Honouring the Postpartum
We recognize the sacredness of birth, and the hard work that has been done to nourish, grow, carry and birth your baby. We believe the postpartum deserves to be honoured!
Postpartum Belly Binding
Bengkung belly binding is a traditional healing practice for postpartum moms from Malaysia. What makes it so amazing is the fact that each time it is wrapped, it will fit your body perfectly, holding you where you need the most support. Our bodies rapidly change after giving birth; this belly bind will adapt with you throughout your entire recovery. The bind is therapeutic and very comforting to use, but does not replace the care of a pysiotherapist or other specialist.

We recognize the sacredness of birth and the hard work you've done to nourish, grow, nurture, carry and birth your child. In honour of your process, we'll provide a serene postpartum healing ceremony to begin the "closing of the bones", within the comfort of your own home. This is a time of deep celebration, while creating sacred space to nurture the birthing parent/parent and their newborn.
Closing Ceremony Activities
The list below provides a sampling of the things we can do during your ceremony. We'll go into more depth with you during the planning session, where we'll focus on your spiritual, philosophical and emotional needs to
create your customized event.
Birth Story Scribing Session - There is nothing more empowering than telling our stories. We provide a beautiful journal and scribe the parent's birth story as they experienced it.
Ceremonial Bath - A time for the parent to reflect on all their body has done. We set up a beautiful bath with herbs, honey, milk, and/or nourishing oils.
Tuck In Ceremony - A ritual where the birth process is symbolically closed by wrapping up the parent with warm cloths. This is perhaps one of the most powerful rituals done at a closing ceremony.
Belly Binding - As a closing to the ceremony we wrap up the parent in a supportive belly bind and give them a cup of tea. Upon request, we can also apply a warming paste underneath the wrap.
