$80.00

  • Details
    This wrap comes in 14 yards or 17 yards. The Bengkung Belly Wrap is dyed in a tie die style or gradient die of colors of your choice. It has hemmed edges to minimize fraying but the edge is left raw for that natural look. The cotton muslin can be machine washed and dried. Made from 100% cotton muslin, all wraps are handmade 9 inches wide. They’re just wide enough to fit well around the hips and back and unlike other materials they won't roll or bunch up.

    The wrap can be used during pregnancy to help support the heavy tummy, prevent diastasis recti, as well as relieve pain in the round ligaments and lower back. Then use the wrap after the baby's birthday. Postpartum belly binding with this traditional Malaysian practice utilizes the pressure of bound fabric to pull in the hips and repair diastasis recti.

    Note on washing: I recommend line drying your bind since 14 and 17 yards of fabric turns into a wrinkly, knotty mess in the dryer. Wear it over a tank or shirt and you'll have no need to wash often.

    Length Options:
    14 yard length bind fits a hip dimension up to 37”
    17 yard length bind fits a hip dimension up to 47"

    Q: When can I wrap?

    A: Anytime, anywhere! Women, men, and even children can wrap.

    Women should be wrapped as soon they can after birth, ideally on day five postpartum. The belly bind should be worn daily for 10-12 hours a day for at least 40 days or longer. Often women who use a belly bind after birth return to their own pre-pregnancy size in 6-8 weeks.

    Had a cesarean birth? Women should wait at least 2-3 weeks until the incision is mostly healed before they are wrapped.

    You may find it easy and comfortable to wrap at night while sleeping or during the day while doing household chores. Many women even wear our wraps out of the home

    BELLY OIL
    Our Belly Oil is nourishing with organic cold-pressed oils and the high quality essential oils. This rich blend deeply hydrates and stimulates regeneration to fade stretch marks while promoting healing of the postpartum belly.

    2oz glass dropper bottle

    Use 1 dropper full freely on postpartum belly.


    Made of cold pressed Organic Oils including Coconut, Sweet Almond Oil, Grapeseed Oil and Rosehip Oil with warming and healing essential oils of cardamom, cinnamon, nutmeg, clove, turmeric, frankincense and lavender.

    Benefits:
    Sweet almond oil adds the much needed Vitamin A, E, and Zinc, while also acting as a carrier oil to allow the other ingredients to work their magic!

    Coconut oil is a natural anti-inflammatory which fights infections while hydrating, smoothing and protecting skin.

    Grapeseed oil is high in Vitamins C and E and helps increase skin elasticity.

    Rosehip oil reduces stretch marks while hydrating and boosting the immune system.

    Each of these carrier oils are quick to absorb so you get maximum penetration without getting oil on your clothing.

    Essential Oils like Cinnamon, Clove, Cardamom, Nutmeg and Turmeric all have a slight warming sensation to increase blood flow, fighting inflammation and increase the healing of wounds. When the placenta comes away from the uterine wall, a wound is left.

    Frankincense improves skin health as it moisturizes. Not only is Frankincense great for regeneration and reducing scars, it is fantastic at helping to heal wounds and reduce the feeling of pain as well. This amazing herb also helps with balancing hormones, much needed after the massive hormone changes that come with having a baby.

    Lavender not only smells amazing and help alleviate stress, but it has many topical benefits as well! Lavender is loaded with antioxidants that help to nourish the skin. It is a natural anti-inflammatory and soothes the skin.
