Recovery of Your Health after Cesarean Section

If a baby is born with the help of Cesarean section, it means crying first - it's a special miracle. But you need to recover as soon as possible after this surgery to enjoy the happiness of childbirth.

The first day after the Cesarean section was the hardest. Small things like, such as turning to the side, coughing, deep breathing or getting to bed are very difficult for you right now.


The first day after surgery the new mother was in intensive care, where a nurse and anesthetist took care of her. They take blood pressure, pulse rate, temperature, uterine contraction level and vaginal secretion intensity, urine.

A nurse changes the bandage in the post-operative sewing area. After taking epidural anesthesia or spine a woman should stay in bed from 3 to 12 hours. He had to get up one by one, without hurry, move suddenly and surely in front of some medical staff or relatives. She can sit on the 2nd day after surgery.

To feel more comfortable after the surgery, you just need to follow these tips:

Set aside

1. It is easier for you to turn from back to back, if you, first, bend your knees so that your feet are fixed to the level you are lying on.

2. Position your feet at this level and lift your hips to pull from shoulder to knee.

3. Turn your hips and tighten them. Then turn your upper body in the same direction.

So you're lying on the side. This method saves your stitches from damage and prevents your elbows from rubbing against the sheets.


If you are given general anesthetics during surgery, you need to cough to get rid of mucus accumulated in your lungs.

Use a simple technique called "belt" to cleanse your throat without the painful sensation. Regardless of its ironic name, it is highly effective and highly recommended by experts.

1. You need to strengthen the stitches with your hands, small pillows or tie them with towels.

2. Now take a deep breath, filling your lungs completely.

3. The next action - full, sharp, but accurate - draws in your stomach, but swells.

4. Speak a sound, resembling a "bow".

5. Repeat several times for an hour, especially if you feel gurgling or cramping in your thorax. If your thorax is clear and you get up regularly, there's no need to do this regularly.

Get up and walk

The nurse will help you get up first with your doctor's permission. While doing this, you may experience weakness and dizziness. Do not be scared! This is natural, since you only have a cave operation! Regardless of whether you are given general anesthesia or epidural anesthesia, the feeling of weakness during the first encounter is inevitable.

Now that you've been raised for the first time, think about the toughest things have gone, and your first addition has been that you're on your way to recovery and it's going to be smooth and fast.

Do the following exercises to get up:

1. Turn sides, let your legs rest on the edge of the bed and move to a sitting position.

2. Sit down for a while and do your leg movements.

3. When you're ready, pull your feet down and stand (with the help of someone). Try to stand as straight as you can. This will not damage your stitches, even if it looks stretchy.

4. Once you're used to standing up, take small steps.

Each time you wake up, you'll see that it's easier for you.

Now try to increase your running time gradually. You should not forget to think:

- I'm a good girl. I'm getting stronger with each step. Each step approaches my release.

The wind

They appear after any operation in the abdominal cavity. One of the causes of this problem is the delay in bowel activity as a result of surgery.

Following exercises will help you cope with the wind:

- long breaths;

- swinging on armchairs (if you have a breeze at home already);

- Exceptions to food and beverages cause wind from postoperative surgery.


Another delicate topic - maybe difficulty with urinating. They may appear only after a catheter in the ureter, anesthesia and surgery on the abdominal cavity.

Don't worry, drink more fluids, try urinating in the bathroom or bath. If you can't urinate on your own, you still need a catheter to clear the bladder.


First day.

A woman can drink non-gas water, acidic with lemon juice. Considering the fact that a drop bottle is usually used after surgery, on the first day a mother receives all the nutrition directly in the bloodstream.

Day 2

On the 2nd day after the Cesarean section, a woman was transferred from intensive care to ward after death. Diet after section Cesarea resembles diet after major surgery. Square food is excluded - during this time, you need to supply the maximum canal organ.

Day 3 and so on

Food rationale should change gradually. On the 3rd day after the operation, you can include non-fat chicken soup, shredded boiled meat, cotton cheese or meat or soufflé, porridge in your menu. The entire plan is divided into 5-6 servings. You can drink sweet tea, not kiss, tie, dog rose extract. The average amount of food per serving is 70-100 ml.

The first independent grandma should fall on the 5th day of the 5th postoperatively. After this, you can return to the diet, which you ate during pregnancy, but take into account restrictions, recommended for breastfeeding mothers. You know, milk is currently appearing as a rule.

Stool normalization and preventive measures against constipation:

- simple physical activity,

- An adequate quantity of vegetables and fruits (especially prunes) in your rations. During this time there has been no nutritional difference for women, who provided help with the Cesarean section.


It is possible to have your first meal in the operating room not yet, under the condition that you are given a local anesthetic, and hospital rules allow such food. However, you need to wait a little while feeding, if you are given general anesthetics or your baby needs medical attention.

