Have you heard of belly binding?
In the African pampering tradition, bellybinding is a restorative art.
It’s purpose is to provide strength and warmth to the core muscles.
Lately, bellybinding has become very trendy. Asian styles of bellybinding have been popularized and promoted.
At Flatbush Doulas, we are preserving the African tradition of bellbinding, which was continued in the Caribbean, or the “belly band” as our grannies would call it.
This ancestral science is an unbroken link back to the continent of Africa, where belly binding is still part of the postpartum pampering practices in use today.
Women who experience postpartum African Belly Binding report feeling less pain in their lower backs, more supported in their core, improved posture, and relief from that “empty” postbirth feeling.
Do you want to feel strong and supported as you care for your baby, heal from the birth, and manage your daily schedule?
