Healing After Cesarean: Post-Partum Recovery and Beyond

Most women do not anticipate having a Cesarean section and yet at least one out of every three mothers today have experienced birth in an operating room. This major surgery can have a profound impact on both your physical and emotional recovery after birth. While it may have been necessary to assure the health of your child, you or your baby may be experiencing complications or side-effects that you didn't expect. It also affects your plans for more children. Please join us for a presentation and discussion on ways to heal from cesarean birth. Discussion will focus on a variety of post-surgical treatments and emotional support resources in our area. This meeting will also be valuable to women who are interested in VBAC. The discussion will be led by Janet Brown, Licensed Massage Therapist owner of Integrative Health Massage Therapy; Laura Possessky, ICAN of DC leader and birth rights advocate.

Date: December 21, 2008
Time: 4:00-5:00 PM
Place: Healing Arts of Capitol Hill. Address: 320 G Street, NE

This event is sponsored by ICAN of DC, dedicated to education about pregnancy, childbirth and cesarean prevention.
