  • my first c-section was 10 years ago. and I just had my second c-section 5 weeks ago. and I developed a staph infection 3 weeks after. will this benefit me? and I am experiencing the lower back pain already.

  • I never understand why people say c sections are an “easy” way or something. I’ve had two natural births and while they were hard I honestly think c section mummas are so amazing and strong!! The recovery is so much harder on them too! I would be absolutely petrified to have a c section and would be the one to be having a panic attack so anyone who can go through that to deliver their baby into this world is like a wonder woman to me!!

  • Keloid and so much itch after 3 years for me. I went to a Dermatologist and paid $80 for him to tell me to use maderma. LOL. It still itches. Round two in progress and going to try for a VBAC! Thanks for sharing your story.:)

  • Wish u haven’t mentioned the taking organ out of the body part specially when u said that u r happy u didnt know that, im having a c section and i wish i never opened this video, dislike.

  • I had bilateral DIEP FLAP reconstruction and my plastic surgeon sent me home with ZERO post operative care info, including massage.

    As a result my abdominal scar feels like a knotted rope, stapled to the back of my pelvis!
    I had the operation in Dec 2015.
    Is it too late to massage out the knots?

  • It is the best thing I have seen so thank you! I could not do it 1 month after C sectin, but now I am gratefull. How many times should I do the movements?

  • Hi, thanks for this, I’ll start once I’m 8 weeks post op, hopefully by then inflammation would have gone down…right now I’m 5 weeks post op and my scar is healing well, but I still have a lot of inflammation on my belly and around my scar. I wanted to know if it helps with the c-section pouch or shelf I was left with after my operation? I had no idea they leave you like that, I was planning for natural birth and prepared for that but end up having an emergency c-section, now I’m left with this thing and not sure what to do. Thanks.

  • I use laser hair removal, which I find so much more effective than waxing. I think my laser lady zapped my scar the first time I went back after delivery, so within eight months of delivery. I don’t know if that contributed to my scar keloiding. ��
    Have you heard of Plasma injections for getting rid of the scar?
    I love your reframing beautiful baby Vs ugly scar. ��

  • My experience was absolutely terrifying! My daughter was 5 weeks prem and I went into labour naturally. About an hour into consistent contractions her heart rate was getting super high. They decided on an emergency c-section right away as they thought she had a severe infection which was causing her heart rate to Climb so fast then decel then back etc it got up to 200bpm. They rushed me down to the operating room and said they didn’t have time for. Normal epidural type c-section I had to go under a General. It was so scary, so I missed my babies birth and my husband couldn’t be there either. I woke up and met her about 3 hours later and I tell you what waking up not knowing if your baby was ok or not was the most terrifying experience. She did end up having sepsis so she was very sick but she is fighter and is doing amazing now at 9 months. I still think natural births are much nicer recovery wise after having two natural but both are definitely a birth I don’t care what anyone says. A baby is still coming out of your body!!

  • **thank you!** I’ve been having bladder irritation/increased frequency post-laparotomy and feel like I have to pee even when I just have if I try to lie on my side… my gyno and GP didn’t have an explanation and tests haven’t shown anything. Scar tissue! Of course. I have been massaging, but not frequently enough and not the third layer. I will try this and hopefully it helps!

  • Keep this up ladies… I’ve just had my c section scar revised, which was “grossly disfiguring” after putting up with it for twenty years. I had it fixed during a TAH. I’m 6 weeks post surgery and will use scar massage this time to make sure it doesn’t happen again

  • Hi Lynn, I actually had no idea on what to do with my scar.I am diabetic pregnancy.After delivery I was being massage by an indonesian woman and I really doubt on her massaging my scar…After watching your video I am glad that I can diy myself…Thank you so much for creating this video…Yes my doctor in my country does not revealed on this massaging scar everytime I went back for checkup.

