C Section Recovery

by Dede
(Pembroke Pines, FL )

Here is my story about my C Section Recovery. Three weeks before my due date, I left work to go to my normal doctor’s appointment. At my appointment the doctor asked if the baby was still kicking at the same rate as before.

I remember thinking a few days prior to that the kicking had slowed down. When I informed my doctor she sent me to the hospital just as a precaution. Anyway, the doctor on call first decided to induce labor and when I wasn’t dilating, decided to have emergency C-Section. After the C-section I had my first adorable baby girl and I was elated.

To get back into shape I first invested in a support girdle, which provides needed support to weak stomach muscles. Second, I did exercises that involved using what I had at home. I started with only a few bending over and touching my toes. I also used my stairs by stepping up and down doing as much as can.

As I slowly gained some strength, I increased these exercises and also started taking leisurely walks with my baby.

As for my scar, I continued using cocoa butter, which I used throughout my pregnancy (to avoid stretch marks). I think it took me about 3 weeks to fully recover from the C-Section but to get back in shape involved watching my diet and increasing the exercises until my doctor gave me the okay to do full workouts.
