Belly binding is an old fashioned art of tying the belly up for up to three weeks after birth. This allows mom to be more comfortable, helps the uterus to shrink more effectively, and the muscles and organs to come back into alignment more quickly. Belly binding helps the belly shrink faster and keeps moms from developing bellies that have a tendency to protrude after birth. We often use this technique with the process of skin brushing which helps your skin shrink faster and get back to its original shape earlier than is expected. Most moms love this process and love to have their bellies bound because it makes them feel more balanced and tighter as a result. We recommend this for every mom.
