BengKung belly binding is discounted for my doula clients.
Belly binding is an ancient tradition in many cultures. It is the practice of using special knots to tie long strips of cloth around the abdomen and a warming blend of essential oils during the postpartum recovery period to ensure support and increased healing in the womb after childbirth. The BengKung style of binding that we practice is specific to the Malaysian culture.
Some of the benefits:
It pulls the separated muscles in the abdomen back together
Prevents back pain
Helps with posture while breastfeeding
Decreases postpartum bleeding time
Has a slimming effect
Brings warmth and heat back into the body
It feels good.
I use a pure muslim fabric which can be used as early as 3 days after delivery unless you had a c-section and then you would want to wait until 4 weeks postpartum. The Belly Binding is recommended to be worn 4 - 24 hours for 5 - 15 days and can be worn while sleeping and throughout the day for extra support.
Cranial Sacral Therapy is a non-invasive, light touch therapy that is still very effective. It can help infants recover from birth trauma (which happens a lot to moms and babies). Cesarean births are even harder on babies.
Birth trauma can interfere with proper cranial nerve function, leading to colic, latching, breathing, swallowing, digestion, and/or sensory-motor impairments.
Cranial Sacral therapy can help babies that are fussy and that are hard to sooth, babies that seem uncomfortable in their bodies, babies who have digestion or elimination problems, reflux, colic, spitting up, breastfeeding, and latching difficulties
It can also help babies who favor one side, babies who hate tummy time, babies that struggle with sleep, and babies who get a lot of ear infections.
