Baby and Me Post-Caesarean Yoga
In this postnatal parent and baby class, Sarah-Jane teaches you a sequence that will help your body recover from a caesarean - or even a natural birth - by safely targeting your core and pelvic floor and stretching your ribs, torso, low back, neck and shoulders, all while finding ways to bring baby into the mix.
When is this safe to start post cesarean? Is 6 weeks too early?
My baby is two and a half years old, and I re-started my favourite physical activities soon enough, but I have neglected core exercises partly out of fear. I wish I had done this video a lot sooner; I can just about do the full sequence now. I hope to graduate to more challenging videos with a few repetitions of this.
This is a great practice that I wish I had earlier in my postpartum period, but it's still effective for checking in to my body 13 months postpartum. It incorporates a lot of the movements my physiotherapist has recommended, and is a nice way to make sure I'm tapping into my core safely and effectively as well as getting a good stretch from all the baby-carrying and nursing I'm doing.
