The importance of postnatal massage after C-section cannot be overemphasized. However, since a C-section is an essential operation for the abdominal cavity, all postnatal recovery measures, such as massage after C-section, should be postponed until full recovery. Although a postnatal massage can help you recover after birth, stitches may take several weeks after C-section to heal.
Like other body massages, postnatal baby massage have many features, regardless of how you give birth. It relieves pain and restores weak muscles, physically and mentally. Therefore, it is essential to choose Massager for postnatal pregnancy experience, especially for pregnant women with C-section delivery.
The question “when can do post natal massage?” is probably one of the most common ones we’ve received on regular basis. If you’ve had a C-section delivery, it is advisable to seek a gynaecologist’s opinion before starting a postnatal massage or postnatal exercise. In the first few weeks after C-section delivery, your body is potentially more susceptible and vulnerable to infection, so you may not yet be ready for a body massage.
At PNSG, we generally advise mothers who had gone through c-section to wait for a bout 21 days before starting their session. Of course, if they have any other worries, it is best to consult a doctor for an advice. In the meantime, you can still gently massage your arms and legs if you’d like to. Choose proper massage oils that are also safe for babies in case you breastfeed and it will most likely touch your baby’s skin. For the best choice of oils and others, you can count on MumChecked, a credible shopping platform that offers various maternity products.
The treatment can be internal or external. Healing the scar does not mean that you are healing on the inside. If the surface is not massaged correctly, you may experience severe side effects in the future, such as back pain, pelvis, urinary incontinence, or difficulty understanding.

A C-section is often planned with or involves an emergency decision. Moms who had undergone C-section are prone to being more tired than others. Spend some time to rest and let yourself heal first before you move on to the next step of healing. When you’re ready for it, you can start with slow and careful exercise to promote healing, eliminate bloating, and stimulate movement. Childbirths aren’t always easy and can be draining, so treat yourself the best way possible to come out of it better and more relaxed.
