Bengkung Belly Binding
Belly Binding has been practiced in many cultures around the world, originating in Southeast Asia. Binding encourages your stomach muscles which have separated during pregnancy, to strengthen and work their way back together in a shorter period of time, helps to reshape your hips, can assist with diastasis recti and helps to support posture while caring for the newborn. It also reduces the postpartum “pooch” that many women experience as their womb and stomach organs protrude out due to poor muscle control in the abdomen. Belly binding is done 1-3 days postpartum for a vaginal birth and no sooner than 2 weeks postpartum for a surgical birth, allowing time for the incision to seep and breath before covering it. The bind should be worn for most of the day, even throughout the night for the first 30 days post birth, usually alternating between 8 to 12 hours on and 8 to 12 hours off.
Package includes a custom made bind made to your size and two educational visits where I teach you (and your partner) how to wrap the bind, how long to wear it, and ways in which it can be help in regards to encouraging your body to heal.
