Bengkung Belly Binding

What is Bengkung ?
Bengkung is a traditional Malaysian belly binding method. Essentially it is a practice of tying a long strip of cloth around the abdomen during the postpartum recovery period to ensure a strong support to our womb after childbirth.

Why belly-binding ?
It helps to slim the ribcage, belly and hips.
Pulls in the separated abdominal muscles (diastasis recti) back together.
Prevents back pain. While wearing it, you are reminded to sit and walk straight, a good antidote to the “nursing-slouch”.
Decreases postpartum bleeding time by speeding up the process of getting rid of waste blood in a natural way.
It’s an ancient traditional natural way of healing after birth.
It feels good!
