Are you an active woman who just had a C-section?
Are you worried that you'll never be strong enough to return to your sport?
Are you afraid that your abs will always look "floppy, weak, and saggy"?
You are not alone.
You never expected to have a C-birth.
And so, you weren't prepared. Not for the pain, not for the weakness, and certainly not for the recovery.
You are overwhelmed, sleep-deprived, and trying to keep a little human alive.
This injury is unlike anything you've ever experienced.
You know that you're not the first woman to have a C-birth. You see other women back to running, weight training, yoga. They look happy, strong, pain-free.
But how did they get there?
It's hard for you to touch your scar.
Actually, it's hard for you to look at it too. This core used to be really strong. Now it looks puffy, saggy, and soft.

I believe that a full postpartum recovery is a RIGHT, not a PRIVILEGE.
As an Athletic Therapist for 20 years, I've heard too often from my active moms and athletes that their questions about returning to exercise are often dismissed.
“Of course you have pain/incontinence/chronic weakness. You had a C-section.”
While these symptoms are common - they do not have to be your new normal.
You have a RIGHT to pain-free activity for the rest of your life. And, if you’re willing to put in a bit of work at the beginning, you WILL be running, jumping, and throwing - just like you used to.
“Imagine if you could move freely and confidently in any activity you wanted. Imagine the type of Athlete and Mother you would be.”

What folks are saying about the “Cesarean Recovery for Athletes” Program
Candice, 6 months postpartum
“As an Athletic Therapist, I am used to serving patients. It was refreshing to have the focus on me, my recovery, and my needs.
I learned to respect my body.
You got my very stuck scar to move again.”
Jenn, 8 months Postpartum
“I bought online exercise programs during COVID but they didn’t address my diastasis nor Cesarean incision. I thought pain in my scar was just a normal part of exercising forevermore after C-section - but it’s not.
Learning to massage my scar, and relearning how to use my core, made all the difference.
I wish I had started with this first!”
Amal, 1 week postpartum
“I LOVE that the live classes could be accessed later in case I missed one. As a new mom, my schedule was pretty unpredictable.
I also really appreciated the opportunity to interact with other moms, ask questions and get exercise cuing in real time.
The community was more important than I could've imagined.”

Program cost covered by Athletic Therapy benefits or your Health Care Spending Account
*Payment via installments option available.
Congratulations on making YOU a priority.
All prices listed are in CAD. No taxes for international students.
*Scar tissue can remodel indefinitely; however, the most effect time to make a big difference with SELF massage is in the first 6 months postpartum.
If you’re past the 6 month mark, fascial mobilization + use of tools is more effective. Connect with your perinatal therapist for an individualized plan.
