Tips for C-Section Scar Healing

c-section postpartum Dec 10, 2021

Where are all my fellow c-section mammas at..?


For decades i had dreamed of a beautiful, unmedicated home birth. But due to a complicated pregnancy, i had accepted the fact that a hospital birth was the safest option for me. I came well prepared with an incredible doula, birthing techniques, breathing techniques, pre natal yoga, pre natal pilates, all the things. After 20 hours of unmedicated labor, the mention of an emergency c-section was more disappointment than i could ever have imagined. If you’ve been there too then you know. But we did it! We did what we needed to do to keep ourselves and our babies safe. We are brave. We are strong. We are RESILIENT.


Most likely a c-section wasn’t what you chose for your own birth story either. But we birthed. We became mammas. And it was beautiful and stunning and we got through it. I cried through mine. I cried because it wasn’t how i wanted things to go. I cried because i felt like a failure. But i didn’t fail. I gave BIRTH that day. And i look back now with only happy memories. I want you to know that. If you are a recent c-section mamma and you are grieving because of it. I want you to know that one day you will only remember the happy parts. I look at these photos now (over 6 years later) and they make me smile. They make me teary eyed with joy and at how beautiful it all actually was. My scar is barely noticeable now thanks to the good advice i received from my doula, my OB, and several others.


I’ve compiled a C section scar healing PDF with all the techniques i used to heal my own scar. This is what i wish they handed out at the hospital. This guide comes free when you purchase any of my courses.


But here are my top 3 scar healing tips:


  1. Silicone Patches You can find these at most pharmacies or on amazon and can start wearing them once your final scar dressing has been removed. They work best when worn for 12 weeks (cleaning or replacing every few days)
  2. Vitamin E Oil After a full 12 weeks of wearing silicon patches, use a high quality vitamin e oil and rub it vertically up and down across the length of the scar every night 
  3. Scar Massage Once the actual wound has healed and as soon as you feel comfortable doing it, pick the scar up and roll it in between your thumb and forefinger, working your way along the length of the scar to prevent it from adhering to the fascia below. This will prevent pain and adhesion issues later
