Those of you who frequent my site, may have noticed that I have a couple of new services. One of them is Bengkung belly binding. Since many people are not familiar with belly binding, I want to talk a little bit about what it is, and why it is good for you.
What is Bengkung belly binding?
Bengkung belly binding comes from Malaysia and is traditionally used to aid women in healing after childbirth. It is done by wrapping and twisting a long piece of cloth around the abdomen in a manner that helps to provide proper pressure and support.
Belly binding for postpartum women
Bengkung belly binding provides many great benefits to women who are in their postpartum period.
Postpartum belly binding can:
Belly binding for pregnant women
While bengkung belly binding is most beneficial for postpartum women, some pregnant mamas can benefit from it as well. Pregnant mamas may need a longer wrap, and will not want to wrap it as tightly.
Belly binding during pregnancy can help to support a diastasis recti from a previous pregnancy if it wasn't healed before getting pregnant again. It can also help women to sit up straighter, thereby relieving some of the muscular pain resulting from postural changes during pregnancy. Belly binding is also great for mamas who have a pendulous belly, or a belly that kind of falls or tips forward. This is most common in women who have had multiple pregnancies, or are pregnant with multiple babies. It can be used as to assist the starting and stopping labor that can result from having a pendulous belly.
Belly binding when not pregnant or postpartum
Belly binding can be very beneficial for anyone who has undergone abdominal or back surgery. It can provide support for healing muscles and structures, and it provides a comforting pressure on the abdomen. This can help with gas pain after surgery (especially when combined with a hot pack on the upper back), and can help to make you feel more secure. It is not uncommon for people who have had abdominal surgery to feel like they will open up and spill out with every cough, sneeze, or laugh. Belly binding can help counteract that feeling.
