Traditionally used to support the postpartum body, Bengkung Belly Binding provides assistance to abdominal walls as they retract and vital organs as they return to pre-pregnancy size. The wrapping can, being done over or under the clothing, improve posture, support the torso, and loosened ligaments.
Belly binding is most effective during the first 8 weeks postpartum but can be useful for support after that time frame. It’s never too late to start binding! It seems to be most effective when done on a daily basis of 8-12 hours a day for about 40 days. You can certainly choose to do it for shorter periods of time, but there is no need to exceed 12 hours a day. Your body needs time to breathe and relax without the wrap in place.
For vaginal births: You can start binding during the first week postpartum. Usually 2-3 days after delivery. It is recommended to start 3-5 days postpartum and as always, get permission from your care provider first.
For cesarean births: After a cesarean birth it is not recommended to start until after your incision has healed, staples and/or stitches have been removed, and your care provider clears you for wrapping. Typically this is somewhere between 4-6 weeks postpartum.
