BENGKUNG BELLY BINDING

Bengkung Belly Binding (Postpartum Belly Binding) is a traditional postpartum practice in India, China & Malaysia and many other countries. It is the art of wrapping a woman's belly and hips after birth for physical support and to help fasten the recovery process after childbirth.  

This technique uses a very long and narrow strip of muslin cloth that is wrapped firmly but gently around the abdomen from the hips to the ribcage.  Traditionally it is worn for 44 days confinement but can also be worn for a minimum of 5 days up until 6 months postpartum.

 

Belly binding is a divine sacred practice that honours the woman who has just given birth. It helps her to connect back to her body, mind and spirit and process her birth and honouring her role into motherhood.

 

Birth is a journey and experience of openness, sensitivity, & vulnerability as it challenges the physical body, mind and spirit. Belly binding helps to close and seal the experience of pregnancy and birth. It brings back feelings of peace, love, connection, encouragement, warmth and deep healing within ourselves.