  • Asallam.u.Allikum hello…
    I have a c section one month ago n I have not had a full body massage yet. Is it necessary to have full body massage after C section

  • Thank you so much for sharing this! I had my first c section 6 weeks ago and my incision feels really tight almost like I can’t stand up straight all the way like it’s pulling. My back has been very achy (upper and lower) and when I go for a walk, my upper back in particular is really aches. I tried to run a few steps to see how it feels and it felt like I couldn’t fully extend my body, it kind of felt like I was running while folded in half, if that makes sense. Do you think this is adhesion related or should I be concerned with something else? Thank you for any insight!

  • I’m goin on my third C-section
    I wish I would have come across this video sooner

    I will be using this to my advantage about a week after surgery I will be belly binding too

  • Kind of wish I hadn’t watched this:-( i didn’t know about the fact that they remove your uterus and now I’m super freaked out by c-sections when i wasn’t before:(

  • Hello I’ve had 2 csections that formed a ton of scar and fibrosis tissue. My scar was depressed and painful even 7 years later. I just recently had surgery to get this removed. I now have a 7 inch incision. Much like a new c-section incision. I am at 3 weeks post op but have a lot of inflammation. Can I still massage my incision or do I need to wait for the inflammation to go down first? Thank you

  • My scar is exactly like yours after 10 months except a bit crooked n I feel it through clothes…. used to think I did something wrong during recovery….this video helped,

  • Just had my third c section. None were planned although my last one wasn’t going to be a natural one but she came early. It hurts. And I hate hate hate it when people say it is the easy way out. I have heard it and it makes my blood boil. It is NOT easy. It is scary. But all worth it. My kids are my world

  • This video is so disturbing…lol
    Makes my scar I have hurt just watching this video.

    I’m sorry but u can’t do these messages rite afterwards.
    It hurts so bad when they have to push on ur belly to get out the extra blood…

    I’m so nervous I just had a baby last year and now goin thru it again…good luck for me

  • My story is a lil different i went to get out the van and almost fall and it caused a ruptured membrane. Was induced and it didn’t work,my baby was in distress after 28 hours. My scar is raised a little more than yours and i hate feeling it or my husband touching it but still afraid to get rid of it. Thank you. The video really helped

  • Everybody can’t afford that…how about better procedures during the sew up on the table after delivery of the baby…or how about session included with delivery for those that have a c section with a massage therapist or pt that specializes with the scar tissue after a section…this video was not realistic or fair and all of us that feel the shame and emotional distress like this woman can’t be “treated” to this procedure and I’m in Michigan also and suffering after 3 c sections to deliver 3 boys…and I can’t afford that so now what (������������)

  • I got a wax a few months ago and it hurts near the keloid scar. Bad! Very tender. I couldn’t deal. My scar always hurts. Especially after I eat and I feel bloated. My son also steps on my stomach and that area. So I thought it didn’t heal right and it was just me. Good to know it isn’t!

  • I wish there was a video like this when I had my c-section 7 years ago. Now my scar is flat but it still itches. Now 7 years later and 2 more kids and another on the way and didn’t need another c-section for my other 2 and not going having one this time either

  • I had a c section my scar looks exactly like yours just last week I got my first wax. I was definitely scared but it wasn’t as painful as I thought it was gonna be.

  • THANK YOU!!! Same here!!! �� I just had a wax too, but I had one about two months ago (5 months postpartum) it was fine. They stay away from my scar.

  • The fact that we both have a keloid scar from a ceserean AND my son’s middle name is Liam…. really makes me smile! Then you are a beautiful queen that’s talking about THIS….So glad I found you and this video. Needed that for my confidence! One day it just raised up and I was so confused because it was flat for a long time. I hate it but I love my overall body

  • They also don’t tell you that your fresh incision might “fart” when they transfer you from stretcher to bed. Mine did, it was very weird and embarrassing.

