I am so excited to announce that I received a bengkung belly wrap today and I’m now offering this as a service to my clients!!
Bengkung Belly Binding originates from Malaysia and is thought to be helpful in speeding up the healing process after birth. This wrap comfortable binds the belly of a new mother for up to 12 hours a day during the first 6 weeks. Mothers may use this technique 3 days after a vaginal delivery and 2 weeks after a cesarean delivery.
Before you put the wrap on you should spend about 10 minutes lying down with your feet up to help your organs move into their proper position for the binding process. This wrap will go under your clothing to allow for bathroom use during the binding session.
Many women have said that this technique helps with their posture, gives them good support for breastfeeding and helps the baby pooch shrink sooner than without it. I’m happy to offer this to my clientele!!
