We're the

Birthmark Sisterhood

We're on a mission to lift the level of pre & postnatal care for woman giving birth via C-section.  Whether planned or emergency, 1 in every 3 births is via C-section.  

Though a cesarean birth is the most common surgery world wide there is little to no support and structured guidance to help a woman prepare before hand and then heal, restore and strengthen her body after having a C-section.

We are here to change that, so woman can live their best life with confidence.

Founder, Naomi van Jaarsveld and family

I'm Naomi van Jaarsveld, founder, pre & post natal specialist, rehab trainer, mum of three boys and fellow C-section mama!  

The Birthmark Sisterhood is an organisation committed to educating, equipping and empowering a growing community of women who may, or already have given birth via C-section.

Growing a team of specialists creating complete wrap around care for this very special community of ladies.

Inside this community you will be:

  • guided and advised by a team of experts (personal trainers, scar therapists, counsellors, clinical nutritionists, midwives, physiotherapists and pelvic floor specialists).
  • empowered with the right tools to take simple but powerful steps in order to enhance your rehabilitation of your body, mind and soul from the inside out
  • taught how to safely HEAL, RESTORE and STRENGTHEN your body after having your C-section in a strategic and safe step by step process.

We know that after giving birth through having major abdominal surgery it's not wise to leave your recovery to chance.   “Sucking it up" or "pushing through the pain” won't lead you to a healed or strengthened body, but could hinder your recovery and set you back.

Therefore we are committed to EDUCATE, EQUIP & EMPOWER woman throughout this journey, whether they are about to have a C-section or have already had one or many, we provide this through our online recovery program, hands-on coaching support and our sisterhood community groups on social media platforms.  

Our "Enhance Your C-section Recovery" Evenings have been an empowering time for couples to come and be equipped while still pregnant before they give birth.

And soon we'll be adding an online option so location does not limit anybody.

Here at the Birthmark Sisterhood, we’re on a mission to take the ‘guesswork’ out of your C-section journey, so amazing women and mothers like you can embrace this season of life and confidently live the life they love.

Because no mama should have to do this journey alone! There is enough challenges as a mum of a new born to deal with.  Trying to work out what you can do to enhance recovery or potentially hinder it shouldn't be one of those challenges.  

We're on a mission to take the guess work out of your recovery.  To EDUCATE, EQUIP and EMPOWER C-section mamas to a place of strength. 


  • We believe every woman deserves to have their birth journey honoured and valued. 
  • We believe every women should have access to the right tools and support to recover to full functional strength.
  • We believe every women deserves to be confident in the choices she makes in leading her to a strong body.
  • We believe knowledge is power and equipping people with the tools and support BEFORE they have their C-section can enhance both the experience and their recovery.
  • The confusion of what you can and can't do
  • the unrealistic social expectations of "pushing through the pain"
  • The challenge that comes from a serious lack of consistent guidance, support and structured rehabilitation from the medical industry after hospital release.
  • the emotional pain, that if gone unprocessed can take the joy out of life.

...SO THAT YOU can be HEALED, RESTORED & STRONG with full confidence from the inside out.  

We value collaborating with experts in their field to bring the best advice, guidance and support to our Birthmark Sisterhood that deserves to walk this journey of recovery with confidence.

Here at the Birthmark Sisterhood we believe you're more than a mum.  We believe you deserve to have a healed body from the inside out - mind, body and soul.  

A holistic approach will give you the most effective approach to your recovery.  The best way to do that is by getting guidance and input from different specialists that will enhance and empower the recovery journey.
