Bengkung belly binding is the art of wrapping a postpartum women's belly for physical support, comfort and to help hasten the recovery process after childbirth. 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. Women are traditionally wrapped as soon after birth as possible. This belly binding technique uses a long strip of cloth to wrap around the abdomen from the hips to the rib cage. It is far more comfortable than a traditional 'corset' and more effective than the velcro wraps often provided by hospitals. 

My Sunshine Birth Services provides private individual lessons and is periodically offering group workshops to train families to perform Bengkung belly binding. You will go home with your own belly binding wrap and the knowledge of how to use it. You may bring your birth partner with you so they will learn how to wrap you also.
