Answer: Hi darling, congratulations on your delivery, some quick checks for you to take care of yourself along with baby after c-section.
Rest. Sleep seven to eight hours a night if possible. Sleeping encourages tissue growth, which will help your injuries heal. Sleep also lowers your stress level, which in turn can lower your inflammation and otherwise improve your health
Drink fluids. Drink water and other fluids to replenish the fluids lost during delivery, and to prevent constipation. Your fluid intake will be monitored in the hospital, but once you are home it is on you to drink adequate fluid. When breast-feeding, keep a glass of water beside you.
Eat well. Eating nutritious meals and snacks is especially important when you recover from surgery. Your digestive system will be recovering from the surgery, so you might want to make a few adjustments to your regular diet. If your stomach is upset, eat bland, low-fat foods, such as rice, broiled chicken, yogurt, and toast.
when you were in the hospital, you will need to keep moving. Try to increase your time walking by a few minutes each day. This does not mean you should be exercising! Do not bike, jog, or do any strenuous exercise for at least six weeks after your C-section,
Support your abdomen. Supporting your wound will decrease pain and lower the risk of your wound re-opening. Hold a pillow over the incision when you cough or take deep breaths.
Clean your incision. Wash it daily with warm, soapy water, and pat dry. If your health care provider has put strips of tape on your incision, let them fall off on their own, or remove them after a week. You may cover your wound with a gauze bandage for comfort or if it is weeping, but make sure to change the bandage daily.
Wear loose clothing. Dress in loose, soft clothing that does not rub against your incision
Abstain from sex. After a c-section or a vaginal delivery, you body may need four to six weeks of healing before you can engage in most forms of sexual activity. If you have had a c-section, it might take even longer for your incision to be firmly healed. Wait until your doctor says it's safe before engaging in sex.
Wear pads to absorb vaginal bleeding.