Try to get your baby out of the ward, as soon as you recover. You need to keep in mind that some of the physical factors make the baby difficult to breastfeed.

Even fear can be the first reason for breastfeeding to fail. Moreover, milk may come later (on the 9th day) due to the fact that you are given general anesthetics and restrictions on the use of uterine contraceptive drugs, hormone deficiency, which are kept secret during natural birth. However, your baby needs so much milk!

Remember this rule

- Require your baby to insert it into your chest after delivery or after you have recovered from anesthesia. But don't expect the real food from the first one to put on the breast, as you both still need a lot to learn.

- Ask your doctor for support, if you are facing a doctor or nurse ban on feeding your baby in a post-natal ward, especially if giving birth well. They should bring your baby to you to give you milk.

- Usually they use medicines, compatible with breastfeeding in a post-Cesarean hospital, but nurses still scare mothers with dangerous drugs, especially antibiotics. Ask your doctor what preparation is given to you, and whether it is suitable for breastfeeding. Write down the names of these drugs.

- It may happen at that time, to feed, that your baby will sleep. Wake him up, regardless of the fact that it may seem unethical. When he wakes up, start eating all at once. The key is your desire to start and continue your diet. Milk processing depends on 2 main factors: your confidence that you can feed your baby and baby sucking activities.

- Each time you bring your baby to feed, place him or her in the breast for sure, even when he or she is sleeping: the baby can suck even half asleep.

- Be patient. Don't worry, your baby will not be hungry, because the baby's newborn needs little food. First of all, your baby needs love and a hug. Cuddle him to yourself. He will "remember" your heartbeat and "know" you.

- If the baby is with you only on day 3 and kept separately:

While staying in the ward separately from your baby, pull both breasts apart - preferably doing 8-10 short 5 minute attempts, every 2 hours, except for breaks from 24.00 to 6.00. Your baby is newborn, and there is little colostrum still produced - according to natural needs. So your 5-10 g is interesting - enough. And it is impossible to take everything out. Don't torture yourself. Put the colostrum in a bottle, it should be kept in the refrigerator for 8 hours, at room temperature. While the first opportunity to give your baby a colostrum is best to use a spoon, place the baby on your elbows, so that he or she will lie half vertically on it.

If they bring your baby to you on a regular basis, keep 6-8 penalties, excluding night breaks. As a rule, every second meal is ineffective, because the baby is given supplements, and he or she is usually sucked out of the bottle. If your baby is actively breast feeding in the correct position during feeding, you can treat this date as a discharge. If she is inhaled, flush her breast after eating.

- Even with each date with your baby, you should focus not on the amount he sucks, but on the way he takes the breast.

- Carefully place your baby on both breasts during a feeding, for better stimulation than lactation. Do this until you experience a large flood of milk, which may start on day 2 after they start bringing your baby to you regularly.

- Eat your baby only when he's quiet. If not, he can't find and catch the nipple. If the baby cries out loud, hug her, swallow and calm her. Then give her a breast. To reduce postoperative fatigue, place a pillow under your baby while feeding, lying next to you. With time the stitch pain will pass and you will feel the joy of feeding your baby.

You're home with your baby!

Don't worry, if you have problems eating your baby. You should start eating as quietly and relaxing as possible. Learn to think of anything that can make you sad or upset.

In addition, psychological stress can reduce milk extraction twice.

- Invite a breastfeeding consultant to learn breastfeeding practices and techniques (you need to learn how to put, remove your baby to / from breastfeeding properly, make yourself comfortable, eat in different places, eat and sleep with your baby , right, if necessary)

- Have your baby breastfeed every 2 hours before talking about breastfeeding, regardless of whether or not he or she is sleeping, excluding nighttime breaks from 22.00-24.00 until 4:00 am.

- Take your baby to bed with you, as soon as you sleep and sleep with him all night.

You are nutrition during pregnancy

During breastfeeding, you should include in your daily ration of at least 500 ml of milk, kefir or curdled milk, 50-100 g of cotton cheese, about 200 g of meat, 600 g of vegetables (preferably include different vegetables separately), 1 egg, 300-500 g of fruit (quantity should be gradually increased), 35 g butter and 20 g of vegetable oil.

You should exclude alcohol and food, causing allergies to your rations: honey, citrus, strawberries, chocolate, canned foods, cooked meats. You need to drink enough fluid. It is also recommended to recycle complex vitamins for pregnant and nursing mothers, as vitamin and mineral requirements are still high, such as during pregnancy.

It's advisable that someone will help you at home, so you can devote your time to recovery and breastfeeding. 2-3 months later you will be able to do special exercises for abdominal elasticity, leg tenderness and breast beauty.

Anyway, now you're a MOM! Proud, but gentle and loving. Cover up on a comfortable home and close it carefully, because now your happiness is concentrated here - maternity happiness!
