Belly Binding

  • The process of Belly Binding is completed by wrapping a long piece of cotton Muslin fabric, either under or over clothing, in a pattern leaving a supportive woven look. Rather than using an elastic one-piece and size specific binder that may pinch or ride up, the woven fabric contours to the body and fits to all body sizes and shapes.
  • There are many potential benefits to Belly Binding, which may include:
  • – Posture correction
  • – Abdomen and lower back support
  • – Aid in Diastasis Recti healing
  • – Avoid slouching during feeding sessions
  • The ideal time to begin binding is one week after birth. For caesarean birth, 4-6 weeks following is recommended to allow for incision healing. Our service includes the initial binding session with 2 wraps, and a trained Doula will instruct a significant other or friend on how to re-bind as needed.
