Emergency C-section


The Arc was used on a 37-year-old lady who was 42 weeks pregnant when she went into an induced labour and had to have an emergency C-section. The doctors advised that it would be 6 weeks before she was able to drive and three months before being able to exercise and introduce abdominal workouts. The Arc was used every night for the initial 6 weeks, sometimes using it during the day too. After 6 weeks, the Arc was used every other night, and now she only uses Arc once a week as required.


In the first week the midwife said the healing was remarkable. The wound was clean and tidy with some bruising. By the third week she was walking up to three miles and the doctor had also cleared her to drive! By week four the wound was healing well and she started riding again (walk work and canter out of the saddle). In the fifth week, she started sitting canter in short intervals and began jogging. By week 10 the doctor had cleared her to resume normal exercise! Just 16 weeks after surgery she started jumping up to 110cm, and competed in a dressage competition.
