Bengkung Belly Binding is the traditional Malay belly compression binding method after childbirth. The Postpartum Belly Wrap will help you with your posture during feedings, and may help to reduce the all too common back & shoulder pain associated with breast feeding. Ultimately, the Postpartum Belly Wrap will aid in getting you back to your pre pregnancy size faster than ever!
Using a Postpartum Belly Wrap after delivery of baby will help to prevent “wind” from entering our body and keep us warm. Wearing the right Bengkung correctly can help to reshape your body faster and more efficiently. It could also hold you up in the correct posture by supporting your back bone, (especially for breast feeding mums who always tend to sit and bend their back while breastfeeding their baby) and hence can prevent or minimize back pain. Wearing a Bengkung also helps to tone up your abdominal muscles and shape your hips after childbirth.
It is advisable to start wearing a Bengkung 4 days after a normal delivery, for up to whenever you like. It is best if you could wear it all day long, even while sleeping, so, it is better to have at least 2 sets of Bengkung's so that you could wash and change every other day. Bear in mind that you’ll sweat a lot during postpartum period and hygiene is very important so that it will not cause any skin irritation.
If you have had a C-Section, Please consult with your doctor before you start wearing any Postpartum Belly Wrap, normally it will be at least 2 weeks after delivery or longer, depending on each individuals condition.
