Whether this is your first, second or fifth baby, breastfeeding is a learning journey for mother and baby. Sometimes we expect breastfeeding to be simple, but find obstacles that were not anticipated. No mother should feel unable to nurse her little lilac, and that is why we offer lactation support—to meet mothers where they are in their breastfeeding journey and help them to create a positive and enjoyable experience!
Though postpartum is a season to give yourself much grace, many new mothers find the use of belly binding to provide support as their body journey's back from carrying a little lilac for over nine months. A common practice of Bengkung Belly Binding involves the process of using long, thin muslin fabric to wrap the abdomen from the lower hips to just under the breasts at the rib-cage. The Bengkung method of belly binding is most well-known with many Asian cultures.
