C- section recovery programme

C-Section Recovery 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 moms simply need more help and the HCR® Coaches are deeply trained to assist you in your deep recovery and return to awesome, fully functional abdominals.

No matter how long ago you experienced a C-Section type incision and for whatever reason, if you are experiencing discomfort, the C-Section Recovery Programme will probably give you the freedom and better looking tummy, that you thought wasn’t possible ever again.

In the UK nearly 1/4 of births are via C-Section and 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.

And with not a sit-up in sight, this is all about healing INSIDE OUT and smart, modern movement programming to get your Core ‘fit’ and functioning again!  The emphasis is squarely on these fundamental pillars that help us to create a BESPOKE programme for you! No one-size fits all here!



So, how does it work?

  • On application to Nikki to join the programme, you’ll be asked to complete our HCR Red Flag Pre-Screen to decide if this ‘conservative’ exercise-based programme is right for you or whether you need clinical attention.  If you’re a great fit…..
  • You’ll then be all set to attend for your first session where you’ll receive your HCR Client Education Booklet and the items of fitness kit required for the course.
  • This programme runs for 6 sessions and and you will meet with Nikki once a week live or online.
  • You’ll then speak with Nikki and go through a hands-on Pre-Screening which includes tests for your Core function so that we know where you are on your recovery journey and the programme can truly be tailored to your needs.
  • Both homework and following the HCR Healing Nutrition Principles are an essential part of the puzzle and when followed will truly improve your results and the value you derive from the programme.  Nikki will guide you through these principles to help you find simple ways for you to make a big difference to how you support your health via eating ‘just real food’.
  • One or more of the sessions may include a massage and soft tissue work.

Frequently asked questions

  • Can I do the sessions live online through zoom?

    Yes you can. If coming to the studio doesn’t work for you right now we can do the sessions live over zoom.

  • What if I can’t make a session?

    Sometimes life happens and you might not be able to make one of the sessions. As long as you give 24 hours notice we can rearrange the appointment and continue where we left off when we next meet. There will also be video workouts that you can do at home in between sessions.

  • Can I bring my children?

    You are very welcome to bring along your babies or young children to the sessions. However if it is possible for you to have the hour to yourself you will be able to focus much more easily and have some ‘you time’.

  • Is there parking?

    There is parking on my drive way or just outside the house on the road.

  • What do I need to bring?

    As we exercise in the session it is best to wear your workout clothes. We will exercise in barefoot. You will be given your educational booklet and kit bag in the first class that you will then need for each session.
