In honor of C-Section Awareness Month, we are going to feature some really amazing stories of real Mommies and their miraculous baby journeys that involve c-sections. We are beyond excited to share these beautiful testimonials with you, especially those of you who are c-section Mommies, too!
Before we get started, we wanted to share a little bit of education on the subject of scarring. One of the difficulties in the long and often painful recovery process is the scar tissue. Whether the incision is performed by using stitches or staples, many women are faced with scar tissue later on that they feel is unsightly and itchy.
Scar tissue can often times, depending on the person and their genetic predisposition, become darker in color, raised and keloidic. Here we will talk more about the cosmetic nature of c-section scars as opposed to medical complications.
One solution that we’ve come up with as a company is in our Healing Face & Body Balm. First off, it’s safe and contains no chemicals. Women don’t have to worry about the risk of infection or weird chemical reactions as a result of using it, which is huge. It not only provides the soothing relief from irritation and itchiness that can be caused from healing scar tissue, but counteracts the constant chaffing that occurs from clothing material rubbing up against the incision later on down the road.
Made with 100% natural ingredients like organic shea, avocado and coconut butters along with castor, vitamin E and jojoba, our Healing Balm softens and moisturizes skin while smoothing out the tone and texture of the tissue.
Calendula and oatmeal also provide relief to the deeper layers of the skin’s tissue as the butters lock in moisture, thereby increasing the overall success of the healing process. Vitamin E also promotes the elasticity of the skin tissue at and around the site. Lavender is not only soothing, but is an antiseptic – another bonus.
In order to most effectively use, we recommend massaging Healing Balm into the skin at least twice a day and anytime you feel itchiness in between.
While we do hope that Healing Face & Body Balm provides cosmetic benefits to c-section Mommies everywhere, we also hope that when they look upon the scars they see the miracle above the scar. Your beautiful baby came out of there and, in most cases, it was a life saving intervention. Of course, we all want to look and feel our best and that’s where we come in. In the meantime, congrats on your little miracle!
