Have you done a C-section? With a C-section, there are a few things that you will need to be watchful for about six weeks unlike when it’s a normal delivery.
❕ Hold on to your sneezes, coughs and any vigorous involuntary action.
❕ Laughter should also be controlled as your stitches are raw.
👉🏻 Support your belly with a pillow whenever required.
👉🏻 Avoid foods that makes you gassy. That could worsen the pain.
❕ Avoid eating anything that constipates you. Exerting too much pressure may result in loosening the stitches.
👉🏻 Don’t try to climb stairs. It is advised to use elevators.
👉🏻 Avoid looking at the incision under the belly.
❕ If you really want to check how far the incision has healed, ask your partner or husband to check it for you.
👉🏻 Ask for help with the household stuff.
👉🏻 Don’t ignore any painkillers your doctor prescribes. They would be safe for you and your baby.
Giving birth is forever divine, whether it is through a vaginal delivery or a C-section. Enjoy the feeling of being a mother. Happy and safe motherhood.
