In 2016, we published a post about healing adhesions after a c-section and massage for helping them heal. This post went viral in terms of our little blog and has been the most read post in the years since. Here is a link to that original article:
One thing about being a birth worker is there is no end to learning. Labor can be like a puzzle in which you need to find the right piece at a good place for the rest of the labor to come together. Baby has the inside track so we want to follow the baby. Adhesions can affect that track and/or how efficiently the uterus can contract.
Aside from massage, are there other things you can do to help heal adhesions after your c-section? Seeing a pelvic floor therapist is beneficial in so many ways and can also be helpful for healing adhesions.
There are some exercises you can do at your home as well. Make sure you have the clearance from your health care provider before attempting exercises, but below is a video with instructions to help heal adhesions.
If you are interested in attempting a VBAC with your next birth, please feel free to reach out. I love supporting VBAC Moms. I believe doula support is even more important for labors following a c-section birth. For more information on attempting a VBAC, please check out https://www.facebook.com/vbacfacts
Now, for your video. I hope you find it helpful.
