Bengkung is the ancient Malaysian art of belly binding using a cloth abdominal wrap to promote faster recovery and provide support to a mother’s body during the postpartum period. The modern postpartum wrap is based on a traditional design, but has extra thread through loop holes for ease of use.

This style gives 360 degree support to assist the abdominal wall muscle retraction, improve posture, stabilize loosened ligaments, and provide support to the torso while vital organs return to their pre-­‐pregnancy size and position.

During the wrapping process, the mother is customarily given a massage with a herbal oil are applied to further facilitate the healing process. We recommend using of our Ayurvedic balancing body oils. This method of belly binding has increasingly become a holistic alternative to waist training garments and girdles more common in Western cultures.

Reported benefits include:

  • Provides postural support for the torso and organs as they return to pre-­‐ pregnancy position.
  • Aides in restoring abdominal wall and diastasis recti recovery.
  • Prevents and relieves shoulder and back discomfort.
  • Reduction of excess fluid and air in the abdominal tissue and cells.
  • Improves circulation.
  • Decreases the length of postpartum bleeding.
  • Provides physical comfort and support.
  • Stabilization for ligaments.
  • Prevents slouching while nursing your baby.

Please note the Modern Bengkung has specific sizes to account for wider abdominal areas.

Please choose a bengkung size that is 1 size bigger than your pre-pregnancy size. For example if you were a M pre-pregnancy than choose a L/XL for extra comfort.
