Bengkung Belly Binding
Bengkung means a strip of cloth in the Indonesia language. Bengkung Belly Binding is a traditional Indonesian treatment of tightly wrapping a long strip of cloth, Stagan, around a woman’s middle section.
Bengkung works by twisting and weaving the strip of cloth tightly around a woman’s middle section and thighs so her muscles remain engaged and unmoving. After a woman has given birth, Bengkung Belly Binding has the below benefits:
- As little at 3 days a woman’s uterus can go through involution naturally. Involution is the process by which the uterus attempts to return to its normal prepregnancy size and condition.
- Helps reshape and support the postpartum pelvic organs and abdomen muscles closer into the body.
- It can help heal an incision from a Cesarean properly.
- Provides support for your internal organs and midsection.
- Makes a body slimmer through the mid-section.
- It pulls the separated diastasis recti back together.
- Helps reshape the backbone and body posture.
You can receive belly binding 1 day after giving birth vaginally or 1 week after delivering via cesarean.
