Like pregnancy and birth, postpartum is a transition that should be full of warmth, love and meaningful support. Although we are experienced and knowledgeable in all things newborn, we focus on holding mother’s through deeply nourishing practices that honor the process of healing and recovery. Our postpartum doula care is rooted in the knowing that postpartum is a physiologic process with a specific design for women’s needs after birth. It is our goal to turn away from societal norms and back to traditions that create sacred postpartum experiences.

postpartum belly binding

Postpartum belly binding is a practice in many different cultures that is found to be very beneficial for women who have just given birth. Pregnancy and birth make many changes to a mother's body. Binding is comfortable, supportive, and helps everything go back to its pre-pregnancy state as it recovers. Bending Willow Birth offers belly binding to women in Lexington, Kentucky

Helps your uterus and belly shrink back to pre-pregnancy size, supports relaxed stretched out muscles, holds the mother during such a vulnerable transition, promotes proper body alignment, pulls in separated abdominal muscles (helping in the healing of diastasis recti), gives the mother time to focus and reflect on how she is feeling, the long traditional wrap is tailored to your body, supports postpartum organs as they heal, helps relieve pain, and it feels good!

 

This postpartum belly binding session will include a long organic muslin wrap that will be used for 10-21 days, in home 1-hour wrapping session (including a wrapping lesson and womb massage), online tutorial video for continued wrapping.​

“Angelia-Bending Willow Birth is an absolutely amazing person! She was our postpartum doula from the time our baby was 5 days old until he was 3 months!! She was helpful with laundry, dishes and basically anything we needed.! We felt so comfortable leaving our newborn with her for a few hours while my partner and I rested, took that much needed shower, or got caught up on errands! Angelia is a fount of useful information, concerning postpartum care, newborn care, breastfeeding, and she even helped me give my baby his first sponge bath. We are forever grateful.”
