth, I advise that you contact your provider for appropriate medical care. This service and product do not provide weight loss, waist training, or any guaranteed results.
