The event info can be found on facebook:   http://www.facebook.com/home.php#/event.php?eid=232700714009&ref=ts

Check out the email from ICAN’s president, Desirre Andrews:

Dear friend of ICAN,

I am very excited to announce our January educational webinar, an online session presented by physical therapist Isa Hererra and intended for anyone who wants to learn cesarean scar care techniques. Whether you are a mom or a health care professional, I encourage you to join us on January 24th at 9:00 pm EST (see below for other time zones) for this fantastic session!

Cesarean Scar Care in the Post-Partum Period

Presented by physical therapist Isa Herrera, MSPT, CSCS, Clinical Director of Renew Physical Therapy in NYC, this great online session will teach and guide you through the basics of cesarean scar care in the post-partum period.

This much-needed class is geared toward new moms and healthcare professionals alike who are looking to understand and implement some real-world techniques to get relief from pain, itching, burning, tingling… and also learn how to restore the abdominal muscles and posture so that you feel like yourself again.

Much of the great material to be included in this webinar is taken from Isa’s new book, Ending Female Pain, A Woman’s Manual. The book has been endorsed by filmmakers Ricki Lake and Abby Epstein, Dr. Jacques Moritz, and most recently by Jill Osborne of the IC-Network and NY Times best-selling author and gynecologist Dr. Christiane Northrup.

Highlights of this webinar include:
Understand how to locate scar adhesions and why they are so important to eliminate
Learn mobilization and massage techniques for cesareans
Restore abdominal function after cesarean with safe abdominal exercises
Learn the connection between Diastasis Recti and low back pain and pelvic pain
Learn simple yoga stretches for indirect scar mobilization during the early post-partum period
