I had a c section with DS due to placenta praevia. I'm now debating whether or not to go the elective c-section route for baby number 2, but I'm concerned about recovery when I will have a 16 month old to run around after. DH had 6 weeks off after DS was born to help out but not sure if he will get as long home this time round so I may not have as much help.
How did you cope with recovering at home when you had other children to care for? Especially keen to hear from those with younger children. Could you pick them up? Did you find you just had to get in and do things even if you were in pain?
