    Lightbulb Postpartum massage to shrink stomach

    I understand that in Malaysia it is very popular for pregnant women to seek the services of “bidans” (midwifes) to perform postpartum full-body massages in which the stomach is wrapped to "shrink" the postpartum belly and return the uterus back to its proper place. Does anyone know if anyone provides this service in Hong Kong?

    The Indian masseuses are also good at this. I used a woman called Mala and she massaged my stomach daily for 2mths. Instead of wrapping I used corsets that held my tummy in. Each week as my stomach shrunk we would tie the corset tighter or when it became to big I would use a smaller one.

    Mala's contact details are here:

    I forgot to mention that you can only do the stomach massages if you've had a normal delievery.

    Actually, you can also do stomach massage if you've had a c-section, but you'll need to wait a few weeks for the wounds to heal. Mala does massage for c-section, or I can give you the contacts of anohter Indian masseus who does a lot of moms and babies

    Hi, would you please give me the contact of the Indian masseur mentioned? Have you try both her and Mala? Who would you recommend? I am giving birth in 2 weeks so just want to get prepared. Thank you very much.
