The Authentic Malay Tradition
By Salwa Salim

Bengkung Belly Binding
Healing & Slimming After Birth

Bengkung Belly Binding as the name suggests uses a bengkung to bind the belly and hips after pregnancy. It’s the secret to faster healing, smother recovery and flatten the abdomen immediately after birth and post-miscarriage. Bengkung Belly Binding is based on the traditional Malay postpartum practices of Southeast Asia.

We are committed to keeping the practice of bengkung belly binding authentic, dispel any myths and inaccuracies, educate its rich history and teach women the correct and safe technique of using the bengkung belly bind.

· Testimonials ·

This is my third baby but my first experience with bengkung belly binding. I am amazed at how fast my tummy has reduced in size in such a short time. It definitely helps me slim down a lot quicker than my first two pregnancies. The whole experience was wonderful and I feel a warm sense of calmness which I look forward to every morning. My postpartum abdominal cramps significantly reduced and I can’t recommend it enough to everyone if they have a chance to have such an experience.
