    Recovering from a caesarean section delivery will take much longer than a vaginal birth . The pain is certainly much more intense, and you may experience gas pain. The best remedy is to take it easy for the next six weeks. That means: no climbing of stairs, no strenuous chores, and no heavy lifting. Walking helps speed up recovery, but don’t overdo it; a few steps around the bed should do, especially in the week right after the surgery.


    Call a Friend: Ask friends or family for help with cleaning and food preparation. Take it easy when you move from a lying to a sitting and/or standing position; either wear a binder around your middle or hug a pillow to your tummy when you get up.
