The custom of obiiwai (帯祝い) ceremony is believed to have existed during the Heian period (794-1185). The ancient Kojiki Records of Ancient Matters recounts the story of Empress Jingu, who wrapped a belly band around her body when she went to conquer the Three Hans, hoping that she would not give birth along the way. This tradition was originally performed by the imperial and warrior families and only became popular among the general public in the Edo period.
