    Default Swimming after c-section?

    How long did you wait before you went swimming after your c-section? Did you protect your incision site in any way?

    TIA!

    I went swimming about 3 months after. I had to wait as I had an infection in my incision site.

    I was swimming in our pool after 4 weeks. My OB said as long as bleeding has stopped and incision is closed.

    I waited 4 months only because my bub was born in winter. I was told that I was okay to go swimming as soon as the bleeding stopped. I want to get in the water ASAP this time, I love the feeling of all my muscles getting some relief when I get in the water.

    I'd wait until the 6 weeks, and be very careful of which strokes you do. I found stretching upwards was the worst thing for me after my csection, I hurt myself very badly putting the washing on the line at about 4 weeks.. I felt fine but my body obviously wasn't ready. It's easy to overdo it without realising.
