C-section scar care with acupuncture

Some babies have to be delivered via C-section which is a surgery to deliver your baby through a cut made in your tummy and womb. A four to six-inch skin incision is made horizontally just below the pubic hairline to fit baby’s head coming through. The abdominal muscles are moved aside and a horizontal incision is also made in the uterus.

Since the incision is usually made below the pubic hairline, you might not see your scar at all. It'll look red or pink for several months but eventually it fades to a pale, flat, thin line. Some women create bigger, thicker, or raised scars than others. If your scar is itchy or painful after a few months there is inflammation. Acupuncture can help to reduce inflammation of the scar to make the scar smoother.

A recent review has studied efficacy of acupuncture in treating scars following tissue trauma. All studies reported positive outcomes for the use of acupuncture for scar symptoms, though treatment frequency, duration, number of treatments and points used varied between studies.