    My first was a vaginal birth (with an episiotomy), 15 months later I had my second via csection at 32 wks. I’m 18 wks with #3 and I’m opting for a repeat csection. The recovery was easier for me. I dunno, it’s kind of a cop out but there’s more control and structure to it. I just really don’t want to deal with the uncertainty and potential crises that can arise during vaginal birth. All my pregnancies have been considered high risk for baby so… I dunno. If I HAD to, I’d obviously give birth naturally but since I have the choice, I’m making it for myself. We’ll see. It’s still early days but I just couldn’t do another 5 hours of pushing and having my vagina torn to shreds (unlikely to happen again but the experience turned me off). It took months and months for me to competely heal from an episiotomy vs a few weeks from a csection. Just walk A LOT and that’ll help. My daughter was in nicu so I had to get up 2-4x a day in hospital then one daily trip after discharge.

  • Thanks for sharing i thought i was the only one who have big keloids after my c-section, and yes it still itchy sometimes and hurt.

  • Who said a c-section isn’t a birth? Like seriously, how moronic, we sometimes doesn’t get a choice, I had to have all four of my children by c-section they wouldn’t of survived a natural birth…. if someone had said that to me I’d lose it! TFS, am glad you were able to have two natural after one C!

  • I had my baby 2 years and 9months ago. Sometimes my scar is still so painful. I can’t cough while lying on the bed or laugh hard. It really hurts especially at the edges of my scar. I have consulted twice and nothing diagnosed. I just wish to find if you can help me with specific massage for this? Thank you so much.

  • I had 2 c sections and my scar looks similar to yours! I’m thinking about having it removed because sometimes it is itchy! Thanks for sharing your story!

  • Who would get a aax after ac section? that sounds crazyy. Thanks for sharing your storyyy andd are those pics really of u or from Google? ��they moved so quickly.

  • Liam is adorable! It takes a while for the healing process. I never wax near my scar area. Do you experience scar pain during your menstrual cycle?

  • Hey am from India i found your video very helpful.. Because it’s been a year and my scar looks exactly like yours and it hurts when my son jumps on my stomach.. I was worried that did something go wrong or i made mistakes.. But thanks alot your video helped me..��

  • Thank you so much for this video… I was so scared to do this but did it anyway… it’s my first time and I am finding it difficult to pick up scar not because it hurts but because it’s so low and tight…do you have any tips for this?

  • 2 years post partum my scar is still red and tender but closed up well. Is there anything I could do so it wouldn’t be so tender and red?

  • Hi! I am 6 months postpartum and I still have little pain when I touch my scar like you do it in the video and I also I still have one spot above scar which is about 1 inch and is numb(I feel nothing when I touch there). Is that because doctor did smth wrong during surgery what coulf be? Also I do have diastasis recti but I started gym and hopefully I will heal soon.

  • I had to have a emergency c section…i had awful experience.. My epidural wore off and the didnt wait til i was numb to cut me open. I felt everything they was going. I was screaming and crying so they ended up putting me to sleep.

  • You are amazing, thank you so much for this video. I haven’t been able to workout in years because of the pulling and tugging sensations I would get in my c section scar. You are a god send, god bless you.

  • 12 yrs later yes it’s still itchy. The scar tissue inside is deep and if you extra weight around your tummy it gets sweaty…..I don’t keloid but you can get it surgically removed

  • Ok so my mom at times shows me this scar and says this was your c section. It does look like a butt. And I had a c section and mines is way different so I didn’t even really believe my mom��

  • Until we see your C-Section, it’s like an untrained person without hands on experience teaching another. I HAD TO GIVE YOU A THUMBS ����

  • Does this help the dreaded c-section shelf. I’ve lost all my weight but still have the bulge over the scar? I’ve had 3 sections within 7-yrs and really worked with PT on the DR but this part has yet to go away! Thanks!

  • Thank you for this video! I’m 3 weeks post open myomectomy and intend to start trying this massage maybe in another month or so, so this was very helpful to watch rather than just read about it ��������

  • I had a c section 25 years ago and I noticed that it started giving me issues with pulling sensations, my lower back and bladder. I am trusting this will help with alleviating my discomfort. Looking forward to doing this. Thank you.

