A nourishing restorative practice for postpartum and menstruation support.
Bengkung belly binding is a beautiful traditional practice of self care; originating from Malaysia and Indonesia. It’s a postpartum practice which supports healing for diastasis recti, the core, and pelvic floor, by ceremoniously wrapping the body with a length of cloth in a specific method. This postpartum binding method can support the rehabilitation to the muscles, ligaments, and bone structures that are naturally stretched, weakened, and displaced during pregnancy.
Often the individual who binds describes it as feeling like the most comforting and supportive hug.
We responsibly source a 100% premium grade natural unbleached cotton muslin, providing the superior strength, support and control a quality bengkung bind requires. This natural cotton is hand dyed using 100%, non-toxic cold-water environmental dyes in our solar powered dye studio.
Our binds are approximately 9 inches wide by 17 yards long.
*****We recommend line drying all binds.*****
