Hosted by Natural Baby Doulas @ Village Family Chiropractic
Bengkung belly binding is the art of wrapping a postpartum women's belly for physical support and to help hasten the recovery process after childbirth. This belly binding technique uses a long strip of cloth to wrap around around the abdomen from the hips to the rib cage. This type of binding is unique and is a very natural way to expedite the healing process.
Class Fee: $20 for the class OR $75 for the class and one of Beth's beautiful binds. Typically a class is $100 per mama and binds are $85.
The class is taught by local binding expert and doula, Cameron Trader with Natural Baby Doulas. Please RSVP and to secure a bind to be available at the class, please contact Cameron Trader at firstname.lastname@example.org and visit the event page here.
Provides postural support for the torso and organs as they return to pre-pregnancy position! The unique way this binding technique is done, it supports and assists abdominal wall healing and diastasis recti recovery and supports the body's natural spine and posture realignment post birth. The constant pressure on the torso and abdomen hastens healing by reducing water, fat and air in the tissue and cells. Binding also tabilizes loose ligaments, helps to prevent and relieve lower back aches and strains, and prevents slouching while feeding or holding your child
For Best Results:
Women should be wrapped as soon they can after birth, ideally on day five postpartum. The belly bind should be worn daily for 10-12 hours a day for at least 40 days or longer. Often women who use a belly bind after birth return to their own pre-pregnancy size in 6-8 weeks.
