I offer sliding scale for those in need. Belly binding for a vaginal birth is best done 2-5 days post birth, for a cesarean it is best done 10-14 days post birth.
I am trained in ceremonial Malaysian Bengkung belly binding. My training has been endorsed by the Malaysian government and was held at the Mayalasian Office of Tourism in DTLA. I was lucky enough to learn from a fellow birth worker who has been a Malaysian resident for decades. Malaysia has the lowest rates of postpartum mood disorders.
The benefits of Bengkung binding include: back pain relief, ligament stablization, spinal support, postural support leading to better milk supply, repair & closing of ab muslces, perinium support, torso support as vital organs return to pre-pregnancy position, pelvic floor reconditioning. While belly binding can have cosmetic benefits, the practice serves many puprosed well beyond vanity.
Slow, mother centered postpartum work is what has kept Malaysian posptartum mood disorder rates at 3.9%.
