It is a traditional Malay belly compression binding method after childbirth. The Postpartum Belly Wrap (Bengkung) will help you with your posture during feedings. *This is not a weight loss product. It is a supportive binding, that aids in returning muscles and organs to their pre-pregnancy position!
Traditionally, this practice nurtures the new mother for 30-40 days after birth with daily massage, “Bengkung” binding and an appropriate diet.
In the comfort of the mother’s home, Alexa offers a 3-day treatment which involves a light Womb Massage with belly firming paste, followed by the application of the ‘Bengkung’ wrap. This treatment is most effective in the first 3 months post-partum. Ideal start time is 4-5 days after a vaginal delivery, and 6-10 weeks after a caesarean section.
This massage relaxes the muscles, whilst clearing and boosting the circulation and lymphatic systems of the body.The massage is designed to aid the post-partum recovery process, alleviating any physical and emotional symptoms that delivery might cause, with the aim of restoring balance and well-being.
The “Bengkung” wrap is bound around the mother’s pelvis and stomach every day. It guides the uterus and the abdominal organs back into their proper positions, and helps to bring the abdominal muscles back together, enabling the mother to swiftly recover and accept the new self.
It’s best to schedule your services at 37-40 week gestation. This will allow time for the order to be made and to allow me to save your time on my schedule. The binds are made of cotton.
Bindings should be worn for up to 12 hours at a time (so morning or evening appointments is optimal).
