Postpartum Belly Binding
Modern day support utilizing ancient wisdom.
How does it work?
I use the Bengkung Belly Binding method - which simply means a way of wrapping and tying the wrap around your hips and abdominals to support your muscles as they heal after birth. This can reduce pain, shorten bleeding time, and encourage abdominal and pelvic floor healing. Belly binding is not a cure or medical treatment - it is simply a supportive tool for your postpartum recovery. Just as you wear special nursing bras for support while pregnant or nursing - belly binding wraps offer support when and where you most need it.
Worried about diastastic recti, or having trouble with incontinence after birth? Belly Binding is a great tool to add to your postpartum care plans.
When you register for belly binding services in North Dallas, TX (ideally a few weeks or months before your due date) - you will reserve a space for your belly binding session near your due date. Once you let me know your baby has made their arrival we will pick a time about a week or so after your due date (within a few days is usually an option) for your session. I will come to your home and show you how to wrap, and I will leave you with your own wrap - and herbs if desired- and the knowledge of how to wrap yourself after I leave.
Still not sure about the process? Shoot me an email and I'll be happy to answer any questions you have - obligation free.
What's included in your belly binding package:
- A handmade wrap sewn and prepared by me - custom cut to the size that will work best for you.
- Postpartum herbs you can use to promote healing (I will show you how to apply) if desired.
- A belly binding session in your home where I will show you (and your partner/friend if they will be helping you) how to wrap for maximum support and comfort.
Cost of services: $135 ($110 for doula clients)
