Belly binding is a traditional way to wrap the mother’s stomach after birth using a long cloth. This is different from the modern belly binds sold in stores, as it covers a larger area of the abdomen, and is tied in a special way to create a snug fit in all of the right places. Belly binding with a rebozo or cloth can be seen in many different cultures around the world from Malaysia to Mexico. It is a sacred tradition that is passed on from women to women during the postpartum healing period to ensure a rapid and healthy recovery.
