WHAT IS BELLY BINDING?
Women in many indigenous cultures worldwide have traditionally wrapped their torso and upper hips after birth as well as during their menstrual cycle for womb support and pelvic relief. When freshly postpartum, you may have reservations about spending money on something for yourself, however one thing I always recommend is postpartum belly binding! It may be all about the baby now, but the womb and body still need to heal, the fourth trimester is crucial for her health and wellness not only now, but along the years as you continue to be the backbone of her family and community.

YOU HAVE THE CHOICE OF:
Feel free to ask me any questions about sizing, however the general rule for
--Small is a waist of approximately 40" or less
--Medium I would recommend for most people, those who wear size medium, has diastasis, wants for use waist training, etc.
--Large is for thicker, plus sized, around pant size 14-20
--XL is for those who are size around 1X or above
Please contact me for help with sizing! It may differ for you depending on how drastically you changed during pregnancy, how long postpartum you are, whether you have diastasis, intend to waist train, or even if you are pregnant right now. Talking to me is fun and harmless, plus it gets us putting you in JUST the right item for you to have an optimal experience.

My doula philosophy is dedicated to a quality postpartum experience, one that does not gloss over the care needed postpartum. Because of this, the utmost care has been taken in choosing the fabric for my belly binding wraps. They are high quality Batik, Ankara, and Kente prints from specialty shops, and are an excellent heirloom piece for the birth. This wrap is beautiful enough to wear outdoors and help mother feel more herself after pregnancy. It is durable to last through multiple pregnancies, including being passed on to friends and family alike as pregnancy occurs. Consider this wrap a gift to aid in postpartum healing, to connect your birthing friend to the women and Ancestors that came before her and that will come after her.
Furthermore, with purchase comes with the opportunity to talk to me about any of your needs with the wrap for as long as you need me! I can answer questions, direct you towards other knowledgeable people in the birth and womb communities, as well as be a friendly ear who has used this product before.
Just tell me what you like! The only color that you really won't get a true one of is black, but there are gorgeous deep emeralds, blues, purple's, and more to choose from that I know you will find tempting.
