BENGKUNG BELLY BINDING

This traditional abdominal binding technique from Malaysia is an abdominal closing method for the postparum period.
Bengkung means “belt”.

Bengkung belly binding has a strengthening and stabilizing effect and promotes:

  • the postpartal flow (lochia) 
  • the involution of the uterus
  • the contraction of the straight abdominal muscles and relaxation of the abdominal wall 
    (relaxed muscles recover more quickly)
  • good posture
  • repositioning of the abdominal organs to their orignial position
  • on an emotional and psychological level, the feeling of being supported / held and the possible feeling of “emptiness in the belly” is counteracted
  • your own body awareness and self-care in the postpartum period

The Bengkung bind is an approx. 14-17m long, narrow cotton sling which is wrapped around the area between the pubic bone / hip and lower ribcage.

The Bengkung method cannot be compared with conventional support belts, as the bound “Bengkung belt” includes the lower ribcage as well. This creates a different quality of support than a conventional belly belt.
The Bengkung belt adapts to the constantly changing body shape through the daily binding. The support function can therefore not diminish due to stretching, as can happen when wearing a conventional  support belt over a longer time period.

In consultation with your postpartum midwife, you can benefit from my Bengkung Belly Binding offer, learn the technique from me and bind yourself daily for a few hours for approx. 30-40 days.

Bengkung instruction (approx. 1 hour) outside of a regular postpartum visit:

  • with rented bengkung belly bind: CHF 120.-
  • incl. your own bengkung belly bind: CHF 150.-

(plus car expenses and parking fees)

Thoughts on value and pricelessness

I deeply believe that hiring a doula should not be a matter of financial situation, but a matter of personal need and the resulting priority given to the upcoming birth and postpartum experience.
The way birth and the time surrounding it will be experienced not only shapes the mom, the baby, the dad and the family, but ultimately has a long-term impact on the particular society, culture and generations to come.
Pregnancy, birth and even the postpartum period therefore deserve, in my opinion, at least as much investment, priority and importance as other big events in life (such as weddings, honeymoons, christenings, baby showers, decorating nurseries, birthdays, etc.).
A doula supports and promotes the best possible birth experience for mom and baby in a meaningful way.
The investment in your birth preparation, birth, and postpartum is a unique gift to your baby and you, whose lifelong value ultimately cannot be defined by any amount of money in the world.

If financial reasons prevent you from hiring a doula, get in touch. We will find a solution.
