What is Bengkung Belly Binding?
Bengkung is a traditional Malaysian belly binding method. Essentially it is a practice of tying a long strip of cloth around the torso during the postpartum recovery period to ensure strong support to your womb after childbirth.
- First off, it feels amazing!
- It helps to slim the ribcage, belly, and hips.
- Pulls in the separated abdominal muscles (diastasis recti) back together.
- Prevents back pain. While wearing it, you are reminded to sit and walk straight, a good antidote to the “nursing slouch.”
- It’s an old traditional natural way of healing after birth.
- It feels good!
What makes a Bengkung different from western postpartum girdles like Belly Bandit?
It’s the length. A Bengkung Belly Bind is a long wrap covering from the chest to the hips. This way, it doesn’t just work on the waist but also helps the ribcage and the hips return to their former dimensions. It also stays put when moving, so it doesn’t press on the abdomen.
