Lowery Birth Services
Our mission is to support Hampton Roads families as they grow. We offer Hypnobabies Childbirth Education in both group and private class formats. We believe in making birth better by offering loving support, informative education, and peaceful, comfortable, birth through the use of childbirth hypnosis. We are also proud to offer traditional Bengkung belly binding services, for a more soothing and gentle postpartum stage.
At Lowery Birth Services, we believe birth is not inherently painful or scary, but that it has been deeply ingrained in us to believe so. We use medical grade hypnosis in our Hypnobabies Childbirth Education Classes to promote a relaxed and comfortable birth. We offer a discount on our Bengkung belly binding services when you attend our 6 week Hypnobabies Childbirth Education series.
What is Belly Binding?
Belly binding is a traditional east Asian practice that many women choose to utilize during the postpartum period. The Bengkung belly binding that we practice is specific to the Malaysian culture. The binding process typically involves winding long, thin strips of cloth around the torso, using a special technique that helps support and encourage healing of a woman's uterus and organs after birth. This may be done with or without a special handmade warming paste containing healing herbs. Alternatively, mothers may choose to utilize belly binding during pregnancy, to help gently cradle and support the womb, eliminating common pregnancy discomforts.
Adara Lowery, owner, doula, and childbirth educator supports each and every client with a personalized focus on their birth wishes and goals. She is fully trained as a Bengkung belly binder, and certified as a birth doula and childbirth educator. It is her belief that adequate training and certifications, years of experience, and continued education is what makes Lowery Birth Services so great.
