    72: Bengkung Belly Binding with Princess McKinney-Kirk from Bellibind

    Parenting Podcast – Episode 72: Bengkung Belly Binding with Princess McKinney-Kirk from Bellibind







    This week we have Princess Estocia McKinney-Kirk, owner and founder of Bellibind on the show. She officially launched BelliBind in 2013 as a way to help mothers “get their bodies back.” Several years and two children later, she realized a deeper need for honoring the womb and the transition into motherhood as sacred—a recognition that continues to shape the work they do at BelliBind.







    Based on the traditional Malaysian bengkung belly bind, the BelliBind method is more than just a post-birth wrap, it’s a revolutionary postpartum experience. After childbirth, it is extremely vital to feel confident and supported everyday. Mothers should be treated with tender love—wrapped in a BelliBind Hug!







    Princess McKinney is here to talk all about the benefits of the Bengkung belly bind for postpartum mothers!
