How to Take Care of Your C-section Scar and Relieve Pain During Sex With Whitney SipplMar 14, 2023
When you have ACL surgery, you develop scar tissue – your surgeon sends you to a physical therapist to work out the scar tissue, regain mobility in your knee, and create stability within your whole body.
But when it comes to recovering from a C-section, it's minimized. You're left feeling like an outsider because you weren't educated on what to do next...and so you do nothing, you segment yourself from women who had vaginal deliveries, and you deal with the pain because you're afraid to do anything else.
How do you take care of your C-section scar so you can get back to functioning in life?
Enter pelvic floor physical therapist Whitney Sippl. Whitney was a guest of the podcast back in February 2022 (listen to her episode >>HERE<<) and our conversation about supporting your pelvic floor clarifies that you're considered postpartum if you've EVER had a baby.
