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. Drink fluids. Drink water and other fluids to replenish the fluids lost during delivery, and to prevent constipation. Eat well. Eating nutritious meals and snacks is especially important when you recover from surgery. when you were in the hospital, you will need to keep moving. Try to increase your time walking by a few minutes each day. 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. 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. Wear pads to absorb vaginal bleeding.

    Thank you so much...

Answer: Hi.. After your delivery, you can use a Maternity belt. During pregnancy, the wall of your abdomen stretch to accommodate a growing uterus. These over stretched muscles don't contract immediately after delivery, leaving flabby skin and fat around the abdomen. Wrapping the abdomen belt will help tighten and strengthen these muscles. Other than this, have non greasy food, avoid junk and sweets completely. Drink lot of fluids including water and juices. Try to include 30 minutes work out in your schedule (after three months of your delivery) . Initially it will be difficult, I understand, but, later on you can. If you follow this religiously, it will help you definitely.

Question: How to take care of self after c section delivery
Answer: There are a lot of things to be considered and taken care of and your body goes through a lot. You are in a delicate state of mind and body so there are certain Do’s and Don’ts that need to be kept in mind.    1. Avoid certain foods Foods that cause gas or constipation must be avoided at all costs because it is very important to maintain the appropriate diet after C-section. These foods can cause pain in your tummy as they strain the bowels and may make it painful for you to poop. 2. Don’t crack up We feel bad just telling you this but laughing too hard can actually make the C-section incision hurt. So if you’re surrounded by a funny bunch, maybe tell them to make only snicker-worthy-jokes and save the ROFL-Jokes for later. This also goes for coughing but unfortunately, you can’t really control how you cough so nothing much you can do there.     3. Do not resume life immediately As soon as you get back home from having a Cesarean, your doctor would have advised you to not strain yourself and get as much rest as possible. This is what you should do and this means to say ‘NO’ to household work too. Never do anything unless it is absolutely necessary. Sit down, put your feet up and just relax. 4. Climbing stairs This is also a strict ‘NO-NO’ as climbing the stairs actually requires a lot of effort and you run the risk of the stitches coming apart. But even if you do have to climb the stairs, take them one at a time and do not go on them in a hurry. 5. Do not lift the baby You can have the baby in your arms when you are feeding him or her but it is not recommended that you walk around lifting the baby as it will be extremely painful and the baby’s legs might also come in contact with the incision area. 6. Avoid sex For at least 6 weeks after you have your operation done or until the wound heals, it’s best you stay away from sex. Always make sure to get the green signal from your gynecologist before you get physical with your partner after giving birth. 7. Stop worrying A lot of moms blame it on their misfortune that they had to go through this surgery. But there’s no point in beating yourself up about this. Try not to get depressed and concentrate on yours and your baby’s well being instead. 8. Do not let the wound get wet For the first few days after the surgery when the wound is still fresh, always shower with the dressing on top of the wound. Also don’t touch the incision unnecessarily even if you feel a little itch, resist yourself.
