Bengkung Belly Binding

Wrapping the abdomen in a Bengkung Belly Bind after birth, 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 within 6 to 8 weeks. Belly Binding 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-pregnancy size and position. The purpose of a post-pregnancy wrap is to speed up this process with constant pressure on the abdomen and torso.

A longer design of a post-pregnancy wrap (such as our Bengkung Belly Bind) provides a holistic support to all of the abdominal and pelvic organs, including the muscles, in the pelvic area. Support to the pelvic area is very important in the immediate weeks after birth as a Mother's cervix dilates 10cm when active labor is reached; this is equivalent to the size of an average bagel. Steady, pressured support on the hips allows the body to "close" more easily than if just left in its expanded state. The bengkung style of binding is known to help heal diastasis recti with the constant supportive pressure on the abdomen area, even if not used immediately postpartum.
