The Consequences of a Labored C-section

Did you have a c-section?

What about a LABORED c-section?

When you have a labored c-section, the baby attempts to do engage or enter the pelvis. However, if labor is not progressing and baby cannot engage into the pelvic inlet or mid-pelvis, then your doctor may have administered a c-section.

When the c-section is administered, the top of the pelvis is open. The bottom of the pelvis is closed. See the graphic below.

This pelvic position can cause a waddling gait. You may notice that when you walk, you have a lot of lateral sway. You may have lower back and sacroiliac (SI) joint pain. You may have limited hip mobility and feel stiff!

I see so many women who have had a labored c-section.

One of my favorite assessment tools is to analyze and assess your pelvis position and alignment.

If you are having:

  • Low back pain

  • Hip pain

  • Sacroiliac (SI) joint pain

  • A waddling gait

AND, had a labored c-section, book a session with me for a holistic and whole-body postpartum evaluation!
