Your Binding session
"Bengkung Belly Binding is an ancient Malaysian method of wrapping the postpartum mother's abdomen in a long narrow piece of muslin or light weight cloth. Wrapping the belly is an effective and important part of a mother's recovery that aids the body to shrink and recover in a shorter time period, normally 6 to 8 weeks. A sacred belly wrap provides a mother's postpartum body with 360 degree support to assist the abdominal wall muscle retraction, improve posture, stabilize loosened ligaments, and provide support to the torso while vital organs return to their pre-prenancy size and position. -Sacred Pregnancy
I like to tell women inquiring about belly binding that it offers a gentle firm hug type support during the postpartum healing period. Generally worn for at least 4 hours for 40 days. Belly binding offers customizable support while your wearing it bringing everything in and offering great back support during those long nursing sessions so no more nursing mom slouch or shoulder pain.
Beengung Belly binding aids in the closing of the muscles of the abdomen along with supporting them during the healing process aiding in healing of diastases Recti. It also supports the hips and pelvis while it recovers from birth and the effects of Relaxin. Relaxin is a wonderful hormone that loosens everything in preparation for birth but, in postpartum it can leave our pelvis feeling loose. Belly Binding offers our pelvis extra support making it feel more comfortable while our body works out the relaxin and returns to its pre-relaxin state.
A unique belly binding experience either in your home or in my office. We start binding after the third day with a vaginal birth, and once your doctor has said your incision is healed with a cesarean generally 3-6 weeks after your birth.
