So I'm considering a booked c-section for various reasons that I'm too tired to list at the moment..... And am wondering if any fab mummas have any words of wisdom or advice on the recovery side of things.
The actual c-section it self does not phase me, only the recovery really worries me. So here are some of my questions...
How did you feel the following 48 hours after your section? Were you over run with pain, or did some of it get "dulled out" because you just wanted to gaze at your new addition?
Did moving around asap help with the recovery? Or did you take a more gradual approach..?
Were you given pain killers by your hospital for the pain? Was it just nurofen etc..?
Has anyone used compression, ie, belly bandit, SRC shorts etc after a c-section and did it help with healing?
Was there anything that specifically helped, any positions or tips or tricks...?
& lastly, how long did your other half take off work..? DP has two weeks, and I am thinking of having my mum stay for the 3rd week if she can depending on how I feel.
