Exactly How to Do C-Section Scar Massage

by Apr 23, 2020

“Can I touch it yet?”

…I cautiously asked my pelvic health physiotherapist at my first postpartum appointment.

I was referring to my 5-weeks fresh C-section scar, after my first birth in the summer of 2015.

I didn’t want that scar.

I didn’t want that birth.

Yet, there I laid on her treatment table, fully engulfed in the healing of it, after 42 weeks of pregnancy, 37 hours of labor, an emergency C-section and a subsequent infection in the incision.

I was SOOOO nervous to touch that scar with my own hands.

I didn’t know what to do with it. How to handle it.

(A literal, “what do I do with my hands?!” moment. LOL.)

Was it safe? Was it healed? Was it ready?

C-section scar massage became an important part of my healing from that birth.

The physical benefits of Cesarean scar massage can be powerful for people in decreasing sensitivity around the scar, reducing sensations of pulling or tightness, or helping the scar tissue move with less restriction.

Watch this video where I detail exactly how to do the 4-Minute Cesarean Scar Massage protocol I have followed after both of my C-section recoveries.
