Bengkung Belly Binding

Bengkung is a traditional Malaysian belly binding method of tying a long strip of cloth around a mother’s abdomen shortly after birth, to support the womb and body during the postpartum period.  It is an effective and important part in a woman’s postpartum recovery and has been used traditionally to:

  • stabilize loosened ligaments
  • ease back pain by providing support to the torso
  • help pull separated abdominal muscles together
  • help slim the rib cage, belly and hips
  • support the pelvic area and promote healing

Benkung Belly Binding Package~$199

one bengkung belly bind/wrap made of %100 cotton batik, with serged edges (Regular size-15m, add $15 for long size-18m and $20 for extra long).  

*I personally craft each bind so please allow up to 4 weeks for your bind to be created. Please contact me if you require a rush order.

• a warming panel consisting of a single layer, soft flannel piece is placed next to your skin, to hold in warmth. This piece can be easily washed between uses or discarded if the paste is no longer being used. Another layer of flannel goes over this piece and ties around your abdomen. The panel holds in warmth and protects the bind from any oils or firming paste.

• a wrapping session in the comfort of your own home* giving you personal instruction to use your bind. Clients appreciate this option as there is a learning curve to using the belly bind, and I have had great feedback on the wrapping session.

belly firming paste made with all natural ingredients. It is applied directly to the skin and made with 100% natural ingredients (all organic if available). Increased stomach muscle tone and skin tightening around the abdomen, may be potential benefits as it is said that the warming paste increases blood flow to the abdominal area. It may also stimulate the body to release retained water, which occurs after childbirth.

• a password for the client area which gives you access to instructions for binding yourself (instructions are also included with your bind).

*I personally craft each bind so please allow 4 weeks for your bind to be created. Please contact me if you require a rush order.

*Please note that in home wrapping sessions are for Fort St John and surrounding areas and a mileage fee may be applicable for distances over 50km. (*please note that I do not service Dawson Creek or Chetwynd in winter conditions).
