This Service is provided by Herbalist and Doula Hannah Pye. She has done additional trainings in Bengkung Belly Binding and is passionate about helping people heal. Bengkung belly binding is the art of wrapping a postpartum person's belly for physical support and to help hasten the recovery process after childbirth. This belly binding technique uses a long strip of cloth to wrap around around the abdomen from the hips to the ribcage. People are traditionally wrapped as soon after birth as possible, ideally on day five and then worn for 40 days or longer as needed. The Bengkung belly binding technique is rooted in Malaysian culture however various countries and cultures around the world use a form of belly binding to help support the healing process.
