Womb Wrap

Also known as a faja (pronounced fa ha), is a traditional healing technique that supports the ligaments of the reproductive system taking the pressure off them so they can heal and become stronger, supporting the uterus to sit in its optimum position. The wrap helps the uterus to correct alignment.

Belly binding /womb wrapping is used in many cultures worldwide by women to offer support to pelvic ligaments during physical excursion and post-pregnancy. The Womb wrap is more focused on the pelvic area, rather than the belly and abdominal muscles.

For full pelvic and abdominal wrapping, I would say go for the bengkung, a little more tricky and time-consuming but gives more coverage between the rib cage and hips.

Benefits of womb wrapping

I recommend these for women who may have weakened pelvic ligaments, symptoms of which can include:

  • Sciatica
  • Pelvic Pain
  • Pelvic Girdle Pain
  • Pubis Symphysis Disorder
  • Back Pain
  • Lower Abdominal pain
  • Endometriosis
  • Postnatal recovery

The belly-binding womb wrap helps women who have retroverted uterus (misaligned), often due to injured or weak supporting ligaments. Women with bowel or vaginal prolapse will also benefit from wearing the womb wrap.

When to wrap your womb

Wear the wrap during daily chores including cooking, cleaning, vacuuming, and looking after small children, if you stand often in the workplace. Wear the womb wrap for as long as you like, it may be readjusting and tightening when worn for long hours.

The more you wear the belly binding wrap, the more you will get the knack for tying it.

How Womb wrapping works:

When you tie the womb wrap you will feel a snug feeling around your hips and this is the fabric supporting the ligaments. Whilst wearing the womb wrap the ligaments get the chance to recover and repair.

Use during pregnancy to lift the womb off the pelvis relieving uncomfortable feeling of pressure on bladder and pelvis bones. The womb wrap, when used in pregnancy, can be fanned over the entire abdomen, offering further support and snugness.

After pregnancy, the wrap supports tired ligaments, whilst the uterus shrinks back down into the pelvic cavity. Womb binding also helps with swelling and water retention and at the same time offers comforting pressure to aid recovery.

Also recommended after cesarean section to offer additional support for the mother whilst holding the baby and getting back on her feet. The wrap should be comforting and if not then readjust or try again the next day.
