January Meeting - C-Section Recovery Therapy

Join the Dallas Birth Network as we welcome John James and Lauren Robertson, cofounders of the C-Section Recovery Center, to present on and demonstrate CSRT as well as of other techniques used in c-section recovery and preparing their clients for VBAC.

Most people assume that because c-sections are

performed every day, they are not a big deal. New mothers have an expectation that once a certain period of time has passed, once the scar has visibly closed, that they are “healed.” However, c-section births can be incredibly traumatic, both physically and emotionally. After the initial recovery period has passed, sometimes years later, many women will develop chronic conditions that are directly related to, but almost always dissociated from the c-section itself.

The C-Section Recovery Center has identified a predictable cluster of conditions that we attribute primarily to the combination of scar tissue adhesions, stagnant lymphatics, and emotional trauma that result from having a c-section. C-Section Recovery Therapy (CSRT), a hybrid of original and advanced massage therapy techniques developed in-house, addresses these primary issues and any associated compensatory patterns. We combine this hybrid hands-on approach with education on breathing techniques, proper hydration, nutrition, and exercise.

For women who are pregnant or planning to conceive again, our treatment is an effective way to prepare for a VBAC or VBAmC. C-sections lead to a tight, thickened band of tissue across the pelvis that is created by the proliferation of scar tissue adhesions between skin, fat, muscle, and viscera that block vital pathways resulting in stagnant fluids in the pelvis, inflammation, and pain. We refer to this phenomenon as “the tourniquet effect,” and it is a major factor in why pursuing a VBAC is both painful and frequently discouraged. Releasing this tourniquet effect results in more elastic, flexible tissue layers that are able to move independently of one another, which allows the uterus to drop into the pelvic bowl rather than being shoved up into the diaphragm and viscera, the end result being a more comfortable pregnancy and lower-risk, less painful birth.
