Cesarean Recovery

Summary of show:

Today’s episode is all about cesarean recovery. Maternity care has some blindspots when considering cesarean recovery + rehab protocol. With many other surgeries that are as serious as a cesarean, people are given clear rehab instructions and guidelines. However, with cesareans, very little guidance is given and most new parents are left to seek out resources on their own. In this episode, we take a deep dive into all things cesarean recovery and return to fitness with doctor of Physical Therapy and cesarean mom of 3, Amanda Fischer of Empower your Pelvis. She discusses special considerations for cesarean recovery, the “cesareans save your vagina” myth, and gives us tangible tips on how to support our clients in their cesarean recovery and return to fitness journey.
