Finally, Easy After-Cesarean Care for the 1.3 Million C-Section Moms

SAN DIEGO, Dec. 3 /PRNewswire/ -- The C-section has hit number one for inpatient surgery in the US according to the Department of Health and Human Services. Scarring, swelling, tenderness and surgical recovery are a reality for 1.3 million C-section moms annually.

C-Panty, The After Cesarean Underwear(TM) attempts to address the needs of Cesarean moms through a seamless, washable underwear designed with the post-surgical concerns of a C-section in mind. See

C-Panty, is designed to minimize scar appearance, support and flatten the incision area and promote comfort after a C-section. Catherine Brooks OTR, MPH, a two-time C-section mom with healthcare experience and C-Panty's designer, describes the panties as having an inner silicone layer and an incision area support panel.

"Clinically, silicone provides a moisture retaining area for minimizing scar appearance while the compression panel helps support, flatten and control swelling at the weakened incision area," Brooks says.

Along with product purchasing and C-Panty use guidelines, the website has references about silicone and compression scar management, techniques that have been used for years by doctors to treat patients with surgical wounds and burn scars.

Top concerns of moms during the design phase of C-Panty included scarring, itching, the discomfort of traditional underwear waistbands, support panties being too compressive, and the dreaded C-shelf.

The "C-shelf" was described as the "poof" around the incision area that lasted months in many moms. "Fortunately, the compression for scar management can double for a cosmetic reason. A great side benefit," says Brooks, "is that the isolated compression slims the incision area without the excess pressure of a waistband or support panties." The group also wanted an easy, one step product that was not a granny panty. And C-Panty was born.

One mom, a neuroscientist, was amazed that C-Panty affected her heavy, over six month old scar. "I really think that C-Panty has helped the healing process," she said.

Others were just happy to have the support and compression for comfort and body slimming. A nurse who had a mild scar, loved the support C-Panty provided when she was on her feet all day. Another mother said, "I wish all my underwear were this comfortable".

Says Brooks, "You're taking great care of your baby ... remember to take care of yourself too."
