C-Section Recovery

April 16, 2022 • Massage Therapy, Women's Health, Pregnancy

April is Cesarean awareness month. According to Perinatal Services BC, the C-section rate rose to close to 37% in 2019/2020.

Whether planned or emergency, there are many ways that an RMT can help in recovery.

C Section 2
  • Massage – directly to the scar or to other areas if the body that may be feeling discomfort
  • Homecare – educational or appropriate stretching and strengthening exercises. I often give Pilates based exercises to help you feel strong again.
  • Time and space to relax and calm your nervous system to help your healing process.

  • There is no time limit on when seeing an RMT can be effective for c-section recovery, I have seen clients many years after delivery or a few short weeks.

    Please feel free to reach out if you or anyone you know could benefit from a helping hand in their recovery.
