Bengkung Belly Binding
Bengkung Belly Bind + Session
Bengkung Belly Binding is a traditional postpartum practice in South East Asia (particularly in Indonesia and Malaysia). It aids in:
Abdominal wall retraction (diastasis recti)
Supporting the womb after birth and speeds up the process of contraction
The recovery and healing from Caesarean birth
Returning to your pre-pregnant shape
Tightening body parts that may have lost muscle tone during pregnancy
Breaking down fat and cellulite
Accelerating fat burning
Relieving water retention
Supporting the spine and postural realignment
Supporting the pelvic floor
Providing back support
The binds are custom made by Jen or her mother from 100% cotton hand-printed Indonesian Batik. Each one is unique as the Batiks prints are all originals. In the session Jen teaches you how to bind yourself and provide the bind. See the binds that are currently availble to choose from on Jen's Blue Moon Birth Etsy store.
NOTE: Due to covid I have been unable to source authentic hand-printed Indonesian Batik and as such, I am unable to make or provide Bengkung Belly Binds to my clients. Please pre-order yours on Etsy and I will give you a $75 discount on your ceremony of choice. If you are unable to find a Bengkung Belly Bind or your prefer the modern convenience, I recommend the Ab Wrap produced locally by Bellies, Inc.
