C-Section Recovery

Recovery from C-Section is challenging for many women and a deeper approach is required to ensure that their recovery is truly an inside-out affair. Just like the Diastasis Recti client, there needs to be a deep assessment of the woman’s core strength and connection and then a programme involving hands on massage therapies, nutrition, scar tissue release, postural re-alignment work before we finally get to the  ‘core restoring’ exercise part of the puzzle. C-Section mums simply need more help and as a HCR Coach I am deeply trained to assist you in your deep recovery and return to awesome, fully functional abdominals.


No matter how long ago you experience a C-Section type incision and for whatever reason, if you are experiencing discomfort, the Burrell Method For Holistic C-Section Recovery will probably give you the freedom that you thought wasn’t possible ever again.


In the UK nearly 1/4 of births are via C-Section, many more women experience the procedure throughout their lives for other gynaecological procedures yet there is no real guidance on how to heal successfully from such a major procedure and successfully reconnect to the core never mind deal with the soft-tissue issues (adhesions and scar tissue) that arise from these types of procedures.


And thanks to the continual rise in gynaecological conditions that require entry to the Pelvic Cavity via the C-Section procedure and the rise in Hysterectomy for the menopausal woman, the need for an holistic programme that addresses the need for a growing and sizeable portion of any countries female population is way overdue.


For many women who experience slow, poor or painful healing, the appearance of and lack of ability to connect with their abdomen and Pelvic Floor post C-Section is a huge concern, so as a soft-tissue therapist, Post Natal fitness and wellness educator, the help of some very learned colleagues and as someone who has managed to make sense of the procedure and how finally, to recover well.  I created this Holistic programme for C-Section Recovery.


And with not a sit-up in sight, this is all about healing INSIDE OUT!  The emphasis is squarely on these fundamental pillars that help us to create a BESPOKE programme for you!  No one-size-fits-all here!

‘CAN DO’ strategies for helping you REST and DE-STRESS.  The high Cortisol levels associated with the Post Natal period also retard healing and cause you to hold fat around your middle. This programme helps you to help yourself to not only a better looking belly but one that FUNCTIONS and supports your Pelvic, Core and overall health.    


If you can relate to any of the following issues, then the Rehabilitation Programme after birth, then this is the perfect fit.

  • You experience pain or discomfort around your scar 

  • You want to get rid of your C-section scar tissue pouch

  • You feel disconnected to your tummy and pelvic floor since having a C-section 

  • You’ve noticed a change in your bowel movements since your c section 

  • You want to learn more about your pelvic floor, core, overall health

  • You suffer from lower back pain and have been told it’s due to a weak core

  • You experience the odd leak when you jump, sneeze, cough, laugh or run

  • Your C section scar  hurts after lifting or exercise

  • You want a better looking belly and know it takes more than a few sit-ups.

Thanks to the continual rise of gynaecological conditions that require C-section procedures, as well as the increase in hysterectomies for menopausal women, the need for a holistic approach is more critical than ever.

Our rehabilitation programme addresses the needs of a growing portion of the female population who long to take back control of their health and wellness. We help our clients to start their journey to better pelvic health healing from the inside out using smart, modern movement programming to get your core fit and functioning again – without a sit-up in sight!



Following an in-depth assessment of your core strength and connection, we create a unique programme to suit your individual needs no matter how long you had a  c section.  Your coach will then work with you virtually for 6 weeks to re connect to your core, teach you how to massage your scar effectively and the importance on good nutrition on your recovery.
