What exactly is Bengkung ?
Benkung is a belly binding tradition originated from Malaysia. It essentially is the method of tying a long strip of cloth around the mother’s abdomen during the postpartum period to support the mother’s womb after childbirth.
Why belly-binding ?
• Belly-binding pulls in abdominal muscles that has separated during child birth back together.
• It prevents the “nursing slouch” by correcting the mother’s posture while sitting up and walking.
• It affectively shortens the postpartum bleeding time by getting rid of waste blood naturally.
• Belly-binding is an ancient, natural, and affective way to decrease the postpartum healing time.
• It helps shrink belly size an tighten abdominal skin.
• Not only is it suitable for postnatal moms, but is also great for daily use. It helps with weight loss, shrinking belly size, and firming the abdominal skin.
Why choose Benkung Belly Wrap?
The tradition western postpartum girdles like Belly Bandit irritates and pinches the skin, and are super uncomfortable. The Benkung wrap affectively covers from under the chest, all the way down to below the hips, while the traditional western postpartum girdles only covers the stomach partially. The Benkung wrap causes the ribcage as well as the hips to recover into their normal dimensions, without pressing onto the abdomen. Benkung wraps are made of 100% soft and durable cotton outside, and unbleached cotton in the inner shell, while the western postpartum girdles are made of irritating Polyester.
More about Benkung Belly Wrap
Wrapping the belly is the most important part of postpartum recovery. It affectively helps the body shrink and recover in the most efficient amount of time—normally around six to eight weeks. The Benkung wrap supports the mother’s postpartum body, helps the abdominal wall retract, improves and corrects posture, stabilizes the torso and ligaments, and recovers the body into pre-pregnancy size.
During the pregnancy, the mother’s body accumulates water, air, and fat which causes swelling in the body. The water gathered by the cells supports the amniotic fluid and the air cushions the baby and the mother’s organs. This is why the mother gets more swollen during the last months of pregnancy. When the baby is born, the water, air, and fat are no longer needed. So the cells release the excess liquid which causes the mother to shrink back to her pre-pregnancy size. The Benkung wrap speeds up the process of the excess liquid and waste leaving the body by putting constant pressure onto the abdomen and torso area. The Benkung belly wrap is most effective during the first eight weeks of postpartum but can also be used during anytime of the postpartum period.

How to Use:
Step 1: Spread the Benkung Belly Bind onto a bed with the inside (white unbleached cotton fabric) facing up. Lie down directly onto the wrap, while lining the bottom near the middle of your hip. Tuck the cloth tightly to your body.
Step 2: Lace the straps through the eyelets, starting from the bottom and top like shoelaces. Tighten as you go, focusing on the abdomen.
Step 3: Finish by tying-off the bind. If the bind is longer than your torso, tie the fabic inwards on the outside, not against your skin. The bind can be rolled up and loosened when using the restroom.
I highly recommend wearing the Benkung bind for at least 8-10 hours a day immediately after giving birth (natural birth). Wear the bind for at least 30 days or more. You should be able to see dramatic result after 15 days. The more the wrap is worn, the faster you will see the results. Our wrap accommodates mothers of all sizes. From X-small to XX-large. Choose the row that is most comfortable for your body. As your body begins to show some results, make the wrap smaller.
Use after stitches are removed and incision is fully healed (at least 2 weeks after surgery). A lot of moms find that wearing a Bengkung Bind actually helps with pain right after the surgery as it offers support and "holds everything in place". It can actually be worn right after C-section, but always consult your doctor before use.
Taking Care of Your Benkung Wrap:
Wash: When not wearing your Benkung bind, hang the wrap up to air to prevent unwanted odor. Put your wrap into a laundry bag to prevent the straps from getting caught onto the washing machine. Wash in COLD water on gentle cycle or wash by hand. DO NOT use BLEACH. Use mild detergent.
Dry: Use the lowest dryer setting. DO NOT OVER DRY or your bind will shrink. Or let your wrap AIR DRY laying flat.
DO NOT WEAR WHEN THE BIND IS STILL WET.