  • I’m four months post partum, this video is awesome. I’ve been massaging gently because the middle is tighter still, giving it the pouch appearance. I’ve also been using a vibrating wand to massage the tissue, does that help some?

  • Hello! I have a lot of adhesions from the 3 scars and I’ve tried doing this type of thing for years but until recently there was too much emotion tied up with manipulating the scar and I always had to stop. I have had a bit of help with that and I’m trying again but I can’t get my skin to roll like that, it’s well and truly stuck down in a number of places. Will this still help, even if I can only do circular motions? I would love to resolve this because I get a LOT of pain on one side of my 12 year old scar

  • Just found you thru your interview on the VBAC Link! I had an unexpected C-section in early January, and I have my cycle back already. During the two ovulations I’ve had so far, my C-section scar hurts, particularly on the right side which is the side that has been slowest to heal (and my doctor stood on that side!). Could this indicate scar tissue or adhesions around my ovaries or something like that?

  • Thanks for sharing your story hun, you are one brave mama. Your battle scar is everything, giving birth is definitely the hardest one for me, its so painful AF lol and I had it in a natural way. Natural CS et all, all mothers are wonderful we are all supermoms. ������

  • I’ve had 3 c sections and the doctor said it would be life threatening for me to have another baby due to the amount of scar tissue from my surgeries will this help me break it down so I can have another baby I don’t want to close the door on having more kids if there is hope

  • You’re so brave �� thanks for sharing your story! I didn’t have a c-section, but it’s really interesting to hear people’s experiences and how it turned out for them.

  • I’m 12 weeks post section with one previous 3 years ago. I do this pretty consistently and I never know if I’m doing it correctly. I’m pretty aggressive but not sure if there is actually any release. When do you start to see and feel results and are there any results that I would physically see or feel?

  • I have had both my first a vaginal birth, and I just had an emergency c-section less than 2 weeks ago. I would prefer a vaginal birth the recovery is a lot less painful, although I had a long (over 8 months) recovery from my vaginal birth. My first week has been really tough with a lot of pain from the c-section.

  • This is amazing. I’ve had c section 8 years ago and I tried massaging for the first time after watching your video. I can already feel the difference in the first massage. Wish I’d watched this earlier. I’ve had issues with frequent peeing, I’m positive this will fix it. Does this help fix a blocked Fallopian tube issue as well?

  • Should there be concern if there is bleeding out of the vagina after scar tissue massaging 7 weeks post partum? It’s like a period bleed

  • I had c section 18 months ago and recently i started to feel pain in my back and bladder irritation. I have tried this massage and feeling better. I hope to fully recover from my problem soon.

  • I do ceasars all the time at work..i warm up the room abit before hand..i would be suprised if you were naked..usaully u have a gown on..and then you are draped..shakes are very common..we always give u nice warm blankets:-)
    I always chat and always offer my hand to you x especially when having yr block..i keep dad besides u all the time..i take the pics for you, its very special…its actually all very quick..im glad you think its still a birth..anyone that says its not a birth is not a friend of yours..its a beautiful wonderful moment in your life..the uterus is not pulled right out of your body..rare..very rare..

  • Thank you so much! I wish I had found this sooner, I have a deep scar which is definitely stuck to the muscle and probably bladder too, I am very early pregnancy, so hoping the babe will help loosen it all up but I will do some gentle massage in the later stages to help it along… much gratitude, I have shared this with other c section sisters.

  • Hi Dr A!

    Thanks so much for the shout out! Ayla can’t wait to meet you!!

    Questionwhen should I start using the cerave lotion? When Wound is healed and stitches are dissolved/ silicon glue comes off? He used that instead of bandages.

    Thanks again! Loving your videos, You’ve some serious influencer �� power ✨

  • Scarguard really helps with keloid scars! Being an Afro-Latina my scars tend to keloid fast and ever since my friend told me about Scarguard I’ve used it for everythiinnnggggg. Thank you for sharing your story! Mommies are really superhuman.

