Exercises after a c section / ceasarean section
How quickly you can exercise after C section?
Congratulations with your new baby!
May be your pregnancy did not go as planned and you got a c-section. What is next? I have never planned c-section, but dreamed about perfect natural birth! Anyway, I can not change anything now and I'm happy my baby is safe!
So what kind of exercises we can do after a caesarean section?
Congratulation with a new baby!
C-section and aftercare
Things you need for the first month after the delivery...
If you had a caesarian section...
- 1. Walking is an excellent exercise. Especially with baby in a buggy. You need fresh air and baby as well. Find some mommy friend and walk in the park together. Plus buy a pedometer and increase speed and distance every week.
For all hot mamas there!
Post c section exercises
2. Swimming is recommended after two months. I personally love swimming. Great way to control your weight, tone muscles and relax. I choose swimming because if you came to swimming pool, there is no way back and you do the exercise.
What else you can do?
Aerobics and gym work not recommended before three months, so be careful. You want you c-section to heal 100%. If you want to start earlier consult your doctor.
I bought a twister and I do 20 minutes every day.As well I run up and down the stairs. Free and it's good cardio.
Great C-section Recovery stuff
C-section is a major operation so educate yourself about what happened to you.
You might need these as well
If you are a patient who has had or is about to have a Cesarean delivery, you might need these as well. C-section underwear and c-section dvds or a girdle ( I had one myself).
