What is Bengkung?

Bengkung is the art of wrapping a mother's abdomen using a long strip of cloth to promote her recovery and provide physical support to her postpartum body. Bengkung has been traditionally used to aid women for the first 6-8 weeks after giving birth but it can be used during pregnancy as well. During the wrapping process, a new mother is customarily given a gentle massage on her abdomen and a healing salve made with medicinal herbs and is applied. This holistic tradition is a gentle approach towards a women's postpartum recovery. There are no synthetic fibers, shapewear boning, or zippers. The purpose of Bengkung is not to change a woman's shape but to support the one she has while allowing it to properly heal.