  • Hi. I am doing the same actions around my scar as is the video, but not really sure what is meant by ‘releasing the muscle’? I don’t understand what I’m feeling for. I can feel more solid lumps and bumps underneath (scar tissue I assume), but I can’t really tell which bits do/don’t move as they should so don’t know if I’m doing it right or in a way that will have any benefit. Thanks.

  • Would massaging be beneficial after an abdominal sub total hysterectomy? I am two weeks after surgery now and still experiencing some minor pain when emptying bladder.

  • Hi Lynn, thanks for posting. I had my first bikini cut c section 21 years ago and I started to go pee during the night multiple times about ten years ago. You were right that it can hunt you even after so many years. Your info is helpful and I hope you can refer someone who lives in Seattle where I live for the pelvic floor issues?

  • I just started massaging my scar its been 12 weeks since my c section and the area seems to get swollen right after i message it, is that normal?

  • Hello, I had a hrystectomy almost 8months ago, and have bladder issues incontinence. 1. Can I use your technique and massage that scar? And 2. Would there be even a 5% chance that it might have anything to do with this? I am really quite desperate for a solution.

  • These videos are so helpful thank you. Hope you don’t mind, I just started a channel and have done a video on my C Section experience https://youtu.be/KyuiDcnKGSk and I have linked your c section scar massage videos:)

  • I absolutely loved my elective c-section, soo much easier than pushing out my 11 pounder first born. I was walking around 3 hours after and went home the next day

  • I’m afraid to try this, I was badly infected with my section plus I had a haematoma. Just recently as well I had key hole surgery to remove my right Fallopian tube due to an ectopic. What do you suggest I try or how do I get around this fear?

  • I wish this information was given to me 14 years ago! It’s likely too late now, but I’ll try it anyway. (Do you think it’s too late?) Thank you! Wonderful video you have a calming voice and re-assuring way of communicating.

  • Should you work your way up to doing all 3 layers…ie begin the second after several comfortable massages of the first layer? Or should all 3 layers be done each time you massage?

  • I have 3 kids and had 3 c sections. Such a hard recovery! Never underestimation how anyone could think it’s the easy way out! Great video. Thanks for sharing your experience

  • What do I do now that I’ve just found this video and never knew about it and I’m 17 weeks pregnant again after a previous csection that was over 2 years ago?

  • This really helped me �� I have a scar just like yours and I thought I did something wrong and I thought something was wrong with me because the inside was still hurting thank you so much for this ❤️❤️❤️

  • Hi firstly thank you so much for sharing I’ve had 4 c sections and I suffer from terrible lower back pain I can’t stand up sometimes. I live UK where can you recommend I go for help please?

  • I wish I had that problem. In 2016 I had fibroid surgery that left 5 keloids on my stomach then 3 months later I found out I was pregnant with my third baby after being told I couldn’t have anymore. Due to that surgery I had to have a c-section that left a huge scar and a even bigger keloid that hurts all the time and itches. The keloid catches on stuff and pulls. To the point where my obgyn sent me to a plastic surgeon but they don’t deal with keloids anymore… What can I do?

  • My mom has that too. Although she has less extra skin, my mom just has a little fat. And she is a very small women. So it makes it look like she has a “butt” effect. God bless this women, it’s hard for women to show that on tv.

  • When i had my 4 sections i had a surgical gown on it covers the front but is open at the back and under that you are naked but i think they just lift it up while they do the op. That is on until you go into your room and change into your own pjs. Atleast in Ireland thats how it works ��

  • Thanks so much for this video and all the information you share in your channel, Lynn. This video in particular has helped me hugely in my recovery after my C-section. There is nothing out there that compares to the help you are giving out here. I refer back to this video every few months when I feel my scar tightening again. I’m so grateful! Please keep up the great work!
