Squamish Physiotherapy Specializing in Pelvic Health & Chronic Pain

In Canada, 1 in every 3 babies is born by Cesarean Section, also known as Cesarean Birth. Given the lack of guidelines and helpful information about C Sections Cesarean recovery, many birthing people don’t get adequate guidance as they embark on their recovery.

Cesarean Birth ScarIf you have had a Cesarean Birth, you may be uncertain about how to deal with the resulting pain and movement challenges while also managing a newborn. You may be questioning when to return to exercise, how to do so safely, and when it is safe to progress your exercise program.

  • You will be given information on the “Gentle-Cesarean” or “Family-Centred Birth” and how to foster that experience.
  • You will learn early post-operative recovery strategies and restrictions to follow.
  • You will understand what signs and symptoms to watch out for after your birth.
