Postpartum Recovery & Slimming After Birth
Self Care Postpartum Recovery Kit
I am a mother myself, so I probably know what you are thinking and what is causing you to stay up at night.. All your worries and anxiety of birth and postpartum recovery and slimming down after birth..
This is a difficult time to be a new mother with so many restrictions due to the pandemic. Should I risk having a confinement nanny? Is it safe to bring in a massage therapist to help me recover? My husband lost his job, can I even afford to get any help for my confinement?
The period after birth is the most crucial time for you to heal. And let’s face it, like me, you want to start slimming down as soon as possible and get back in shape.
Before I go on, let me introduce myself.. My name is Salwa Salim. If you’ve start your research about Postnatal Massage or Jamu, you’d probably have come across my interviews, features, or works related to Jamu and postpartum care. I founded the leading postnatal massage company in Singapore, Mummy’s Massage.
My goal is to help women recover and slim down afterbirth. I believe all women should learn to love themselves and practice self-care. You cannot pour from an empty cup, so take care of yourself first so you can take care of others. And I will help you achieve this.
As the founder of Mummy’s Massage, I imagined my postnatal period to be a time of relaxation and pampering. Little did I know my husband got posted to Washington D.C when I was pregnant. My postnatal period became a time of isolation, pain and depression. I had to go through the confinement period all by myself without any family or friends.
But I was determined to receive the full benefits of Jamu and Bengkung belly binding. By my next pregnancy, I was prepared. I had created a DIY version where I can perform self-care and do everything myself. True enough baby came early, and my mother didn’t reach me in time to help me with my postpartum period.
Fast forward 2020, with the pandemic when my clients are stuck at home with the circuit breaker, I decided to create this kit and its instructions not only for my clients, but for all the mothers in Singapore. The wombkit is:
Update 2022: Not only is it a big hit in Singapore and Malaysia, it is also a big hit with postpartum women in the U.S! Collaborating with Birth Matron, we have expanded and supplied our very own Postpartum Wombkit all the way to the U.S and will soon be available worldwide! See what these American ladies have to say about the bengkung bellybind and the postpartum wombkit!

Made with 100% plant parts, these special mixed herbs are have medicinal properties to help with soothing pain, speed up recovery of stitches and prevent infection. Can be used as feminine wash or soak (sitz bath).
Specially formulated massage oil infused with healing properties of lemongrass and ginger, this massage oil is best used during the postnatal period for postpartum massage. It has a fragrant smell with medicinal properties, ideal for use by massage therapist for mothers after birth.
Did You Know?
Yes you read that right. The first 6 weeks is the most important time for you to flatten your tummy and to reshape your body. This is because it takes 6 weeks for your womb to shrink to it orginal pre-pregnancy state. The bengkung bellybind will help the womb to shink and go back to its original location. By binding your abdomen, it ensures that your tummy will not end up flabby and loose.
If you are a second time mother (or more) you will know what I am talking about. The excess skin, the flabbiness immediately afterbirth and few weeks following it. If you use the bengkung bellybind, your tummy will feel secure and you can see immediate differences the moment you put on the bengkung bellybind.
And even if your womb has shink and go back to its orginal size and location, what about your skin? Your skin has stretched so much in the past 9 months. Our Jamu Belly Balm / cream will help with the elasticity of your skin. It will make your skin “hot” which helps with breakind down the fats, and make your skin tighter and tauter.
Our Postpartum WombKit has all the necessary items you need for slimming. Its the only safe and natural way to slim down afterbirth that does not involve dieting or exercise which is unsafe in the early stages of afterbirth. Our WombKit has all natural ingredients with herbal remedy that is safe for any new mother and her baby.
Most important question is.. Does it really work?
This is me and my 3 kids below 3 years old when my baby is 41 days old.
No diet. No exercise. Full breastfeed. Full of energy.
And with a flat tummy and slim body.
Our Postpartum WombKit comes with step-by-step instructions to help you every step of your way, with detailed illustrations, videos, and explanations, so you know exactly what to do. It has been tested by busy mothers, local and international! And 100% of the mothers we surveyed have found it to be easy to follow. If all these first time new mothers can do it, so can you!
I am doing confinement by myself, will I be able to do all these by myself?
YES! We have designed this Postpartum Self Care Recovery Kit to be easy to use without any professional help. The fully illustrated drawings (and coming soon videos) will help you. We have a community page in Facebook where you can ask all the questions that you have
I have a confinement nanny / masseuse, can I still use these WombKit?
YES! In fact your confinement nanny / masseuse should be familiar and be able to help you to use some or all of these item. You can choose the Therapist Kit to have the Lemongrass massage oil included. Show them the instructions so they can learn to help you too!
I have given birth 3 days ago, 3 months ago, 3 years ago, can I still use this?
YES! This WombKit is beneficial to any Mamas at any stage. The most effective time to use the Batik Bengkung Bellybind for slimming effect is right after birth. It takes 6 months for your womb to shrink back to its original position, so you can still use it.
Can I choose the colour of my Batik Bengkung Bellybind?
The Batik Bengkung Bellybind will be given to you at random. You are not able to choose the design and colours, but we assure you we have chosen nice bright colours that will definitely uplift your mood!
How come the wombkit my friend received is different from me?
Depending on the nature of the herbal product that are handpicked, their availability is subjected to seasonal changes and weather. For example, during rainy season we are not able to sun dry the leaves and roots to make the herbal balm, hence we will use the same plant and extract its oil to make into a cream instead. The properties of the product does not change and the benefits remain the same.
