How To Use:

  3. Wrap, Wrap, Wrap: Begin wrapping one end around your back and bring it to the front, crossing over the center piece. Repeat this process with the other end, crossing over the previous piece. Continue wrapping until you've used the entire length.

  5. Practice Self-Care: While wearing your Bengkung, take this time to nurture yourself. Practice deep breathing, gentle movements, and embrace the rejuvenation that comes with it.

Traditionally, herbal pastes are applied to the abdomen prior to wrapping, as these can be messy it is convenient and highly effective to use herbal medicated oils as an alternative.

 

Our organic Ayurvedic oils were formulated in consultation with a global leading Ayurvedic practitioner to optimise recovery.

Each Bengkung comes with its own calico bag for easy storage and a product card for guidance.

      Amazing

      Firstly, customer service was amazing.

      I bought the belly wrap back in 2021 and loved it. I am going to have my second baby soon and can’t wait to use it again.

      The quality is really good and the tutorial video is so easy to follow.

      I highly recommend this belly wrap to all mamas postpartum.

      Essential for your postpartum healing

      Aside from the visually beautiful printed designs, these binds are the holding and nurturing your postpartum body NEEDS!
      The ritual involved with applying the bind is such an important element in you nurturing your body is such a raw and beautiful time.
      We do not take postpartum care into consideration in the West and women and their bodies suffer because of it. Women's bodies go through such an expansion and they give their everything to continue to hold their bodies on the outside after birth, that they also need holing themselves. And this bind offers that in so many ways.
      They are unlike the quick and thoughtless velcro belly binds that are the thoughtless convenience that our culture has turned to. These binds are individualised to your ever changing body postpartum body. They also surpass those super tight spandex shorts, that along side dealing with bleeding, maternity pads and potential stitches are a hot harbouring environment for infection down there! No thank you!

      Best postpartum belly binder

      BENGKUNG traditional postpartum belly wraps are best things for new mums. There are so many good things about these wraps. They are beautiful, look at the prints. The cloth is pure cotton. I was thinking it will be hard to wrap but it takes your body shape, which make it easy to wear it, I can wear it whole day without any issue. I had a severe back pain after delivery, I would say the wrap is a saver for me as it supported my back a lot. I would really recommend others to but it. It is a must thing to have for new moms.
