The belly binding ceremony is a physical and spiritual art form that offers healing for the mother post-birth. This involves taking a long strip of cloth and knotting it around the torso from below the hips to under the chest to offer physical support and to help hasten the postpartum recovery period. Belly wrapping is known to be useful in helping the uterus shrink back in size, while the wrap strengthens, and tones the muscles and skin to stabilize the mother’s ligaments. This ceremonial practice may be performed as soon as 3 days postpartum.

Closing the Bones
The closing of the bones ceremony is a way to honor and celebrate a woman’s transition into motherhood. This indigenous practice involves a trusted birth partner to perform a sacred ritual using a cloth to physically and metaphysically close the open portals of a woman’s body and sacred womb space while the mother rests on her back in a healing and meditative state. This practice usually takes place within the first 40 days following birth.
