Bengkung belly binding is the art of wrapping a postpartum women’s belly and hips 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 the abdomen from the hips to the ribcage. Women 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.
