10 Tips For Recovery After C-Section

  • Don’t strain your body when you get back on your feet. No heavy lifting, stretching or bending.
  • Use a pillow against your tummy when you feel like laughing, sneezing, or coughing.
  • Take your medications.

  • Buy a pair of high-waisted panties to help keep your tummy in and protect your stitches.
  • Keep the stitches clean. Don’t pick or scratch though the itch is a sign of healing.
  • Keep hydrated. Drink lots of water and eat healthy foods to prevent constipation and bloating.
  • Avoid tight clothings.
  • Before showering, apply vaseline over the stitches and put a waterproof material over it. Water could infect the area. Pat dry after shower.
  • Exercise. Light walks and simple non-stressful exercise.
