Postnatal care after a c-section
Moms who deliver via C-section must be intentional in taking care of their bodies since it is major surgery. Below is some postnatal care new moms need to keep in mind after a C-section delivery, as published in a previous Smart Parenting article. (Read the full article here)
1. Take it easy
Avoid climbing stairs, strenuous chores, heavy lifting, and sex. You can gradually introduce movement to your abdominal area to promote blood circulation in the area.
2. Say no to exercise for now
Walking and basic stretching is fine, but not yet for the abdominal muscles. Ob-gyn, Dr. Teresa Bongala of St. Luke's Medical Center, says exercise is not allowed during the first six weeks—at least depending on how your body is recovering—after giving birth to allow your body to heal.
3. Wash your wound properly
Wash your wound gently by wetting a washcloth or sponge with soapy water and squeezing it over your wound. Never rub your wound (it's painful!).
While having a fitness goal is not bad after giving birth, recovery and healing after going through a c-section must remain a priority.
Cheering for all new moms out there who are currently on their weight loss journey. Remember, take it slowly but surely!ADVERTISEMENT - CONTINUE READING BELOW
