bengkung belly binding

Belly binding is evident in various traditions and cultures, each with its own unique process and technique. Though it has been practised for centuries, it is only in recent years that the women of the Western world have tapped into the amazing benefits and power that belly binding can offer.

The Bengkung belly binding method originates from the Malaysian culture, traditionally worn for 44 days post-partum. It includes the wrapping of the postpartum abdomen from hip bones, all the way up to the sternum. This long piece of fabric is often muslin and knotted along the front of your torso to keep it secure. Its main benefits include, but are not limited to:

-    360-degree support 
-    Assists in abdominal wall muscle retraction
-    Improves posture
-    Stabilizes loosened ligaments
-    Provides support for vital organs to return to their size and position
-    Emotional support: I feel it is underappreciated how much of a woman’s emotions and experiences are stored in the abdomen/pelvic region
-    Supports the body’s natural spine and posture realignment 
-    Encourages the excess water and air in the tissues and cells to expel
-    Prevents slouching while feeding

Due to the hustle of the modern world, it can be impractical to wear this in a period of 44-day confinement. I recommend wearing this for at least 5-10 days, and 6 to 12-24 hours each day for the benefits above. 

You have the option to have me come to your home each day to rebind your abdomen, or I can teach you and your partner to continue to rebind on your own. 

You will have the belly binding panel, wrap and warming oil supplied to you.

A Note on Cultural Appropriation
Throughout my training, both as a doula and through BreeAnn Moore’s belly-binding training, cultural appropriation is a topic thoroughly discussed and understood. I do not claim to offer the traditional Bengkung belly binding practice, as that is of sacred tradition to Malaysian culture. I have made every effort to ensure the credit for these techniques go to the Malaysian culture and pay respect to my teacher and her mentors for allowing us the knowledge of Belly Binding to share with women as they endeavour to support their healing.

Pricing: $250 (dependent on location), including the binding panel, wrap and balm/oil as well as me coming to your house to bind you on day 1, and teach you how to continue binding yourself.

For those local (Shoalhaven to Milton NSW): packages are available for all of the above, plus me coming to your home to bind you 4 times in the first 2 weeks. Pricing: $500
