I am so proud to be an Ambassador for this BESPOKE Programme.
Rates of caesarean delivery as a percentage of all live births have increased in most countries in recent decades. This is a major procedure and yet there doesn’t seem to be much guidance on how to recovery from it.
It’s not uncommon to experience slow, poor & painful healing. You may feel some numbness or soreness around the scar even 1-2 years later!! You may have a pulling feeling around the scar when you perform certain movements. The lack of ability to connect with the Core and Pelvic Floor post C-Section can be a huge concern.
Posture, Alignment, Breathing Patterns, Nutrition, essential Vitamins & Minerals, Hydration, release of possible adhesions and scar tissue all play PIVITOL roles in help women who have birthed via C-Section to recover great function and connection to their Core and Pelvic Floor. C-Section recovery is massively overlooked in the world of ‘tummy rehab’ probably as less women have them compared with vaginal births but the percentage is rising globally and THERE IS A DIFFERENCE in the recovery story as anyone who has had one will confess.
Well ladies….you do not have to live with this feeling anymore!!!
Healing your Core and restoring to full function is an INSIDE-OUT JOB and there is no exercise in the world that will work effectively if your nutrition, your rest strategies, self-care and how you re-connect to your Core after the C-Section isn’t right.
The Holistic Core Restore® C-Section Recovery Programme is a 6 week progressed system that will take you on a journey of education, re-connection, re-alignment, optimal nutrition, THE RIGHT KIND OF EXERCISE, in the right amounts and the right time.
No one-size fits all here and your success is guaranteed as long as you make time for it and stick to the programme!!!

- In-depth Health Questionnaire
- Initial 90 minute consultation which includes postural and alignment assessment, hands on therapy, breath pattern analysis & reconnection of ‘Core Synergy’
- Education of WHAT I’m asking you to do and WHY
- 3 follow up 60 minute appointments (usually taken every 3-4 weeks)
- Bespoke programme
- Equipment needed for homework
- Regular contact between appointments via Skype, email, phone, text
“I’m so glad I found Rachel! I have just completed the 6 week C-Section Recovery Programme. I had suffered from a back injury before I fell pregnant and had a difficult pregnancy. My son was born by emergency section. 9 months on, I had lost most of my baby weight but still had no core strength whatsoever. Before I had my son I worked out a lot, but I have never focused on the core and pelvic floor in the way that I did during this programme. It’s not a way of exercising that I have ever experienced before and I couldn’t have done it without Rachel.
I’ve just come to the end of the programme and I have lost 5lbs, 1.5 inches around my waist, half an inch from my hips and 2 inches from my bust. I haven’t got a six pack but my stubborn tummy pouch has gone and I feel great as a result of the nutrition and supplements. But most importantly, I can feel a huge difference in my core and pelvic floor. When we started out, I was trying really hard but not a lot was happening! Now I can easily activate those muscles and feel them getting stronger every week.
What I like most about working with Rachel is that she is a busy mum too. She totally gets it. She keeps in touch and encourages you every step of the way. I’m going to continue working with Rachel one to one and I’m really excited about it.”
The first is a hands on up to 90 minutes session and then three follow up sessions that will last 45-60 minutes. We will be in constant contact throughout and you are not left to fend for yourself!
**As of August 2022, all appointments will take place at my treatment room at St Johns. The address will be given to you once the booking has been made**
