Both emotional and physical benefits are associated with belly binding, which is a wonderful way to provide new mamas a chance to practice a little self care in the early postpartum period. The Malay practice of wrapping the abdominal area after childbirth has proven mental and physical benefits that allow newly postpartum mamas help their bodies’ recovery.

In Asia, wrapping is done 3-5 days postpartum, or once the incision has healed if there was a cesarean birth. The wrap is worn 8-10 hours per day throughout the postpartum period. However, we advise that it is best worn after the approval of your midwife or medical practitioner.
