There has been a lot of talk about postpartum belly binding, or wrapping, lately, and I have certainly been a part of that! See my post here on Bengkung, or Indonesian-style post-partum wrapping for supporting the body after the baby is born. But what about before your baby exits the womb? Can wrapping also benefit pregnant mothers? I think that it can, and here's why.
Please keep in mind that I am not an expert, just someone who loves to learn about pregnancy and birth, and especially how different cultures developed healthy birth practices. Don't do anything that you aren't comfortable with or that makes you uneasy!
I look at birth from the perspective that our bodies are wonderfully made, and if we really believe that and work with the birth process and nourish our bodies properly, they will function optimally, most of the time!
