Why did I develop my programs?

  • After my three cesarean deliveries, I could not find rehab programs designed for moms who had c-sections. Most other inpatient surgeries receive post-surgical rehab, so, with my clinical training background, I developed a rehab-focused program.
  • Recovery from a c-section is different from a vaginal delivery. C-section moms need information about how to modify daily activities to minimize pain around the incision and reduce overcompensation with the back muscles. Additionally, c-section moms need specific and progressive abdominal exercises.
  • Scar tissue can disrupt the productivity of fascia movement, visceral mobility, and musculoskeletal function. Immobility and tightness in one area leads to over recruitment and adaptation of other areas of your body. This creates compensatory movement patterns and pain, which can lead to kinesiophobia – fear of pain due to movement.
  • A c-section is not protective against pelvic floor dysfunction. Risk factors include the weight of your baby, constipation during pregnancy, respiratory conditions that include chronic coughing, pelvic floor issues prior to delivery, or if you attempted a vaginal delivery before experiencing a c-section.

Are you thinking about trying for a VBAC next pregnancy? Rehabilitation from your previous pregnancy and cesarean delivery is an important step to physically and mentally preparing you for a VBAC.
