    I had an amazing time and can’t wait to share so much wonderful information with my chapter, birth community, and doula clients. I have to say that the most eye-opening information to me though was just the mere fact that scar stretching is a GOOD thing! It has been over 10 years since my cesarean and I’ve been very careful to not do any exercises, stretches, or moves with my body where I felt tugging/pulling at the scar, believing that pain meant “don’t do that.” I had no idea that kind of thinking was incorrect. I was completely blown away with Isa Herrera’s session with all her incredible info on post-cesarean care of the scar and muscles. I look forward to having her slides available to share with all the cesarean moms I know and love! Thanks Isa for your great work and for ICAN for knowing what an important topic this was to cover!
