"Today I was thrilled to take this free belly binding class with Diksha Berebitsky, Thank you!!! We learned why and how to bind ourselves after birth and had a fun, hands on experience to try it out, Let me just say my 'loose bones' LOVED the feeling! I am excited to have this new skill and wear this for my first 40 days postpartum. I am SO excited to have the opportunity to be a mother and experience this amazing phase of life. The female body is a trip and I am so very grateful." ~Reanna
Bengkung belly binding is the art of wrapping a postpartum woman's belly for physical support and to help hasten the recovery process after childbirth. This belly binding technique uses a 16 yard long strip of cloth to wrap around around the abdomen from the hips up to the ribcage. Women are traditionally wrapped as soon after birth as possible, ideally on day 2-5 and 2 weeks after a cesarean birth. It is then worn for 40 days or longer as needed. The Bengkung belly binding technique is rooted in Malaysian culture however various countries and cultures around the world use a form of belly binding to help support the healing process.

Is the Bengkung different from western postpartum girdles (like Belly Bandit)?
It’s 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 so it doesn’t press on the abdomen.
