I am studying a yoga teachers training course and as part of anatomy
module have chosen to do my assignment on c-sections and the damage
it does to the muscles and nerves of the lower abdomen (as I have
experienced this myself) and would really appreciate any information
you can give me.
I know there is damage; it is just not so easy to find proof online

assignment is due in 10 days so I do not have much time! Thanking
you in advance
