Bengkung is a traditional Malaysian belly binding method and an ancient traditional natural way of healing after birth. 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 your womb after childbirth.

Benefits Include:

  • Support of the lower abdomen and uterus to promote healing both after vaginal or cesarean birth

  • Restorative positioning of abdominal muscles anatomically to encourage quicker restoration of the torso

  • Increased lower back support for breast feeding and back pain relief post delivery

  • Decreases postpartum bleeding time by speeding up the process of in a natural way

  • Decreased retention of water

  • Increased circulation to promote natural healing

  • Slimming of the ribcage, belly and hips

  • Overall flatter results of stomach, faster

  • It feels good!

By systematically and firmly (but comfortably) wrapping the lower back, abdominal area, and upper hips, this thin, breathable material helps guide the body back towards its center, tightening and encouraging recovery through the natural movement towards one's center.   

Different then the stiff, unforgiving commercial abdominal binders, Bengkung binding is done over a series of days for as long as the mother needs to assist in the recovery process. What also makes it different then commercial binders is the length. A Bengkung Belly Bind is a long wrap that covers from under the chest all the way down to below the hips. This way, it doesn’t just work on the waist, but also helps the ribcage and the hips go back to their former dimensions. It also stays put when you move, and it doesn’t press on the abdomen.

The ideal time to be wrapped is 5 days postpartum. For cesarean healing the ideal time is 2-3 weeks postpartum.The Belly binding is most effective and best used during the first 8 weeks postpartum but can be useful for support during anytime of the postpartum period.
