This book was bought just before my 3rd section and I wish I had bought it before. The book details appropriate exercises with a time-frame and gives advice on aftercare re the scar etc. Overall, it is an informative book and written in a way that is not patronising. My only criticism is that the information on eating healthily is rather sparse and as a mum who normally gains a stone in weight through breastfeeding I was looking for more meal plans and ideas for a balanced diet tailored to a breastfeeding mum. However, it's worth it's weight in gold for the exercise advice.

I had an unplanned caesarean and although it was all done very well there was not much info afterwards (when I left the hospital) so I ordered this book - I was very surprised how few books there seemed to be on the subject since something like 1 in 5 women has one! It's great, I had faith in it as soon as I read a really spot-on description of how the stitches feel! It has information on what is done and how, the scar healing, what to avoid (lifting etc) and then lots of info on exercises you can do as you recover, starting from day one in the hospital (really gentle tiny movements!) through to months later. Really pleased with it, wish the hospital had mentioned it or even given it out to anyone having a c-section. It also talks about planned (elective) caesareans. Great book.

This book really helped me both in advance of my planned c-section (the hospital didn't provide any info!) as well as afterwards. Clear, practical advice on aftercare and brilliant exercises covering the complete recovery period and beyond. A must for anyone going in for an elective c-section.

Having had my first baby by emergency Caesarean and enduring a difficult recovery, I was very anxious about my second section. Thank goodness I bought this book. Instead of spending months hunched over too afraid to stand tall and get on with physical tasks, this book gave me the confidence to help myself recover. The day after the op I stood up straight, took a walk around the ward and have never looked back. If you are due to have a Caesarean, this book is worth every penny. Good luck with your births.

So glad I had this book and the caesarean belt when I was recovering from my twin birth. Really made me feel less alone, amongst all those Mum's who gave birth naturally. The exercises have really helped my abdomen recover.
